The Collegiate Parents and Friends’ Association

St Michael's Collegiate Parents & Friends' Association provides an important link between parents and the School. 

About

The Collegiate P&F is actively involved in welcoming and supporting new parents, maintaining an engaged and informed parent community, and proudly promoting Collegiate to the wider community.  The Year Representatives of the Collegiate P&F organise a variety of social gatherings and events across our campuses, creating opportunities for parents to meet on a casual basis and build friendships.

As well as the strong focus on building supportive friendships and networks amongst parents, the Collegiate P&F raises essential funds to support the School.  The major Collegiate P&F events include the gala School Fair, a Quiz Night, separate special nights for Mothers and Fathers, a Father-Daughter-Walk and a Christmas Craft and Food Market.  These events raise many thousands of dollars that fund a vast array of items and initiatives across the whole School.

How can I contribute?

All parents are warmly encouraged to contribute to the Collegiate P&F.  Involvement can range from being an active Collegiate P&F member, to assisting with any of the Collegiate P&F events throughout the year.  Parents do not need to be members of the Collegiate P&F to get involved and any assistance, no matter the magnitude, adds to the life of the School and the richness of the Collegiate community.

If time constraints limit your ability to participate in volunteer activities, then your attendance and participation at the various activities arranged by Collegiate P&F during the year are always appreciated.

Answering a periodic ‘Will you help?’ request to volunteer at one of our major events is always welcomed. We generally ask for help in 30-minute time slots and there’s always pack-up after the event!
