St. PATRICK’S DAY – 17th MARCH: A BIG DAY AT PCA!
St. Patrick’s Day is a special day for PCA and is celebrated by Staff and Students each year on the 17th of March. Everybody joins in the fun by wearing Green and a lunch or dinner outing is organised by the Student Association.

MELBOURNE CUP
Just like the rest of the Nation, we stop each year at PCA to watch the Melbourne Cup! Students are encouraged to dress up for the ‘Best-Dressed’ competition with Gents and Ladies categories held on the day.

Community Involvement
Students are encouraged to give back to the community by holding fundraising activities for causes close to their hearts at the Academy. Previous initiatives have raised funds for the Red Kite Foundation and the RSPCA.

Business Administration students are also encouraged to complete work placement at Not for Profit social services organisations.

Student Clubs
Student Association: Keen students are encouraged to come together to plan social events and fundraising inititatives at PCA (including St Patrick’s Day).

CESA
PCA is also an Approved Assessment Centre of the Commercial Education Society of Australia (CESA). Interested students are encouraged to complement their training at PCA by completing the independent professional practice examinations offered by CESA. Annual Membership of the Society is encouraged for professional development.
