PFA – Parents & Friends Association
The PFA operates as a sub-committee of the School Council and its function is to assist the school in providing the best possible learning environment for our students. This is achieved through various fundraising activities across the year. Our PFA’s aims to also support our strong school community through parental involvement in a variety of community events and activities.
Each year we organise:
Gifts for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day stalls
Run a junior and senior disco
Organise a special food day for the students each term
What is the purpose of the PFA?
Our PFA has 2 main objectives:
- To foster a strong sense of COMMUNITY by providing an opportunities:
- to meet and connect with other parents, guardians, grandparents and special friends
- to have a voice in their child’s learning environment generating an atmosphere where everyone feels that they belong, and creating ongoing relationships that help support the school at every level
- FUNDRAISING in order to provide valuable enhancements to the school’s learning environment for the benefit of the students such as playground equipment, air-conditioning and exciting and much loved extra-curricular opportunities for our students. We have recently contributed to:
- Enhancing the ICT equipment within the school
- Expanding the literature available to students in the library
- Providing extra take-home books for students
- Purchasing a defibrillator for the school and wider community
- Extended the student’s play space through additional equipment
We welcome all parents, grandparents and carers to come and join us!
We offer many opportunities for all parents and guardians to be involved with the PFA, to help with planning events, and to contribute to events throughout the year. We meet once a month on a Tuesday at 6.30pm. We hope to ensure that new families feel connected to our school as soon as they arrive at Weeden Heights. Being a part of the PFA and being involved in school events is a fabulous way to get to know other parents and families within our community.
New members are encouraged and always welcomed. Parents and guardians can become a member of the PFA by speaking with our school office staff and they will put you in contact with the PFA presidents. Alternatively, community members are welcome to volunteer for any events to enhance the work of the PFA.
