The Foundation provides the link between the College and current parents, alumni and our community of supporters. Its focus is on building supportive community networks and fund raising for further development of the College and facilities. The Foundation also provides support for our Old Collegians, developing the College Archives.
The Foundation builds the community of support around the College through the St John’s Business Breakfast Series, Past Parents Reunions and a Fundraising Gala Dinner.

St John’s Foundation Gala Dinner 2017
The St John’s Foundation once again hosted its annual Gala Dinner on Saturday 9 September in style! Now in its second year, the new Performing Arts Centre Foyer was transformed providing the perfect setting for this Gala Dinner event. Guests were welcomed by red carpet and luxury BMW’s supplied by sponsor Westside BMW. College parents Anil and Malvika Kamath were the lucky winners of the Westside BMW chauffeur pick up to and from the dinner!
TV personality Jillian Whiting performed her Master of Ceremonies duties beautifully on the night with Swing Central Jazz Band providing the main entertainment on the night with Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra classics. One of the highlights of the evening was the live auction and raffle prizes delivered by St John’s own Russell Morgan, Director of Performing Arts. A private dining experience for 10 guests, a helicopter trip to Sirromet winery and a weekend at a Peppers Resort were up for grabs on the night. After a bidding war during the auction, the prizes were secured by some very happy guests! We would like to take the opportunity to thank the following sponsors.
The dance floor was the place to be at the end of the night with a DJ providing the music for what was a very successful evening.

Planned facilities development is outlined in the Built Environment Plan.
College fees pay for College operations and very minor capital works. Major facilities development requires the financial support of parents and members of the wider community. The College Foundation Board invites all members of the College community to support the future development of educational facilities for our children and to leave a legacy for future generations.
Our current project is the Performing Arts Centre of Excellence Stage 2.
To view a display of photos which showcase the development of Stage 2 over the last three months of construction please click here.
