A sense of community plays an important role at the R.P. College

Our families are what make our community so special. Guided by the Purpose and Concerns, we strive to create an inclusive and rich experience for all community members.

There are many ways for parents, guardians and carers to become involved in the life of the School if they choose to do so. Their help is always welcome and received with gratitude.

“We understand that student learning is best enhanced through the development of a strong, collaborative learning partnership among all members of the College community. We understand that parents/guardians know their child. Upon enrolling, our families will work with the College to enter into the pursuit of healthy and purposeful relationships to achieve the aims articulated in the Purpose and Concerns.”

Our parent community is strong because of the many people who dedicate their time to organising a range of special events and functions each year. Many of these events provide an excellent opportunity to support fellow parents and the College, showcase our students’ achievements and values in action, and learn more about our heritage.

Parents and Teachers Association

Parents and Teachers Association exists for the formal purposes of fostering the interest of parents in all activities, raising funds and promoting good fellowship between parents, friends, staff and scholars for the well-being of the college.

The Parents and Teachers Association, and a large number of Support Groups operating under its umbrella, conduct social and fundraising functions for the benefit of students and College families. These activities encourage parental interaction, communication and liaison, and work together to build a genuine community.

Some of the major events include the PTA Welcome held at the beginning of each Academic year. In addition to this the PTA hosts a number of parent education nights throughout the year. These nights cover a wide range of topics and feature guest speakers who provide valuable insights that assist parents with understanding some of the challenges faced when raising children in the 21st century.

The association also provides a channel of communication between parents and the school management.
