Parents and Friends

Parents and Friends Association

The St Joseph’s Parents & Friends Association (P&F) aims to encourage social interaction between families (by organising events for parents, students and staff) and assist in building a sense of community and wellbeing within the school. It also exists to raise funds for projects and resources that would not otherwise be financed and that will benefit the students.

The P&F welcomes all parents and encourages you to become involved. Being a member of the P&F is a rewarding and enjoyable way of being involved in our school community. It offers the opportunity to meet school families, make new friends (across various year levels) and contribute to the vibrant St Joseph’s community. Most importantly, involvement in the P&F benefits your child/children.

The P&F meets quarterly and coordinates a variety of events throughout the year, which can include:

  • Biennial fete/twilight fair
  • Biennial trivia night
  • Welcome barbecue/picnic
  • Parent welcome drinks
  • Prep parents morning tea
  • Parent coffee mornings
  • Mother's Day breakfast and stall
  • Father's Day breakfast and stall
  • Grandparent’s Day
  • World Teacher’s Day
  • Cake stalls
  • Working Bees
  • Movie sessions
  • End-of-year picnic

To become involved in the P&F, contact your class representative or a member of the P&F executive (names and contact details are available on the notice board in the foyer).
