Parents and Friends Association

The Kinross Wolaroi Parents and Friends Association (P&F) provides an invaluable service to the School. They are a voluntary group which provides a forum for parent discussion, social and educational occasions for parents, fundraising activities, and other support to the school as required. Membership of the P&F is open to all parents and friends of students at the School from Pre-Kinder to Year 12.

Friend Raising

The focus of P&F is communication and connection, reaching out to all associated with the school to build a friendly and welcoming community – “Friend Raising”. The P&F aims to strengthen the relationship between family, school and the wider community for the benefit of their children’s overall development and learning. The P&F is particularly instrumental in welcoming new parents into the School community via morning teas, dinners and social gatherings. 

Fundraising

Income from fees and fundraising are used to support social and community activities and to provide resources and opportunities for enriching the environment of the School and students. The P&F have recently donated furniture to the Prep School, a cover to extend the PLC swimming pool use, high value items such as printers and photography studio equipment for the Art and Textile departments and STEM room, sponsorship and financial support for programs, gardens and canteen equipment. Fundraising from the annual Fair Day has also contributed to the Performing Arts program and Library.
