Parents and Friends 2019

Parents and Friends 2019

The aim of the Parents and Friends group is to foster the spirit of Moama Anglican Grammar core values through care and connection within the school community.

We started off 2019 with a Movie Night screening TOY STORY 3 which was popular with our primary families. This incorporated the assistance of the senior school running a BBQ and other treat stalls, enabling them to raise money for their Cambodia trip.

The Parents and Friends have regular commitments throughout the year and the group meet on the third Monday of each month. Each term an evening social event is held to welcome members of our school community to a more relaxed catchup. This year the PF have taken on promoting the monthly coffee morning on the first Friday of each month from 8:30 am in the primary school. This is an opportunity for parents at school drop off time, to use as a regular catch up with other parents.

Hosting our first Moama Anglican Grammar Night Out is our main event for the year. We trust that families will be supportive of the opportunity to come along and enjoy themselves. This is an opportunity for parents and staff to socialise outside of the school grounds and have a great night out with food, drink and entertainment. We envisage that this will be an annual event.

Our active Parent and Friend members have supported our school with events such as

• ANZAC and Remembrance Day Wreath Making Mornings

• Year 10 Homeless Sleep-out

• Collins Book Week Exhibit

• Father’s Day BBQ Lunch

• Junior Disco

• Food Bank

• Working Bees

• Making Boomerang Bags for the junior school to decorate and distribute

• Assisting Parent Class Representatives in organising events to help individual class teachers.

Our Parent and Friends committee would appreciate any new members who would like to join us, engage in the school community, and help out at any of our school events throughout the year. Our meetings are held in accordance with the School Board requirements, but most importantly, they are a great way to meet other parents and help your child’s school.

The PF committee roles are:
