The DC Parent Teacher Association works to support and enrich the school life of students, parents and teachers at Discovery College.
Leading and organising fundraising events such as Family Fun Day helps to fund various activities for the school community. Recent initiatives that the DCPTA has supported include Wellness Webinars, enhancing the Sand & Water play area for primary and inviting Jurassic Garage to showcase various reptiles to both primary and secondary students.
The DC PTA Shop space within the school will undergo a transformation over the coming months as we are no longer selling uniforms or stationery. The redesign will be a welcoming space for parents, and we are excited about these upcoming changes.
We invite all parents to be active members of the DCPTA. Whether you can provide a small amount of time to one project or more time throughout the year, any contribution is welcomed and greatly appreciated. To contact the DCPTA, please email email@example.com or phone 3969 1069.

Why do all DC families pay PTA fees and how are they used?
Under the ESF (English Schools Foundation) Ordinance every family with children at an ESF school or PIS (Private Independent School) must pay an annual PTA fee and is therefore a member of their school’s PTA. At DC every family pays an annual DCPTA fee of $300 per family. This fee is the DCPTA’s only guaranteed income and we rely on it to ensure we can fund our annual fixed costs. These costs include the salaries of the DCPTA Shop administrators and bus administrator, insurance and other costs associated with running a shop to provide uniform and stationery sales on campus at Discovery College.
