Parents & Friends Association

Would you like to become more involved in our wonderful school community?

Parents of St Virgil's are invited to take an active role in the life of the College. We understand that everyone has different demands on their time and contributions to make, and we greatly appreciate your help wherever you can.

An energetic and effective Parents & Friends Association operates on each campus. As well as raising funds to support the work of the College, they organise social activities for parents and convene forums relevant to the education of boys.

The Parents & Friends Association host various social and fundraising events during the year. Proceeds go directly towards supporting students and project initiatives including facilities and equipment.

The Association meets via two groups for Austins Ferry and the Junior School. 

The committees are involved in planning and organising multiple initiatives including the Easter Raffle, Quiz Night, Mother’s Day Stall, Mary Rice Day, Teachers’ Dinners, Gala Auction and College Fair.

Families are encouraged to be involved in the P&F activities as a way of supporting the College and students, meeting other community members and most importantly, having fun!
