First Meeting

PA Fundraising Levy
You will all by now have received information from Principal Robert Brennan regarding the $30.00 amount in lieu of fundraising.
The College has endorsed a recommendation from the Salesian College Parents’ Association to introduce a fundraising levy of $30.00, replacing a number of fundraising events and initiatives normally held over the year. In the past these have included the $20.00 Raffle fee, Annual Chocolate Drive, Trivia Night, amongst others. The change has been initiated to streamline fundraising for all families and to reduce the workload on the small number of parents actively involved on the Parents Association Committee, allowing them to focus on the community aspect of their role.
You can keep up to date with all news at the college by simply going onto the Salesian Live web site.  All PA information can be found under the Parents tab.
