Parents and Friends

Port Melbourne Primary School values parental involvement.

 

One way to become involved in the School is through the active and friendly Parents & Friends Association. The Parents & Friends Association encourages social interaction, improved communication and facilitates fundraising.

Parents & Friends is a group which meets regularly to:

  • Provide events which encourage participation and social contact e.g.: welcome BBQ, grandparents’ morning tea;
  • Provide support for school events, such as information nights
  • Organise fundraising to support current school projects.
  • Organise regular fundraising events which help bring the school community together, such as:
      • Trivia and auction night
      • Annual Fete (Sunday 29 November this year)
      • Mothers’, Fathers’ and Special Persons’ Day Stalls
      • Family fun run
      • Easter raffle and end of year Christmas concert.

 

Over the last few years, the PFA have raised enough money to contribute to the following, including but not limited to:

  • $100,000 upgrade to the oval
  • $25,000 of wireless networks in A, D & E blocks
  • $12,000 interactive whiteboards for the music room, and new Mod 10 classrooms
  • Money raised to go towards the garden club, take home books, listening centres and a Sony sound system for the junior choir
  • A host of events such as welcome morning tea, grandparents morning tea, staff thank you lunch, 125 year celebrations
  • Emergency lunches and treats for the children at sports and Green Day events. The Parents & Friends Association meets monthly. The meeting day and time may be altered to suit the needs of the group.
