SCAS Parents and Friends
The St Columba Anglican School Parents and Friends Association offers members of the SCAS community the opportunity to develop friendships within the school community and to participate in and contribute to the life of the school.
Community spirit is greatly valued at St Columba – much of this community spirit is attributable to the volunteers who work for the school through the P&F Association. The P&F also enhance the school’s facilities and resources by generating funds to assist in their purchase.
Each year at our Graduation ceremony our departing Year 12s are issued with a “St Columba Old Scholars’ Association” (SCOSA) badge as a symbol of our desire to have an ongoing connection with our graduates.
Past students play an important role in the School community. They can offer valuable support, advice and assistance, and as mentors can provide current students with advice as they share their experiences of the world. We have been fortunate to have had several former students complete teaching practicums with us, complete traineeships with us and even work for us.
Our teaching staff offer assistance with general learning, English, Mathematics and Science. Students can receive assistance with revision of their class work, homework or with their upcoming assessment tasks. The program is designed to foster and develop an independent work ethic in students.
