Oprah Winfrey says: “The essential question is not, “How busy are you?” but “What are you busy at?”  And that pretty much sums up the friendly band of parents who work behind the scenes to support Villa Maria College.


Building the Villa community – Our aim is to build a community feeling among parents by organising opportunities for us to get together.  It’s often hard to feel connected to your child’s school once they hit these teenage years.  We’d love to break down those barriers and create a community of committed Villa parents.


Fundraising – We don’t set ridiculous targets and we’re always seeking ways to fundraise smarter not harder – we know how busy every parent is!  We fundraise for specific things that will directly impact the girls’ educational experiences.

Funding Success

The PTA has helped Villa pay for:

  • Five sunscreen dispensers located around the College for students to use
