Parent Network News

We need your help please!

The De La Salle Parent Network, with the support of our broader community, will be holding its major fundraising event for the year — A Day at the Races — at the Caulfield Racecourse, Saturday 19 August 2017. The event provides an excellent opportunity to get involved, meet other parents and play a key role in building a strong school community.

If you are able to spare some time to approach retail outlets/shops and businesses in your local area, to source donations of products, services and vouchers for the A Day at the Races online auction, we would love to hear from you via email: The network will provide you with a letter of introduction to use when requesting donations.

If you are interested in donating to the online auction (hosted by we would love to hear from you! Products, services and vouchers you, your business or your broader network may be willing to donate will be gratefully received. Donations will be acknowledged to the College community. If you are able to assist, please email:

Our fundraising efforts this year will be focused on the attainment of a 3D CNC (Computer Numerical Control) routing machine for use in Technology and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) based subjects. This will be a wonderful resource for our students! If you are wondering what on earth a 3D CNC is — here is a short video of the amazing machine in action.

Thank you in anticipation of your support.
