ST. Thomas's School 校園一景
為了籌措學校經費，校方和家長教師聯合協會(PTA-Parents & Teachers Association)每年都費盡心思地辦一些籌款活動，如一年一度的學校野餐(School Picnic)、二手書籍和玩具義賣會(今年STT在六月六日舉行)、猜謎之夜(Quiz Night)、舞會(School Disco)等，A-THON則是絕對會出現在學校行事曆上。PTA結算所有活動募集的款項，扣掉必要開支後再交由校方運用。校方多半將經費用在改善教學設備上。譬如去年更新的低年級遊樂區(Junior Playground)就是全校師生一起努力募到五萬紐幣的成果。
今年DD學年(Year 7 & 8)的Athon和書有關，以下就是謎題。
