Along with maintaining the Coach House and the heritage listed St. Michael and All Angels chapel, the Association donates annually to the following to recognise excellence in education.

  • Penrhos College Visual Arts awards – Year 12 Photography, Media and Visual Arts
  • Katanning Primary School Year 6 Visual Arts award
  • Braeside Primary School Year 6 Positive Peer ward
  • Penrhos College – the Mrs Wendy Norrish Year 12 French award

From our love of horses, the Association supports the Egypt Equine Aid based in Cairo, Egypt. This registered Australian charity operates a free equine veterinary clinic for local working animals, specifically horses and donkeys.

The current projects being carried out by the Association are:

  • Restoring the bell cover over the school bell built by Headmaster Mr Cooper in 1972 (see image on the right).  The bell renovations still ongoing.  Rusted areas removed, almost ready to be spray painted. (October 2021)
  • Upgrading the lighting in St. Michael and All Angels chapel
  • Upgrading the lighting in the Coach House Museum. Latest news – final nine fluro lights installed  in September 2021.

We invite you to consider giving to these projects. Donations of any amount are appreciated, as every donation will assist us in reaching our goals.

All donations of more than $2 are fully tax-deductible.

To donate, visit our online giving page or contact our treasurer, Gwen Owen by sending an email to okatreasurer@kobeelya.com.
