Parents & Friends« back to home

St John's Parents & Friends (P&F) include parents, grandparents and carers who volunteer to organise fundraising and social activities for the school community.

Official committee roles of the P&F include the president, vice president, secretary and treasurer. The committee gets together regularly to organise fundraising activities and meets with the school principal and vice principal at least once a term. Our meetings are advertised in the newsletter and school calendar.

Our report in the newsletter keeps the school community informed of P&F activities and of any assistance that we may require.

Our Aims

The primary aim of the P&F is to raise funds to enrich our children’s experience at school. We also try to create regular social opportunities for families during the year. Read more about our annual and one-off special events and our fundraising achievements.

How to Get Involved

The P&F are happy to welcome new faces and there are many ways to get involved. You can put your name down on a roster, become a class rep, come to a meeting or contribute any fundraising ideas you might have. You may be able to ask one of your favourite local businesses to contribute or you can apply your own particular skills to a task.

There’s no need to make a regular or formal commitment, just contribute whenever you can manage it. Everyone’s welcome, including preschoolers – we just take it in turns to entertain them. When more parents are involved, the workload is shared and we can have a lot of fun.
