P&F Association

Purpose of the P&F
The St Peters Parents and Friends Association (P&F) plays a vital part in supporting the school community. It is a forum for parents to contribute suggestions and ideas that assist the principal's role of building a welcoming and supportive community.

The P&F is not a complaints forum. Grievances are to be directed to the classroom teacher or the Leadership team in accordance with the existing grievance procedures and parent code of conduct.
 
Events held by the P&F
The P&F is a not for profit team that are a necessary part of fundraising for extra resources. This is achieved through a variety of events that the P&F arrange and run each year, some of which are listed below:
 

Bush Dance (Term 1)

Senior Disco (Term 3)

Anzac march sausage sizzle (Term 2)

Father's Day stall (Term 3)

Junior Disco (Term 2)

Parents night out (Term 4)

Mother's Day stall (Term 2)

Prep Orientation morning tea (Term 4) 

The P&F also arrange and run bi-annual events such as a Walkathon, Family Portraits and a Spring Fair. The next Spring Fair is in August 2015*, with the next Walkathon and Family Portraits in 2016.
 
Contributions from the P&F
Funds raised from these events are then used around the school to improve the daily life for students, teachers, faculty and the school community. Examples of items that have been contributed to the school due to the fundraising efforts of the P&F are:
 
Pool infrastructure including: Prep play area
     ~ Initial building and development Phonic ear program roll out to classes
     ~ Lane ropes Jumping castle
     ~ Pool covers Bain-marie
     ~ Roof Full dinner settings for the Grade 6
graduation dinner

 

Involvement in the P&F
These events would not happen without the help of volunteers. Every family at the school is automatically a part of the P&F and is invited to attend the regular meetings, events and help where possible. The level of involvement in the P&F is up to the individual and can range from being a committee member, attending meetings, or helping out when there is an event on.

Meetings are held once a month at 6.30pm in the staffroom. The majority of the meetings are on the first Tuesday of the month. Check the weekly newsletter for the upcoming meetings. Children are welcome to come to the meetings, but there is no supervision provided.
