Parents & Friends

059.jpgGA Parents & Friends Association

A very energetic and involved P&F Association is a major contributing factor to the success of this school. Meetings are held every second Tuesday of the month. The P&F raises funds for resources and equipment and plays a valuable role in building community.

2019 P&F Executive

President: Justin O’Flaherty

Vice President: Kara Vallins

Treasurer : Brad Polkinghorne

Secretary: Elizabeth Smith

Fete Convenor: Jay Vella

The P&F has a dedicated email address. Feel free to contact us at pwynpandf@bne.catholic.edu.au at any stage.

Our school is part of the Federation of P&F Associations. For more information on their services or to subscribe to their newsletter “Parent Chatter” visit www.pandf.org.au. ​

Volunteers

The P & F is run entirely by volunteers. Without the assistance of volunteers on nights such as the Disco, Welcome BBQ, Movie Night, Mothers/ Father’s Day stall and Fete we would not be able to run these events.

Money raised by these events go towards projects or additional educational materials requested by teachers or the school for the students of Guardian Angels.

If you can help at any P & F event, please let us know by contacting us at pwynpandf@bne.catholic.edu.au

Even if you can only spare an hour, we are grateful for any time you can provide. Tasks vary and no experience is necessary, just a smile.

Under the umbrella of the P&F are the following sub-groups:

Fete Committee

This committee is responsible for the organisation and smooth running of the Parish and School Fete, now held every 2nd year starting in 2020 (no fete for 2019).

Jay is the fete convenor and has run a very successful Fete for many years. However, this job cannot be done alone. If you can spare some time in the lead up to the fete & also on the day, please contact Jay via the email address below. Information on volunteering will be sent home in the lead up to the Fete, with plenty of notice. The Fete is not only a school event but a community event for the Wynnum Manly area.

Jay Vella can be contacted via the fete email pwynfete@bne.catholic.edu.au

When there is no fete, the P & F is be committed to putting on an event that will bring the school, parish and community together, such as a Day on the Green or similar. We welcome all ideas for a smaller event in the off year for the fete. Ideas can be emailed to pwynpandf@bne.catholic.edu.au
