As part of the OLD school community, parents are automatically part of the P&F. The P&F aims to foster a welcoming and vibrant school community and supports the School Vision, Mission and Values. We do this by:
The P&F runs many events and activities throughout the year including:
These events raise funds to support our students and school but more importantly to bring our families and community together. The activities of the P&F are vitally supported by parents who take on active roles as coordinators and supporters for the various activities and events that occur each year.
Proudly, in 2021, the P&F provided funds to the school that had been raised and committed over successive years, consolidated for the new school administration building and the proposed works to the front entrance from Willcocks Street. Other recent financial contributions have covered a range of items including technology resources; Year 6 graduation evening; new representative sports shirts; lunch for staff to celebrate World Teacher's Day; and the recent purchase of a much-needed new oven for the school kitchen.
The success of the P&F rests with all of us.
P & F meetings are held in the staff room on the second Monday of the month at 6.00 p.m.
The Annual General Meeting is held in November and at this meeting all Executive roles are vacated and the election of the new members of the Executive for the following year takes place.
