Father's Day funds fiesta

​The P&F gave $200,000 for RPAC at the breakfast for our fathers and daughters.

 A gigantic cheque of $200,000 was given by the P&F to the St Catherine’s Foundation at the P&F Father’s Day breakfast. Nearly 300 dads and daughters were there to see P&F President Mrs Louise Campbell and P&F Treasurer Mr Darren Collins present the cheque to Foundation Chairman Mr Peter Boxall AO and Foundation Deputy Chair Mr Vince Muriti.

The large amount on the huge cheque reflected the success of the P&F Magnolia Fair held in May 2014. The money will be donated to support our future research, performing arts and aquatic centre known as RPAC, which will incorporate a multi-function centre.

It was wonderful to see so many fathers obviously proud to be having breakfast with their daughters. With variable spring weather in Sydney the event was moved indoors where coffee, hot chocolate and breakfast muffins were served to start the day.

The well organised and attended event was an excellent opportunity for our fathers to catch up with their daughter’s friends and their dads. The strength of the St Catherine’s family, the P&F and the Foundation is reinforced at these whole school events. What a lovely time for the girls and their dads to spend together!
