The school enjoys a good relationship with the community, and has established a parent partnership program for Years 7-10.  The aim of the partnership is to strengthen the home school relationship and encourage student wellbeing. Parents join the senior executive once a term for breakfast and discussion on issues of mutual educational interest. Topics discussed are often related to our student wellbeing program, which is age specific, and various guest speakers are invited, and have included The Australian Federal Police talking on cyber safety, and staff speaking on their areas of expertise, as well as seminars on mental health issues; adolescent development; gaming and gifted and talented education. Parent input into potential seminar topics ensure the relevance and utility of the program.

The school is fortunate to have a school run canteen, and all profits from the canteen are returned to the school. The canteen is run by a paid manager, with the help of community volunteers. At the start of every year the canteen invites parents to volunteer their time. Their contribution to the school is very much appreciated.

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.
