Family & Friends

Family & Friends

Family & Friends (F&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.

Family & Friends Meetings are held at Esculent Cafe 195 - 197 Old South Road, Old Reynella at 7.30pm.

2023 Meeting dates are:

  • Term 1 (Week 2) Tuesday 7th February
  • Term 1 (Week 6) Tuesday 14th March
  • Term 2 (Week 2) Tuesday 9th May
  • Term 2 (Week 6) Tuesday 6th June
