Give to PC

Many of us have either been given or been able to give our daughters the gift of a Perth College education. This gift has allowed girls to experience and embrace a wonderful array of opportunities and provide a strong foundation for future careers and life experiences. The sense of community is very strong at Perth College and is characterised by generosity and diversity. Over the years, girls from a wide variety of backgrounds, across the city and country, have benefited from the PC experience. In some cases these students have only been able to attend due to the generosity of others and our scholarship programme. 

  • 2017 Giving Programme

    We have our past families to thank for the facilities the School has today and it is their foresight which has enabled the School to offer an abundance of opportunities for our students to explore, experience and learn.  The Foundation recognises that we need to build on the past in order to remain relevant and at the forefront of education, which prepares our students for an ever-changing society.  Our 2017 Giving Programme provides you with the opportunity to be part of those plans.
    The Foundation will refocus its fundraising efforts over the next several years to grow the Building Fund and has committed the 2016 Annual Giving and 2017 donations to this fund for the fit-out of the new Senior Learning and Leadership Centre.
    The new building has been designed with the needs of a modern education in mind; in particular, it will enable the best delivery of the curriculum and respond to contemporary directions in education and leadership development.
    Importantly, the new building includes the Boarders’ Dining Room so our boarders will no longer be required to cross Lawley Crescent, improving both convenience and safety. Parking around the School has always been a challenge and the architects have been able to provide parking spaces underneath the building, therefore enhancing traffic flow around the facility.
    Your donation, however large or small, will have a positive impact on our students now and into the future.
