Parents & Friends

The St Francis Xavier Parents & Friends 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 to gather with the principal and teachers at the school, to ensure that everything necessary is being done for the school and its community, and particularly the students. Like 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 and the P & F provides the formal structure necessary 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.


Parents & Friends Association Meetings

Parents, carers and friends are welcome to attend all P&F general meetings. These meetings are usually held once a month in the Conference Room in the Mercy Resource Centre at 6.00pm. Agenda items should be submitted by 5pm on the Monday before the meeting. The meeting dates are included in the school calendar. If you cannot attend these meetings but would like to be kept informed via email about what is happening with the P&F, please send an email to pgoodnapandf@bne.catholic.edu.au requesting that you be added to the P&F email address list.
