The Parents and Friends Association meets monthly throughout the year. It is an opportunity for interested parents to involve themselves in fundraising activities, to meet with other parents, to support school projects, to discuss school issues, to contribute to policy making and to act as a forum for the exchange of ideas about the school.
From time to time, the association arranges for visiting speakers, or staff members, to speak on topical issues in education. At the beginning of the year it arranges a “Meet the Teachers” night. The fete, held in the fourth term is a major initiative which the Parents & Friends Association organises and runs for the benefit of all students.
Money raised in this way is put towards whole school projects and initiatives. There is a voluntary fee charged to parents’ accounts every term which is used to supplement the Association’s funds.
