Parents & Friends Group

The Parents and Friends (P&F) group enables parents who would like to contribute more to the school but can not afford to take on the level of commitment required for the Governing Council (GC), to do so. The primary aim of the P&F group is to:

  • establish, prepare and coordinate fund raising activities both within and outside of your school community, and
  • raise awareness about your school and educational vision at public events.

The P&F group is less formal than the GC and meetings occur as and when they are needed, with at least one gathering each term. There are many regular school events and fund raising activities that occur during the year, however the P&F group are always seeking out new ideas such as funding grants and publicity opportunities. Each member is free to use their imagination and ingenuity, and a very flexible yet coordinated approach is taken by the P&F group in helping to sustain your school.
