Parents & Friends Association

Parents are invited to take an active role in the life of the College.

An energetic and effective Parents and Friends Association operates on each campus. As well as raising funds to support the work of the College - they organise social activities for parents and convene forums relevant to the education of boys.

The Parents and Friends Association host various social and fundraising events during the year. Proceeds go directly towards supporting students and project initiatives including facilities and equipment


The Association meets via two groups:

  • Austins Ferry (senior school parents) at Austins Ferry,
  • Junior School (junior school parents) at the Junior School. 

Dates for both groups are on the College calendar.

The committees are involved in planning and organising multiple initiatives including the Easter Raffle, Quiz Night, Mother’s Day Stall, Mary Rice Day, Teachers’ Dinners, Gala Auction and College Fair.

Parents and friends are encouraged to be involved in Parents & Friends activities as a way of supporting the College and students, meeting other community members and most importantly, having fun!
