The St Catherine's Catholic College P&F Association exists to support the school and parent body. It provides an opportunity for parents to organize their resources and work together for the mutual benefit of our school community members.
All parents are invited to attend at least one meeting each year. The association provides an opportunity through an open forum for parents to discuss concerns and raise issues that may or may not affect the students at the school. The main role of the P&F is to support the school environment to ensure the students and teachers have an ideal environment in which to learn. The day to day functions of the school is not the responsibility of the P&F.
The P&F is a forum where the school community can discuss their values, hopes and ideals for the school. A P&F will enhance its chances of success if it actively involves the school community in its management and decision making. Communication between all members of the school community is essential: the P&F, the School Principal, teachers, administration staff, students and interested members of the local community.
Meetings are held regularly and the venue alternates between the campuses. However, dates and venue can change if there is a necessity to accommodate other events. Election of office bearers takes place at the Annual General Meeting in February.The school newsletter and Facebook page are used to notify parents of any changes to scheduled meetings.
As the P&F Association fundraising activities alternate each year, the P&F relies on the annual contribution from each family to ensure that additional resources can be made available for all the students. The P&F levy is contributed through the school fees account, which is sent out each term.
Any questions in regards to the P&F Association can be directed to the Principal or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a gmail account you can use this email to join the meeting from home using google hangouts. Just make sure the P&F email is in your contacts and you will see the google hangout on your gmail screen when the meetings are in session.
Please contact the P&F or refer to the School Handbook for more information.
