The Trust, which is a separate statutory legal body to the school, was formed in 1985 and from its small beginnings; through to the Prep Beyond 2000 project, it continues to raise funds through pledges, donations and various fundraising activities. It currently owns 5 properties in close proximity to the school, including the Reception Unit and Preppy’s Place Aftercare Centre. Between 2010 and 2016 all five sections of the annexure to Lothian Court were purchased and the School’s Music Centre and the DPHS Association office are now accommodated in two of these. The School and Trust have developed a strong bond over the years, and the latter has played an integral part in the development of the school.  I have confidence that this school with its experienced teacher body together with the commitment and support of the parent body will continue to deliver quality education long into the future.
