Parents & Friends Association
St Joseph’s has an active and enthusiastic Parents and Friends Association (P&F). All parents/guardians of students are automatically members of the P&F and we invite you to be an active participant.
The primary objectives of the P&F are to fun and friend-raise. The P&F achieves this by:
- Contributing to the wellbeing of the school community – students, parents and staff
- Encouraging the participation of all parents/guardians in the life of the school and in the education of their children
- Operating democratically and inclusively, providing opportunities for parents/guardians to develop links within the school community.
The primary focus of the P&F Association is to provide an opportunity for parents to contribute valuable input in the direction for St Joseph’s and to stay informed of developments around the school. The support of the P&F is integral to the efficient running of the school. The P&F is a fundraising body as well as a social and education arm of the school community. They have a responsibility for the running of several committees within the school.
The P&F team meet on the first Friday of each month during the term in the Library. Notice is given via the school newsletter and Schoolzine app prior to the meeting advising of the agenda. Meetings are generally held at 2.00pm preceding the awards assembly.
