This group of tireless workers has been in operation since the inception of the college and over the years have made significant contributions to college resources and to the welfare of our students. They offer social contacts as well as involvement in important aspects of college life.
The Mazenod Fathers’ Association is a wonderful opportunity for fathers to support the college and strengthens the relationships between the college, parents, and students. We believe parent support is vital and are invited to become active members of the Fathers’ Association.
The Fathers’ Association runs various social functions throughout the year to help raise funds for college facilities and to build a sense of community and support amongst the college parents. Each family is encouraged to become involved as participation gives parents a practical and valuable role in the education of their sons and in the advancement of Mazenod College. The Fathers’ committee meets on the third Tuesday of each month during the term.
Parents are also invited to undertake various courses at the college. These currently include fitness groups, woodwork classes, and parenting seminars. Throughout the year, a number of social and fundraising functions are organised (a major raffle, wine bottling, and so on) and all parents are encouraged to support these efforts.
