Parents and Friends

The P&F recognises and values the role that parents and guardians play in our children's education

The P&F was created to benefit your child’s development and learning, by working in collaboration with you, the School and the Principal, to foster effective partnerships between family, school, church and the wider community.

The P&F is inclusive for all St James’ parents upon enrolment, and we encourage you to actively participate.

The P&F aims to promote WELLBEING IN the school

  • The main purpose of the P&F is to develop a community focus with an emphasis on creating a sense of inclusiveness, involvement and fun in and around St James’.
  • Our primary aim is ‘friend-raising’ and bringing people together for a positive community interaction.
  • Parent contributions to the P&F and fundraising activities assist us in providing resources and opportunities for enriching the St James’ learning environment, in consultation with school staff and the Principal.
  • To develop and manage a register of annual parent commitment hours, on behalf of the School.

Meet the P&F President

"I would like to introduce myself. I'm Robin, your P&F President. I am a proud parent of two St James' students in Year 2 and 7, and it is great to be a part of the School community. I'm looking forward to meeting other families and sharing ideas on how we can build a vibrant P&F community. I'm keen to listen to parents and learn which events and initiatives matter to you."
