The PFA The PFA started the year on a high note with the annual New Parents Social Evening.

A beautiful warm evening provided the perfect backdrop and it was so lovely to see such a large crowd enjoying drinks and canapés in the Mary Davis Centre. Our Year level class representatives did a fabulous job of making sure everyone felt welcome. The feedback from new parents, was they felt very much a part of our community due to the amazing effort the Reps went to in seeking them out and speaking to them. The PFA are to be commended on doing an amazing job hosting the event as should our very capable girls in Years 11 and 12 who very kindly handed out food.

We are very happy to welcome four new members to the PFA this year, Susie Farrer as Co Vice President, Erica Gill as Treasurer, Lara Stocco as Junior School Class Rep Co-ordinator and Joanne Livanidis as a general member.  The main function of the PFA is to provide opportunities for parents to connect in a social setting. This year we aim to carry out an Audit of the events we currently provide to better understand what elements are working, and those that are not, what needs to be improved or changed and if each function is still relevant and being enjoyed. In undertaking this work we hope to have a clear plan of how best to engage the community in the years to come. Mrs Nicole Begley PFA President

The Past Parents’ and Families’ of the class of 2010 had a lovely drinks party at the home of Lucinda and Nikki Maartens. It was the beginning of the Christmas season and the festive times had begun. We were lucky with a balmy December evening on Wednesday 7 December with the Maartens’ home already beautifully decorated for Christmas. It was a great time catching up with everyone and finding out all the news. Six years since graduation had gone in a flash so there was a lot to talk about! Many thanks to Lucinda and Nikki for opening up their beautiful home for the occasion. Mrs Anna Field Class of 2010 Past Parent
