2017 Annual Giving Appeal

Thank you to the past, present and even future community members who have already generously supported the Aquinas College Foundation Inc. 2017 Annual Giving Appeal.

Your tax-deductible gifts are highly valued and a tax receipt and thank you has been issued to acknowledge your generosity.

As we head into the second half of 2017, I would like to remind families that it is still possible to contribute to the 2017 Appeal, with a tax receipt issuing for the 2018 financial year.

Aquinas College depends on the generosity of the entire Aquinas community to help realise its commitment to providing a vibrant learning environment that motivates our boys to define and develop their unique talents.  The 2017 Annual Giving Appeal is your opportunity to make a personal contribution to a legacy that will not only serve the students of today but the generations of tomorrow.

The 2017 Annual Giving Appeal provides you with the flexibility to contribute to either the Aquinas College Foundation Building Fund – for the maintenance and upgrade of our buildings and facilities – or the Scholarship Program – providing more opportunities for boys to access an Aquinas education. All contributions to the Appeal are fully tax deductible, with a formal thank you and receipt issued.

Tax deductible donations can be made by:

Please join me, and the Aquinas College Foundation, in making a donation to the 2017 Annual Giving Appeal.  Your participation and generosity makes a real difference to the life of our College.

Boarding Orientation

Aquinas Connect boarding orientation

Aquinas Connect aims to make the transition to boarding school easier for the College’s Year 7 boarding students by engaging the boys in activities together in the year prior to starting boarding.

The boys participate in programs and social catch-ups online and at the College.

The 2018 cohort spent time at the school recently going through their orientation for next year and learning about areas/subjects offered at the College – including the Design and Technology facilities, Br Paull Centre, learning about digital technologies and also taking time out to play a game of footy alongside Memorial Oval.

Senior Music Night

Senior School musicians put on a spectacular show at this year’s Senior School Music Night this week.

Students dazzled the audience with their talents.

The AC/PC Concert Band also performed – trilling and drum rolling their way through two pieces which highlighted the great sense of musicality of students in the band. Aquinas students performed an array of numbers in solos, choirs, ensembles, barbershop groups and many more.

The event was a great success and portrayed the dedication, talent and skill of students studying music at the College.

Thank you to all staff, students and parents who helped to organise the event and those who assisted on the night.
