MTM19.8The Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA) are a group of dedicated parents and friends of the school who donate their time to support the school. Parent participation aims to enrich the school community through the social events we hold. The parents you see serving drinks at events are PTFA members, and you are warmly welcomed by them again at other significant events as your daughter progresses through St Mary's College.

Community and fundraising goals

We promote and provide opportunities for families to form a close community. We have fundraising goals, but the planning and preparation of these has a strong focus on community-building. The PTFA are a social bunch, so events are fun, well-organised and rewarding. Opportunities to meet other families, students and staff are especially important for a college. Students become more independent when they reach Year 7 and there isn’t the same access to classrooms and teachers. PTFA events are a great opportunity to develop connections.

We need your support in 2021

We welcome all parents to join us and lend support. You can be involved as much or as little as you like. It's a great way of getting to know the school and other parents, please click here to check out our flyer or please This email address is being protected from spambots.
