Parents & Friends


Role of the PFA

Role of our Parents & Friends Association- PFA

Our PFA promotes the welfare of, and provides support to, the school and its community. Parents are key partners in their child’s learning. By interacting with the school and other parents, PFA members can use their skills and experience to work collaboratively with others in supporting the school and its students, and build a sense of community within the school.

The role of a parents’ club is threefold:

  • To provide support, in various forms, for the school, its students and community, including raising funds for the benefit of the school
  • To work in cooperation with the principal, staff and School Advisory Council (SAC) in building effective partnerships between home and school
  • To encourage connection and diversity by getting to know the parents of other children at the school, and to support the operation of the school

Typical activities of a parents’ clubIn performing their role, PFA may undertake a variety of social, cultural, educational or fundraising activities. PFA members, working with the principal, provide invaluable support to the school in a number of ways with the primary motivation of building a sense of community. Such activities may include:

  • Participating in discussion, plans and activities for events such as:
    • Welcoming new students and parents at the school
    • Second-hand uniform schemes
    • Social opportunities such as Father's Day breakfast, Mother's Day high tea
    • School discos
    • Hot food days
    • Sports day barbeques/catering
    • Parent information sessions
  • Raising funds for the school with the prior approval of the school advisory council (for example: installing shade sails, upgrading library books or computers)
