The Australian spirit has long been known to be one of generosity, service, support and mateship. In the tradition of these enduring Values, as a College community all members can help A.B. Paterson College mature and develop the College’s Mission – To challenge the individual to achieve and act with purpose and character – and, in so doing, model and exemplify philanthropic values and the essence of the Australian spirit.
The act of giving to others – be it our time, our skills and talents, or our financial support – is the essence of the generosity and service to others defined by our heritage, and the countless men and women who have given their life in the service of others. It is this spirit of giving that our College wishes to instil in our students as we prepare the next generation of young people about to take their place in society.
How can you make a difference?
There are many ways in which you can contribute to our community. Many people give of their time to assist teachers in reading programs; assist in coaching sports teams; provide specialist advice to staff and sporting teams on matters of skill development and nutrition; or, act within our curriculum as mentors and advisors to students.
Other people assist by enabling us to continue to provide and develop creative learning spaces to motivate, inspire and educate our students through tax deductible donations to our Building and Scholarship Funds.
Our College does much to help people in genuine need, but we cannot do this alone.
There is currently a unique and one-off opportunity to make a difference and to have your name recognised by future generations as a special donor to our College.
The following document details a way in which you may be able to make a significant difference in the life of a child, and do so with a tax deductible benefit. Please note that a formal receipt will be issued in a number of weeks, in addition to the immediate email confirmation of your donation, should you choose to support our students.
We value the giving of your time, your knowledge, skills or financial support to enrich the lives of our students and build a strong future for all. Please contact the Principal on 5594 7947, if you wish to discuss any aspect of giving.
