Parents & Friends
The Parents and Friends Association is quite different to what you may have experienced at your child’s primary school. The Daramalan P&F provides an opportunity for involvement in the life of the College and contribution to the school community.
The P&F manage the operation of the College Canteen and the Uniform Shop. The P&F also share their views on various matters, providing a valuable source of advice for the Principal.
The 2013 P&F committee is as follows:
- Vivienne Rolfe- President
- Angela Dunn - Vice-president
- Stewart McDermott - Treasurer
- Kylee Gardiner- Secretary
The APFACTS representative is Peter Murray
The P&F meets at least once each term and communication between meetings is via email.
Last 2013 Meeting:
- Wednesday 30 October 6.30pm
How can you participate?
- Attend P&F meetings.
Contribute to the decisions about how to spend the P&F levy
The P&F directs its funds towards special projects within the College. Recent projects have been the purchase of a new 24 seater bus, and more recently a contribution to the College's DVD Classroom System.
- Volunteer to help on Sacred Heart Day
- Volunteer to help at the Charity Walk
The annual fundraising activity of the P&F was, until 2007, the annual walk by the students around Canberra's Lake Burley Griffin which raised money by individual sponsorships of each student. This fundraising method has now been replaced by a levy within the school fees for the Parents and Friends.
In 2008, the Kilothon - as the walk was called - was still a P&F activity but all the proceeds were donated to charity. The Catholic charities "Caritas" and the "St Vincent de Paul Society" were the recipients from 2008 to 2013.
