P&F News


Thank you to the wonderful St Peter's parents who attended the first St Peter's P&F meeting of 2021! As well as being a positive meeting to start 2021, it was the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to nominate and confirm the executive P&F team for 2021. The meeting was attended by Bernadette Kay from 'Catholic School Parents Queensland', who discussed that the P&F team's focus is to support the School Principal. By supporting the school Principal, the P&F supports the school and learning in the school. She discussed parent engagement in schools, noting the positive impact that parent involvement has on our children and the entire school community. Bernadette's attendance was a great start to the meeting.

Regarding P&F events for 2021, as they are confirmed, information will be provided through the Parent Portal, school newsletters and the St Peter's P&F Facebook page - 'St Peter's 'St Peter's Rochedale P&F'. We welcome any event ideas you have so please send through any ideas for events you would enjoy being involved in and attending to stpetersparentsandfriends@gmail.com.

The P&F is working on developing a new plan for funding requirements in St Peter's. While raising funds is not the main objective of the P&F, the P&F does provide significant funds for projects around the school. Examples of P&F funds use in previous years include close to $125,000 for the flexible learning classroom furniture, $13,000 funding for the labyrinth, and allocation of around $40,000 to the planned St Mary Mackillop Learning area redevelopment.

The call out is beginning for Class Parent Representatives to volunteer for 2021. Class Parent Reps and the P&F team play a valuable role in demonstrating to our children the importance of education and the school community involvement. The P&F is supporting Class Parent Reps in 2021 by providing clarity on the role, assistance for all Class Parent Reps and introducing a Coordinator to assist the Class Parent Reps throughout the year. We understand that taking on a parent rep role for your child's class is a commitment, however as a group of parents, we can support each other, share responsibilities, and make a difference! Please let us know if you want to support your child's class as Class Parent Rep by emailing your class teacher or stpetersparentsandfriends@gmail.com.

The St Peter's P&F encourages you to 'like' us on Facebook and we look forward to working with you all soon!
