Parents and Friends

St Mary’s College Parents and Friends Association membership is open to all parents/carers of students involved in the College. The P & F meet formally and regularly to contribute to the life and welfare of the school, and participate in College activities. The P & F Association is not limited to fundraising but is involved in the total life of the College.

What do we do?

  • We develop a community inclusive of a Catholic` ethos.
  • We support and work in partnership with the principal and staff.
  • We participate in decision making and deal with issues in a positive and cooperative manner.
  • We promote interaction between home and college, parents and teachers to establish a good working relationship in order to achieve a common direction.
  • We encourage parent participation in College life and provide the organizational structure to create a forum to do so.
  • We assist in providing resources to the College when necessary.
  • We endeavour to be seen fair when distributing monies raised across all year levels in the College - early childhood, junior primary and secondary students and we have a process.
  • We assist in the planning and organising of functions approved by a P & F meeting and the Principal.
  • We strengthen the bonds of community and foster lay leadership

The P & F operates with the constitution and is obliged to adhere to aims, objectives and general principles as pronounced in the constitution.

A schedule of meetings is put out at the start of each year.

Project Compassion – 2018

We are grateful for the continued generosity of the St Mary's College Community, embracing the annual Lenten fundraising and awareness-raising appeal, Project Compassion, which brings together thousands of Australians in solidarity with the world's poor to help end poverty, promote justice and uphold dignity.

We would like to acknowledge the continued efforts of our entire St Mary’s College Community and give great thanks as we have an outstanding total amount raised of $6,605.33.

A large cheque was presented to Monsignor Paul at our Feast Day Mass to contribute to the sum from the Kimberly Region.

We are so proud of our students who embrace this project with their listening hearts and who are inspired to "be more" for less fortunate in our world.


CONGRATULATIONS!
