“We help out at school events, run the Second-hand Uniform Shop, host fundraising events, and provide a forum for the parent voice. Many of our members enjoy being part of the PTA as they get to meet new people, find out about what is happening at the College across all year levels and have the opportunity to contribute.”

The St Andrew’s College Parent-Teacher Association promotes and nurtures friendships within the school community and provides parents with a forum for discussion and an avenue for participation in College activities.

The PTA assists with school events and runs several fundraising projects to support selected activities in the school, including operating the Second-hand Uniform Shop. The monthly PTA meetings are the best place to get the newest information about what is going on in the Preparatory School and the Secondary School, and is also a good place for general questions and discussions.

PTA History

In 1933 Mr A L Cropp presided over the inaugural meeting. The PTA have a long history of working with other community groups in support of the College. In 1943 they joined forces with the Old Boys Association to support the build of a Memorial Chapel and in 1950 assisted in building the boarders’ recreational hall. They were involved with the build of the Pipe Band room (1957) and Jubilee Hall (1966). In 1999 they completely restructured their constitution to make a more inclusive, issue-focused and thought provoking forum.

PTA Today

The PTA has donated more than $500,000 to the College in the past few years, most recently contributing $55,000 for the new Gough Family Theatre and equipment. The donations go towards all aspects of the College, with cultural, sports and academic sectors from Years 1–13 benefiting from the PTA. The PTA is not all about fundraising as the majority of their funds come from the Second-hand Uniform Shop. It takes a community to raise a family and the PTA aids in supporting College events with volunteers to ensure students get the best possible experience at every occasion.
