The Parents’ Association (PA) was formed in May 1921 with the aim of supporting the greater school community while also providing an opportunity for parents to be more actively involved. Some 95 years on the aim is still the same, to unite and engage the school community to enhance our boys’ success.
The PA Committee consists of representatives from the Old Boys’ Association, Friends of the Walters Residential Community, the Preparatory School and a School Council nominee.

The PA meets on the second Wednesday of each month during term at 7.00pm in the Council room. All parents are members of the association and are welcomed and encouraged to attend.
Funding is derived annually from parent subscriptions, fees raffle and profits from both the Uniform Shop and Canteen. From these resources the PA is committed to funding projects which will enhance the boys’ experiences at Christ Church while at the same time offering support to the parent body.
The fees raffle tickets are drawn once a term, and the winning family has the equivalent of one term’s Senior School fees credited to their account. Profit from the sold raffle tickets goes to the Parents’ Association and is put towards school projects that benefit the boys.
