Parents & Friends’ Association

Written by ac-admin. Posted in Featured News, News, Timeline

The SMC Parents and Friends’ provides a forum to:

  • engage in a spirit of cooperation with the life of the College.
  • promote genuine fellowship between parents, staff and friends of the College.
  • assist in the provision of the College’s facilities and teaching resources.
  • actively partner and contribute to their child’s educational experiences.

The Parents and Friends’ Association runs a variety of social and fundraising events and proceeds go directly to providing additional facilities for the students.

Be part of the Parents and Friends’ Association by attending meetings, providing assistance or being available for feedback. We look forward to your input.

Thank you,

P&F Association

Students benefit from P&F’s additions

New meeting dates have been added, so please have a look below, as we would love to see some new faces.

To start the new year, we wanted to share with you where our fundraising dollars have gone to with some photos. The P&F fully funded a portable stage that can now be used for a range of College events – we think it looks great – and have received a very heartfelt thank you from the school. The stage was recently used for a photoshoot with The Mercury.

The P&F have also contributed to the new Year 5 class room furniture set-up. We were invited to have a look at the rooms, and I must say, the teachers have done a wonderful job and the rooms look amazing; I am sure our Year 5 girls are enjoying this more relaxed style of learning.

The playground equipment, made possible with funding from the P&F, was a welcome addition to the Bottom Court, and I am sure will bring lots of enjoyment throughout the years to come.

We have also purchased additional STEM learning devices (Spheros) for Year 6 students to code and use as part of their ongoing education.

Once again, we have some community events planned for this year – including Mother’s and Father’s Day breakfasts – which we hope to see you at; more information on these events will follow, so watch this space!
