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 held on a Monday evening at 7.00pm. Dates are advertised in the school newsletter and the Parent Calendar. All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend.

If you are interested to find out more about the QoP P&F, you can download and read the Constitution

Notes from the P&F

General Meetings

The P&F holds 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.

Meeting Dates

As we are currently governed by Stay at Home Restrictions, we cannot hold any events and have cancelled Term 3’s P&F meeting. When we are again allowed to run events, we will communicate this via future newsletters/CareMonkey. In the meantime, all the best with remote learning and stay safe. 
Kind regards,
Maureen Puopolo
P&F President

Parent Teacher Online

PTO Online is a simple, convenient and secure system for booking parent teacher interviews, three way conferences or event sessions.

Uniform

All children who attend Queen of Peace are required to wear the approved school uniform appropriately. This includes while on the way to and from school. The uniform should be worn neatly as it is an indication of pride in the school. Please refer to the School Uniform Policy.

Queen of Peace Uniform Shop is open Friday mornings 8:30 – 9:15am and it is located in an office in the foyer of the Sports Hall.  Any changes to this opening time will be communicated via FlexiBuzz and school newsletter.  If you are unable to attend the Uniform Shop, orders can be placed at the office.  Students can also submit the order form (click on button at right) via their classroom tub and orders will be filled when the Uniform Shop is next open.

Queen of Peace is a SunSmart school and all children are required to wear school hats (sunglasses are now optional) from September to the end of April.
