The aim of the St James College Parents & Friends’ Association is to foster a spirit of union and a sense of belonging. St James College is fortunate to receive practical and financial support by a number of fundraising and social activities organised by the Parents and Friends. All parents are most welcome to participate.

The Parents and Friends provide support to the College in a number of ways:
• Provide a forum for the parents to discuss aspects of their sons’ education
• Organise social functions for parents and families
