We are a communication channel between parents, teachers and the school.
We carry out fundraising activities to raise money for:
– Recently we have embarked on a beautification project around the school which has involved the installing of artwork and the redesign of an outdoor area near the Year 7 and 8 block.
– Specific equipment items we see a need for in the school for example in 2008 the PTA purchased lockers for the Year 9 students, the balance not taken up then being offered to the rest of the school.
– Sunshades have also been an area where the PTA has fundraised to help the school provide necessary shade for its students.
– Sponsorship for school sports teams or other school groups, such as the Year 13 Fiji Service trip and the school production.
– Special requests from the school, heads of school faculties or Board of Trustees
– We provide a social network for parents to meet both as members of the PTA and at various social functions we arrange for the school families throughout the year.

The PTA meet following the Board of Trustees meeting in the college staff-room. We welcome all new and existing parents from the school community to join us for our meetings to see what the latest happenings are. Our meetings are quite informal and usually include, along with our business, some light-hearted fun.
Friends of the PTA is an increasingly important Parent Support Group
Friends of the PTA are parents who may be unable to attend regular meetings but would be available to help out when and where necessary throughout the year. This is a great way to stay involved in your child’s school but unable to commit to the PTA. An example of where a request could be made is for help with baking or helping out with morning teas after masses. If you would like more information regarding the Friends of the PTA or wish to put your name on the database please email:
The PTA has recently reviewed its policies and procedures to ensure the PTA vision aligns with that of the Senior Management Committee and the Board of Trustees. All activities and events for the year ahead have met with approval and have the support of both of these teams.
The PTA meet following the Board of Trustees meeting at 5pm at the school staffroom and we welcome new members in 2019 . If you don’t have time to attend meetings, become a ‘Friend of the PTA’ – simply e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
