The Collegiate Parents and Friends’ Association

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


Welcome to the Collegiate Parents & Friends' Association (P&F). 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, separate gatherings for Mothers and Fathers, a Father/Daughter Walk, Mother/Daughter Bike Ride, and more. These events raise money to help fund a vast array of items and initiatives across the whole School.

The Collegiate P&F comprises Year Group Representatives from ELC to Year 12, as well as an Executive (President, Treasurer and Secretary).

The President is able to serve a maximum 3-year term. Year Group Representatives typically join the Collegiate P&F at the AGM in early November; however, vacancies can be filled at any time and parents are welcome to indicate their interest at any point in the school year.

The Year Group Representatives also play a key role in liaising with their respective Year groups, together with organising gatherings to create relaxed, enjoyable opportunities for parents to meet on a casual basis and build friendships.

Other elected positions include Event Coordinators (Fair, Quiz Night and Christmas Craft & Food Market etc.).

All Collegiate parents and friends are welcome to attend the monthly meetings to ask questions, contribute to discussions and hear from guest speakers from time to time. The Principal and Deputy Principal usually attend, together with members of staff.

The current President of the Collegiate P&F is Karen Jones. Please direct all enquiries to Karen via

The Angels are groups of past Collegiate parents who maintain their friendships and social connections with their child's year group and their support of the School. This is done on an informal basis within the relevant leavers' year group.

Named by Sister Jessica to recognise their remarkable contributions to Collegiate. We know that there are many past parents who enjoy catching up and we encourage any interested past parents to become involved.

How can I get involved?

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!
