It is a pleasure to introduce to you some of those community members who are active in formal volunteer groups and to invite you to join a group of interest.

Women's Auxiliary

St Hilda’s Women’s Auxiliary (WA) provides a social contact for all mothers within our school community. It is an opportunity for mothers to meet a number of staff and establish friendships across all year levels.

The WA hosts a number of fantastic, fun events throughout the year which generate funds which are reinvested back into the School. The WA sponsors the Fireworks at the Christmas Carols and their High Tea and Mother Daughter luncheon continue to be favourites in our social calendar of events.

The second-hand uniform shop is run by the WA, the quality, value and sustainability makes everyone appreciative!
