St Patrick's College Parents' Association

Support your son by supporting the Parents' Association

The Parents' Association is a group of parents and caregivers which runs two fundraising events each year. You can get involved by joining the Association, or helping with an event. There are many ways to share your time and talent and every contribution large or small helps St Patrick's to provide an even better education and environment for your son. We have fun while we work and helping out is a great way to meet other parents and caregivers.

Supporting the College  

Over the past few years the Parents' Association has raised thousands of dollars to respond to the College's requests and, amongst other things, update all the lockers, add to the iPad stock, buy essential drama, art and science equipment, and provide much-needed resources for the Learning Support Department.  

The annual Big Boys' Breakfast is a much-anticipated St Patrick's Day tradition. Students, with their father/uncle/grandfather or other significant male, start the day's celebrations by enjoying a formal breakfast and listening to inspirational guest speakers.

The biennial Art Auction has garnered a reputation for quality affordable art and a great night out. Local established and upcoming artists exhibit at the auction.

Look out for details of further events later in the year in the weekly updates.

Would you like to join us? 

The Parents' Association meets for one hour in the school staffroom at 7.30pm, usually on the first Monday of each month. No prior experience is required, a wide range of talents are needed and all parents and caregivers are welcome to join us. The Association includes a representative from the teaching staff to help liaise with the College.

Can't make the meetings? Keep an eye on the College weekly updates where we ask for volunteers to help with specific events. We look forward to meeting you.
