The Aquinas College Foundation would like to thank all our families who contributed to the Building Fund throughout 2018.

Your generous, tax­ deductible donations were highly appreciated and have been put to good use, providing funds for the expansion of the College Chapel and the provision of a dedicated common room for our hardworking Year 12 students.

The 2019 Building Fund Appeal is now underway.  Your generosity this year will help facilitate the development of an exciting new Arts Building, which will transform the educational landscape of Aquinas College. More information will be communicated as the project develops over the coming months.

As usual, you can make your annual contribution to the 2019 Building Fund Appeal by ticking the box on your 2019 Fee Statement or by visiting our Online Store and selecting ACF Inc Building Fund from the dropdown menu.

All donations to the Building Fund are allowable tax deductions under the name of ‘Aquinas College Foundation Inc.’ ABN 93 078 219 075, with receipts issued before the end of the financial year.

Thank you for your generosity. Together, we can continue to improve our school for today’s students as well as future generations.

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.

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.
