Parents and Friends Committee

square discoThe Inaugural Meeting of the Parents’ and Friends’ Association Steering Committee was held on 31 August 2011 with twelve parents in attendance. Mr Milgate explained that the purpose of the evenings meeting was to get to know the structure behind Parents’ and Friends’ Associations in the Diocese of Wollongong. Mrs Kay Blundell from the Catholic Education Office gave a thorough explanation of the Draft Constitution approved by the Bishop’s Office. She then distributed some handouts on the roles of President, Secretary and Treasurer and handouts of information available on the Parents Forum website.

After some discussion it was resolved that for the first year the steering committee would focus on community building and getting to know you events. There would be no office bearers for the first 12 months. This would allow parents to get to know who has the skills to be part of an executive committee. All parents present agreed to be part of a committee that could be called upon to organise and support events next year. There would be formal planning meeting held at the beginning of each term.
