As soon as your child is enrolled you become part of the St James Parents and Friends! Our P & F is integral to the health of the school and allows our parents, grandparents and friends, to truly contribute to the school their children attend.
Parents and Friends meetings are held once a month, which works out to two meetings per term. Meetings alternate between a day time meeting and an evening meeting, with the intention of making it possible for parents to attend. The date, time and venue is always advertised well in advance in the Newsletter and all parents and friends of the school are welcome to attend. Morning tea or supper is provided and pre-school children are welcome. Minutes of the meetings are published in the school Newsletter so that parents not able to attend meetings can still keep informed.
The P & F has an Executive Committee who work with the Principal and all other parents. The Committee members bring their much appreciated skills to the roles, it is a great way to meet and work with others, develop organisational skills and confidence and be involved in your child’s school. The AGM is held early in the school year and at the end of a 2-year term Executive positions are declared vacant.
