To continue delivering world-class performance training and rigorous academic education, the College relies on the generosity of donors like you, to augment school fees.

Financial donations

We welcome financial donations from small-medium-sized businesses and individual philanthropists to help meet this goal. All donations over $2 are tax-deductible.

Your donation will go towards initiatives such as

  • improve the physical environment for students (eg, facility renovations, classroom upgrades, playgrounds etc).
  • supplement student support services (eg, wellbeing, diverse learning and after-school activities).
  • augment the purchase of educational resources and equipment to enhance student learning outcomes.
  • grant scholarships to exceptional auditioning applicants; and to retain the highest achieving students.

Contribute in other ways

If you wish to donate your time, which is just as, if not more, valuable, you can join the Parents and Friends Committee. The P&F organise fundraising events and activities that contribute to the improvement and sustainability of the College.

If you can offer a high-value product / service that would be suitable as an auction item or a raffle prize for future fundraising endeavours to gift, please get in touch with
