Be heard. Get involved. Create sparks.

The Parents and Friends Association is a proud and vital part of the Ormiston College school community. It provides a platform and voice for all parents and local community members who wish to lend a hand, build our community and assist College Executive and staff.

Parents and Friends meetings

Meetings are held in the Somerset Sports Centre and everyone is welcome to attend. Prior to the commencement of our meetings, parents mingle, chat and network with other parents and the College’s Executive. A Headmaster’s Report is tabled at every meeting.

P&F Executive Committee

The P&F Association is managed by an Executive Committee comprising of:

  • Four elected office bearers
  • A number of Year Level Coordinators
  • Ex officio members including the Headmaster

All Association Executive Committee positions lapse at every Annual General Meeting and all positions on the Committee become vacant.

Anyone wishing to join the Executive Committee or nominate a candidate need to attend the AGM in order to do so. AGMs are held in March each year.

Have fun and help out

Under the Parents and Friend umbrella there are several support groups that fundraise for a number of educational, cultural, sporting and musical activities. Each group, consisting of staff and parent coordinators, has a specific fundraising focus and most are only active for a term or so. In addition to achieving their specific goals, our support groups have been the starting point for many lasting friendships.

Main Fundraising Events

The biennial College Carnival is the main fundraising event for the College. The P&F are strong participants and supporters in organising the carnival.

During the non-carnival years there is still much planning to be undertaken, smaller fundraising activities to be rolled out and several other projects, such as the College Musical, that simply would not get off the ground without this body of passionate volunteers.

Another P&F tradition is to host a first day back at school morning tea after drop off every term.
