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.
In the last year the PTA have helped Villa pay for:
The school swimming pool upgrade
Curtains for the Hall
Year 8 Graduation party
Year 13 Common Room gear
Centenary History Book project
Last Hurrah student event to celebrate end of year
Contribution to student welfare needs
The PTA meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm in the College meeting room; or if you’d prefer to skip the meetings but still want to help on occasion, – become a Friend of the PTA.
