SCC PTA - is a group of parents who come together twice a term to organise and plan how we can support the college in order to benefit the students. We organise fundraising events, support events at the college like hospitality at the O'Shea Shield 2018, prize-giving, orientation evenings and parent-teacher interviews.
The funds we raise have contributed to the purchase of the school van, a 4,000L emergency water tank, community gardens and new chrome books. We have raised funds through small enterprises such as Christmas treats, Easter hot cross buns, cake stalls, pine cone sales and tuck shop food sales.
“Joining the St Catherine's College PTA has been the best thing I could do to get involved in my daughter's school. I've met parents and teachers and I am contributing to the college community.” SCC parent
“We’ve loved being involved with the community of parents at SCC. For us, it’s been wonderful to get to know the parents and caregivers of the girls our daughters are going through college with. We’re all in it together – we want the best for our daughters, we want our school community to be well connected and thrive and we want the school to be well resourced. All of these come together in the PTA.” Lucy Wooles and Vanessa Young Co-Chairs PTA 2018

We currently meet on a Thursday from 6pm for one hour in the staffroom and any parent is welcome to attend any PTA meeting. We are grateful to our Principal Steve Bryan who attends all of our meetings and provides an update from the school each time.
The PTA is a great way to be involved in the college - meeting other parents and getting to know the teachers is a great way to enhance the overall feeling of belonging to our beautiful college community.
