Parents & Friends

 

The College has an active P&F Association that provides support and hosts events to enhance building our community at St Patrick’s College.

 

The P&F hosts the Year 7 Parent Welcome Dinner, the Mother Daughter High Tea, the Father Daughter Bush Dance and School Dances.

The P&F also provide barbeques and canteen services at Orientation Day, Open Day, Musical and Cross Country.

As all families are now levied $50 per year for the P&F, there is no longer a need for P&F energies to go into fundraising. The P&F hand over substantial funds to the College to be used on resources all girls can access. Projects such as lighting and sound in the Mary Sheil Centre, refurbishment of the Chapel, furniture in classrooms and resurfacing of the sports courts were all financed by P&F funds.

The P&F also finance guest lecturers to speak to parents throughout the year on parenting and raising girls.

The Parent Support Network is an arm of the P&F. Samaritan Spirit Support @ St Pat’s provides support and assistance to parents in our community. They host morning teas to build connections amongst parents and provide resources and services to parents and families in need.

 

The Executive of the Parents & Friends are:

President Denise Egan
Vice President Claire Montgomery
Secretary Liz Henson 
Treasurer George Gatt
