Parents and Friends

The Parents and Friends Association at the College is very active, working to support friendship amongst parents and past parents, and to support the welfare and activities of the College. The friendly atmosphere at the College is encouraged by events during the course of the year that bring our parents together in social settings.

Membership

All parents and past parents of Saint Kentigern College are members of the P&F Association after paying a 'once only' subscription that is part of the enrolment fee.

The Committee comprises of more than 20 enthusiastic volunteers and each year a number of these people step down as their children graduate and move on, leaving vacancies. Parents interested in joining are always welcome. The AGM is held in March for formal acceptance on the committee, but other parents who would like to be involved, if only to offer help occasionally are encouraged to make contact.

What we do

The Committee meets at the College approximately 8 times each year on a Monday evening, when our current and future activities are planned and discussed. The Head of College or another representative, along with a representative from the Trust Board, bring a report to each meeting. This is an important opportunity for information sharing and for parents to ask questions about specific issues at the College.

The College P&F Association actively raises funds through the operation of the Lunch Bar for Middle School students and the Cafe for Senior School students, as well as special fundraising events.

The Graduation Dinner is one of many events we host each year but we also provide catering support for many other functions throughout the year. Invariably these occasions are fun and rewarding for all who join in.

Our funds are used at the discretion of the committee to provide additional equipment or facilities to benefit the students.
