The P&C run a second hand uniform shop in the grounds of the school in Vera’s Cottage. The shop is run by volunteers, and is open on the second Tuesday of the month between 10.30 am and 12.

The Parents and Citizens (P&C) comprise members of the school community, predominantly parents of students at the school who support, advise and work collaboratively with the school in the best interests of the education of students at Tech. The P&C jointly develops the strategic directions of the school, advocate for public education and participate in panels, celebrations and partner the school in improving student learning outcomes.

The P&C committee led by the President meet on the first Tuesday of the month in term time, and all parents are encouraged to attend. 

A number of important events are organised by the P&C. These include guest speakers on topics of relevance and interest to parents, and an annual joint P&C meeting with sister school, St George Girls High School.

The P&C support the school financially in numerous ways and provide additional resourcing for items such as technology; textbooks; gym and canteen equipment, and other items as requested by the school. The P&C is not a fundraising body in part due to the complexity of school enrolment and the fact that many students travel large distances to the school. Instead, the P&C have an annual standard levy which all parents are encouraged to pay.

The P&C welcome Year 7 students to the school in Term 1 with a BBQ which is very well attended.

The school has the most complete archive of alumni and aviator Sir Charles Kingsford Smith in Australia.

The school archive comprises documents; photographs and artefacts relating to the founding of the school in 1911 and its history.

The school spans three educational sites; Ultimo; Paddington and Bexley, and information relating to alumni, past teachers and the life of the school can be readily found in the archives.

Members of the public and ex students wishing to access material in the school archive may contact the school to make an appointment on 9587 5899 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Reading can be a solitary activity for those of us who love to read.  The Book Club provides students from Years 7-11 with an opportunity to meet regularly with like-minded avid readers and discuss their reading.

Students select books, and recommend books to each other, which are appealing and challenging, widening their exposure to different genres and authors.  Rewards for students include points towards the Wykeham award and merit certificates.
