Parents and Friends

​The P & F Association is an integral part of the school community representing all the parents of the school and sharing responsibility for the school with the principal and teachers.
 
The P & F Association provides opportunity for parents of each school to assemble, usually with the principal and teachers of the school, in order to ensure that everything necessary is being done for the school and its community and in particular the students. Similar to other interest groups, parents or friends and teachers meet formally and regularly to assist one another and contribute significantly to the life and welfare of the school.
 
All parents of children attending the school are part of the parent body. The P & F provides the formal structure necessary in any school community to ensure effective organisation and action.
 
In addition to being a school-based organisation for parents, the P &F also has a diocesan, state and a national network. Such a network gives the organisation enormous potential for influence and achievement in its dealing with governments and education authorities.
