Parents & Friends Association (PFA)


All members of the school community are most welcome to join the Parents & Friends Association (PFA). The PFA aims to be of service to the whole school community through social and fundraising activities with emphasis on ultimate benefits to the children. The PFA will also act as a platform for any issues that parents wish to be raised and discussed. We are members of Parents Victoria.

 

To join the PFA, please print this form, fill it in and return it to the school with your $2 fee. Your membership lasts as long as you have children at the school.

 

Meetings and activities are advised through the school newsletter. We have found our PFA works best with a large committee. The PFA comprises of office bearers, committee members and members. Office bearers are elected, the remainder of committee being co-opted. There is no limit on numbers and ideally the PFA would love to see all members becoming involved. Past experience has shown new ideas as well as many willing hands make a successful club.

 

We raise funds for extra resources for the school and to support school community activities. In 2015 we raised more than $60,000. The PFA make recommendations to the School Council regarding fundraising activities, events and expenditure.
