The Parents’ Association is an enthusiastic group who meet 8 times a year for an hour to discuss ways to support the College, staff, teachers, students and wide range of activities both academic and extra curricular. We fundraise for recognition for students, college needs, sports and arts events and help out with activities such as College fair, Talent Quest and productions. We raise money for end of year Prize giving so that students are praised and rewarded for diligence to study, excellent and outstanding work across all year levels and in all subjects. Our aim is to offer financial help and support in investing in learning, scholarships money and information. Do join us at any event or meeting. Please contact Adele Cherrill PA Chair 904 3665 or 021973665 for further details.
