Parents and Friends’ Association

The Parents and Friends’ Association 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 will support the St Mary’s School community with their participation in the Families Welcome, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day events in 2020.

The Parents and Friends’ Association often seek volunteers for key College events and our community members make a beneficial contribution to these. Please contact our Parents and Friends’ Association via the email below if you would like to participate and support an upcoming event. We’d love to see you there!

Thank you,

P&F Association

Families Welcome Event

It was wonderful to see everyone having lots of fun at the Families Welcome Event on Wednesday 19 February. Families had an enjoyable evening with a delicious barbecue, a jumping castle, outdoor play and lots of great conversations. Thank you to all helpers, the Senior band and the Parents and Friends’ Association who provided the food, beverages, cooking and organised the jumping castle, for such a nice night.
