The Parents & Friends Association is an integral part of the Our Lady’s College and provides a formal structure for parents and others interested in the welfare of the students to participate in all activities and decision making processes at the school and to work for the benefit of the school.
The 2015 Parents and Friends Association have continued to work in partnership with the College Leadership team in providing a quality learning environment for our daughters.
It is important that we as a community are aware of how our contributions are utilised within the school. A portion of the P&F levy is committed to the repayment of the loan for the refurbishment of D block. It is hard to believe that this facility is celebrating its first birthday and its value is evident in the integral part it plays in the dynamic learning and teaching that occurs at Our Lady’s College. The remainder of the funds have been used in contributing to the following:
Each year we support the New parents BBQ held in the last Friday of February, and coordinate working bees throughout the school year. Last year we held 3 and all parents, students & staff who attended were unanimous in their both their enjoyment of the day and rewarded with the results of the work performed.
As a parent/carer it is a great way to meet other parents, participate in decision making, and promote interaction between home and school, as well as support and work in partnership with the Principal and staff.
We would welcome your input – please join us at our next meeting.
Our meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm. Our 2016 AGM will be held 8 November.
