Parents and Friends Association

St Mary’s has a very active and successful Parents & Friends Association, as all the parents at St Marys are automatically P&F Committee members. The P&F is a subcommittee of the School Board. An executive consisting of eight parents manage the Association, supported by the rest of the school community. They meet monthly, usually on the second Tuesday of the month, at 5.30pm in the school library. Meeting dates are listed in the school newsletter.

All members of the school community can attend the P&F meetings. Children are also welcome. The duration of each meeting is kept to approximately an hour.
