Parents & Friends

Parents & Friends (P&F) Sub-Committee is made up of a group of volunteers who meet a couple of times a term to plan, organise and promote the running of predominantly fundraising activities for the school. The group is also supported by a wider group of volunteers who may not attend these meetings but who actively assist in the running of activities such as the Mother’s Day and Father’s Day stalls which require extra help.

P&F Meetings are held at the Aberfoyle Hub Tavern at 7.30pm.

2022 Meeting dates are:

  • Term 1 (Week 2) Monday 7th February
  • Term 1 (Week 6) Monday 7th March
  • Term 2 (Week 2) Monday 9th May
  • Term 2 (Week 6) Monday 6th June
  • Term 3 (Week 2) Monday 1st August
  • Term 3 (Week 6) Monday 29th August
  • Term 4 (Week 2) Monday 24th October
  • Term 4 (Week 6) Monday 21st November

If you are interested in joining this fantastic and welcoming group of volunteers please contact Amanda Ardill via email at flaggypandf@gmail.com. Everyone is welcome to come along to meetings!

2021 Fundraising & Social Activities

During 2021 Parents & Friends ran many activities that have raised a lot of money for the school. The final number is pending due to our inability to get on site to do a stocktake from the last two events from last year, however we anticipate the final number to be over $10K. A fabulous effort!

A big thank you to all the parent volunteers who were involved during the year to make these activities successful! Everyone’s contributions in giving up their time or donating goods for these events are very much appreciated!
