Junior School Christmas Appeal

Junior School students aim to provide many families with a brighter Christmas period this year by collecting hamper items and donating them to the St Vincent de Paul Christmas Appeal.

Students will be collecting items from Monday 5th until Friday 23rd November. Suggested non-perishable donations include; snack foods, Christmas cakes, puddings, fruit mince pies, tins of biscuits, chocolates, lollies and soft drinks.

The donations will be collected from classrooms throughout the weeks and placed under the Christmas tree in the Junior School Library so students can see how much has been collected to help others.

Foundation news launched this week

The Aquinas College Foundation has launched its newsletter this week which aims to provide community members with information about projects at the College, events and insight into the Foundation’s work for students at Aquinas.

The inaugural annual publication features an article about Old Aquinian Jonas Aranda (’13) who was the recipient of the Terry Bourke Scholarship whilst studying at Aquinas. His story of his time at the College and what he is up to now at Harvard University is inspiring.

Also read about the members of the Aquinas College Foundation and find information on how to support the Foundation fund its many projects and initiatives.

Class of ’17 gives gift of education

Aquinas College is proud to announce the Class of 2017’s ground breaking gift to Aquinas – the gift of an Aquinas College education.

Until now, it has been customary for our leaving class to raise funds for a parting gift to the College, resulting in many wonderful gifts over the years.  The Class of 2017, however, will be the first class to provide the gift of an Aquinas College education for another boy, putting our core value ‘Service with Generosity’ into action and starting a fantastic new tradition at the College.

Working with the Foundation, the Class of 2017 Scholarship will provide a half-scholarship for a student to attend Aquinas College in Years 11 and 12, commencing in 2018. Participation is voluntary, but students are asked to consider a contribution of $50 this year. Families who would like to contribute more are welcome to do so.

Following graduation, the Aquinas College Foundation will write to each student and his family – in 2018 and again in 2019 – encouraging them to contribute a further $50 to cover the two-year half-scholarship, resulting in a total contribution of $150 over three years.

A plaque commemorating the Class of 2017 Scholarship will be hung in a prominent location on the College grounds and will take pride of place as the first of many Year 12 Scholarship gifts.

Contributions to the Class of 2017 Scholarship can be made by visiting the Online Store and selecting Class of 2017 Scholarship from the dropdown menu, or by completing the Contribution Form and returning it by post to Aquinas College, Locked Bag 11, Bentley Delivery Centre, Bentley WA 6983 or by email to foundation@aquinas.wa.edu.au.

By contributing to the Class of 2017 Scholarship you will change a life, whilst leaving a legacy that fulfills the core values of Aquinas College.

Thank you for your support.
