Meet our Community

St Hilda’s School is made up of a strong community of not only wonderfully engaged students and staff but also enthusiastic parents, grandparents, friends and alumni, who give generously of their time and resources to support a wide range of school projects. It is a pleasure to introduce to you some of those community members who are active in formal Support Groups and to invite you to join a group of interest.

Women’s Auxiliary

St Hilda’s Women’s Auxiliary 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. In 2019, the WA funded $55k towards the Junior School Library refurbishment and in 2020 the WA have funded 80 new net balls, cricket pitch sets and volley ball nets to start the year off! Thank you WA!

The Aquatics Club is open to swimmers of all ages and levels. St Hilda’s students, family, friends and members of the Gold Coast community are invited to join the club. Aims and Objectives of the Club:

  • To provide a positive environment where swimmers produce their best possible swimming, whether it be a personal best time or reaching State and National levels
  • To provide dedicated coaches to support your child’s dreams, goals and desires
  • To help develop each swimmer’s values and character
  • Teaching of stroke technique and race strategies, the foundation on which our program is based
  • Individual attention within a team environment

Club Nights

Club Nights are informal, fortnightly events which enable swimmers to assess their own progress, practise under race conditions and attempt new events in a familiar situation. The events are seeded from slowest to fastest and swimmers will be racing against others of similar ability. Coaches attend Club Nights and provide swimmers with encouragement and feedback on their performance. Club Nights are an ideal introduction to competition and an opportunity to meet other club members.
