Parents & Friends

The Parents and Friends Association (P&F) provides a network for parents to participate in activities and decision making processes at Queen of Peace Parish Primary School. It works to benefit our children, the school and our community. Some of its many functions include:

  • supporting the school with social activities to help build community spirit.
  • helping the school financially by raising funds for specific/general purposes.
  • members helping to organise the school maintenance.
  • other roles and duties as the needs arise.

Meetings are usually held once a month on a Tuesday evening at 7.00pm. Dates are advertised in the weekly newsletter and the Parent Calendar. All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend.

QoP Mums’ Movie Club

We are starting up a QOP Mums’ Movie Club, where members can suggest a movie that anyone in the club might like to see. Someone might email that they’re thinking of going to a particular movie at a particular date, time and location and would anyone like to join them. If you are interested in joining the club, please send an email to the P&F, including your full name, mobile phone number, and eldest child’s name and grade at QoP.

QoP Dads’ Social Group

We are starting up a QOP Dads’ Social Group, where members can suggest an activity that anyone in the club might like to do. If you are interested in joining the club, please send an email to the P&F, including your full name, mobile phone number, and eldest child’s name and grade at QoP.

Notes from the P&F

Monthly General Meetings

The P&F holds monthly General Meetings, chaired by the President or Vice-President, who are supported by a Secretary, Treasurer, Fundraising Officer, Social and Pastoral Officer and Gardens and Grounds Officer. Each of these Executive Committee Members, and all Ordinary Members, have the opportunity to attend the meetings and report on and/or discuss any pertinent issues.

Please note that all parents and carers at QoP are automatically Ordinary Members of the P&F, and your ideas, thoughts and opinions are valued. P&F meetings are a great forum to have an open, honest and considerate discussion between parents, carers and the leadership of the School.

Come along and meet some friends you haven’t met yet! You will also get the chance to have a chat to the Principal and the Executive Committee.

Refreshments will be available from shortly before and throughout the meeting, and we will do our best to be finished by 8:30pm, even though we have a big agenda to get through!
