Friends of the School

Staying in Touch and Getting Involved:

About us

Hello, we are a group of parents known as The Friends of the School, our meetings are a good place to meet other parents, to have some fun, and to develop a sense of belonging and involvement within the school.
We meet on the last Thursday of the month at 9am in the Staffroom. 
(Next meeting Thurs 29 August)
It is a good platform upon which to exchange ideas and news relating to our school and the community.  Our Principal (Viki Holley) also attends the meetings. We provide reports on activities and the school's focus and direction. We discuss fundraising ideas and occasionally canvas for volunteers to help in these efforts. 

FotS activites have included:

Friends of the School activities include an annual Quiz night, helping with the Mini Fairs, School Disco's, Sausage Sizzles and ICE BLOCK FRIDAYS in Terms 1 and 4. Funds are often used to help with transport costs for activities such as National Young Leaders, Zoo trips, Motat, Kelly Tarlton's etc. and senior school camp. In November last year we were able to install a new playground, this year we hope to add some more individual items.

How to become involved

If you have a free hour on the last Thursday of the month then, please feel free to pop along.
We always welcome new faces. There is no obligation to attend each month.

Statistics show that when parents and caregivers get involved with their children's school, their children see school as being important and they usually do better at school. Joining Friends of the School can have positive spin-offs for your children too.
