Members elected to executive positions for 2016 are:

  • President – Melissa Fahl
  • Secretary – Jane Gosper
  • Treasurer – Therese Mattes

Please feel free to forward any thoughts, ideas or correspondence to the P & F’s email address parentsandfriends@hsc.qld.edu.au .  We welcome your input through e-mail and hope this will become a valuable way to communicate with the P & F when unable to attend a meeting.  If you require further information call the College Office on 4969 2600.  For further information on roles of  P&F Associations and parent support visit The Federation of Parents and Friends Associations of Catholic Schools in QLD website www.pandf.org.au .

P & F Association Financial Support for Advanced Student Sporting & Cultural Achievement

As a means of encouraging and supporting student achievement, the P & F Association provides some financial assistance to students who are selected to compete at progressively higher levels in sporting or cultural competitions within the Mackay district and indeed to represent the College in other ways.  To qualify for support, the student must have been selected through the College pathway, for example, through Capricornia Secondary School Sport or through a schools-based competition such as Optiminds.  Differing levels of financial support are offered for representation at Regional, State, and National competitions.  Application forms are available from the College Finance Office and need to be submitted to the Principal, within the current year in which the student was selected and actually competed.
