St. Columba’s College has an active Parents’ Association that organizes a wide range of events throughout the academic year.
The Parents’ Association helps to ensure that all parents feel part of the College community through the organization of formal and informal events throughout the school year. Parents are automatically members of the Parents’ Association and are encouraged to become actively involved in the Committee, which represents the interests of students.
The Association is involved in many areas of school life and key roles include :
- Social events which include a New Parents Welcome Cocktail party,
Parent Coffee mornings, Parent luncheon and barbeque
- Donations to school initiatives to enhance students experiences
- Running and stocking the Second Hand Uniform Shop
- Inviting Guest speakers to address parents on topical interests of relevance to general health and well being of students
