FOST Committee

The Friends of St Teresa’s (FOST) is a thriving Committee of parents from both the Prep and Senior Schools whose aim is to organise social events throughout the year and to raise funds for both schools.

As a parent of St T’s you are automatically a parent of FOST.

We communicate through our large team of class reps.

  • Summer Colour Run/bbq — for years 7, 8 and 9 where the children run and get sprayed with paint
  • Summer Dance/Festival
  • Burns Night Dance — for years 8 and 9
  • Ghost Tour — for the year 10
  • Ball — for the year 11 and 12

For the Prep we run the very popular:

  • father/daughter Valentine’s Dance
  • Mother’s Day flower bouquet making
  • Easter Egg Hunt
  • Santa Dash at Christmas
