Mrs Larisa Millyard, P&F President, heads the group of friendly parent volunteers who work together to administer the activities of the P&F and organise fundraising events.

The Committee's Role

The Committee plays a very important role in raising funds for specific projects.

Examples of the significant contributions the P&F has made to our school include:

  • Partly funding the construction of the Peace Centre
  • Funding the supply of stage lighting and audiovisual equipment
  • $35,000 donation toward the instrumental music program
  • $5,500 toward our Coding and Digital Technology Clubs
  • The purchase of sports House Team marquees
  • Playground equipment and shade sails through community grants

Annual events coordinated by the P&F include:

  • Junior School Disco
  • Movie Night
  • Trivia Night
  • Mother's Day and Father's Day Gift Stalls
  • The Spring Fair
The Spring Fair

The major fundraising event and the highlight of the school calendar, the Spring Fair is traditionally held early in Term 4, and features live entertainment, amusement rides, stalls, and fireworks, all of which turn the school grounds into a carnival for the day.

While the fundraising aspect of the Fair is important, the P&F Committee believes the Fair is a great "friend-raiser", and a wonderful opportunity for teachers, students, staff, parents, carers and grandparents to work together for the good of the school and its community.

Networking

The P&F meets once per month. These meetings are a great way for members of our school community to network with each other and to find out more about the school and the activities of the P&F, with the opportunity to ask questions and to hear first-hand from the Principal and other staff.

  • President
  • Vice President
