Parents & Friends

Parents & Friends

Our Parent & Friends (P&F) Association plays an important role in working collaboratively with parents, students and staff in supporting and enhancing student experience of College life.

All parents/carers of students enrolled at the College are members of the P&F Association and are most welcome and encouraged to attend meetings. Families contribute a P&F Levy and this means that fundraising activities are no longer the major focus of the P&F Association, however, our P&F Association continues to make a significant contribution to College life in a number of ways, including:

  • Organise social events to bring parents together to enhance the sense of belonging and community
  • Organise activities to broaden the knowledge and awareness of parents with respect to learning and teaching undertaken at the College e.g. Information Sharing Evenings
  • Organise guest speakers with relevant experience and expertise to share information and tips that can assist in improving parenting skills
  • Promote high level engagement with parents and clear meaningful two-way communication between parents and the College
  • Promote active and informed parent engagement for a genuine partnership with parents and the College

Our parents/carers are encouraged to attend P&F Association meetings and their events. In so doing, you will not only gain a greater understanding of the teaching and learning taking place at our College but, hopefully, you will find it a very positive and rewarding experience that will enhance your sense of belonging to our Holy Spirit College community. 

Meetings are held at least four times per year. All parents/carers of students enrolled at the College are members of the P&F and are most welcome and encouraged to attend.

Please feel free to forward any thoughts, ideas or correspondence to the P&F’s email address parentsandfriends@hsc.qld.edu.au. We welcome your input through email and hope this will become a valuable way to communicate with the P&F when unable to attend a meeting. If you require further information call the College Office on 07 4994 8600.
