SUPPORTING The Old Kobeelyans’ Association

Since the closing of Penrhos Kobeelya in 1986, The Old Kobeelyans’ Association focus is unique in that we no longer support girls and families attending Kobeelya in Katanning.  However, the Association is proud of the significant financial support former students and staff have made to the former school, local and wider community. This generosity has enabled the Old Kobeelyans’ Association to continue supporting events and activities without an annual cohort joining our Association.

Every gift, however big or small, makes a difference to the projects we are currently supporting.

These projects include

  • the upkeep and maintenance of St Michael of All Angels’ Chapel and the Coachhouse buildings which the Association leases from the Katanning Baptist Church.
  • the purchase of archival storage materials to preserve the memorabilia stored and on display in the Coachhouse Museum.
  • The replacement of aged lighting in the Coachhouse and Chapel.
  • The renovation of the unique shelter that houses the bell in the Kobeelya grounds.

You can show your support by making a donation to one of the projects. Please be in contact with us.

Please note that donations of $2.00 or more are tax-deductible and a tax receipt will be issued.
