The 2018 Aquinas College Annual Appeal is now underway.

The 2018 Annual Appeal invites contributions for the following College projects:

  1. Chapel Refurbishment (tax-deductible gift to the Building Fund)
  2. Year 12 Common Room (tax-deductible gift to the Building Fund)
  3. Junior School Instrumental Music Program (non-tax-deductible gift to the Development Fund)

Donations can be made by:

All contributions will be formally acknowledged, whilst contributions to the Chapel Refurbishment and the Year 12 Common Room will also receive a tax receipt.

Thank you for your support.  Your participation and generosity makes a real difference in the lives of our boys, today and into the future.

Year 11Dinner showcases etiquette skills

Year 11 students treated their mums to a special dinner at the South of Perth Yacht Club this week.

Part of an etiquette training program, the Year 11 Mothers and Sons Dinner completes a day of training in formal etiquette for the boys.

Mums enjoyed a lovely dinner with their sons and students were able to showcase many refined etiquette skills learnt during the day’s workshops.

Aquinas Farmers Market

The annual Aquinas College Farmers Market will be held to coincide with the Middle and Senior Athletics Carnivals again this year.

This event is a great opportunity for Boarding families to showcase their wares and produce to others in the Aquinas community.

The markets will be held on Memorial Oval on the final day of Term 1, Friday 13th April 2018.

The Boarding Parent Committee is proud to be part of the Aquinas community and is looking forward to sharing its Country Spirit with College families.

Should you wish to order sheep manure, pea straw or fire wood ahead of time, please email:
