Friends of Helena College

In 2021, our two campus Parents and Friends (P&F) committees voted on merging to become to align with the College’s strategic ‘One School’ objective. The amalgamated P&Fs are combining into a new structure, provisionally called the ‘Friends of Helena College’.

The focus of the ‘Friends of Helena College’ is to build community links across both campuses, through organizing activities for the community – this will  include guest speaker evenings, dances, parent socials and family-friendly events. In addition, the Friends group will  undertake fundraising activities, on a project-by-project basis. Past events, some of which will continue to run, have included:

  • Bush Dance
  • School Disco
  • Sausage sizzles at athletics and swimming carnivals
  • Lapathon
  • World Teachers Day
  • Star Gazing Night
  • Sci-Tech Evening
  • Cancer Council Biggest Morning Tea
  • Christmas Activities.

It is a wonderful way to contribute to the life of the College, to the benefit of our students. For more information, or to express interesting in joining the Friends of Helena College, please email

The Friends of Helena College represents parents and carers in their support of the College, supporting a sense of belonging and connectedness between parents, students and staff, and providing a forum for ideas and discussions on relevant parenting issues. Anyone with a child enrolled is automatically a member of the association.

Volunteering opportunities include giving support and lending a hand at College events throughout the year, helping run the Second Hand Uniform Shop at Glen Forrest Campus and more. We are always looking for more helpers.

Second Hand Uniforms

Families may choose to buy and sell uniforms, uniform items and textbooks online through the Sustainable School Shop.  The  P&F funds the College’s subscription to this service.
The Second Hand Uniform Shop, also coordinated by the P&F, is located at Glen Forrest Campus also has a range of good quality pre-loved College and sports uniforms, bags, textbooks, calculators and more.

School TV

The P&F has a subscription to SchoolTV, a digital content platform for parents and families with videos and other resources on issues such as cyber-bullying, anxiety, depression, self-harm, drug and alcohol use.
