Parents and Friends Association

​​​​The Parents and Friends (P&F) Association is comprised of representatives from the College Senior Leadership Team, Parents, Teaching Staff, and Community.
 
The mission of the Parents and Friends Association is:
 
To provide assistance and support to the College and the wider Clairvaux MacKillop College community, by working together to enhance and enrich the transition of our sons and daughters into confident and caring young men and women.
 
"Never see a need without doing something about it" Saint Mary MacKillop
 
Enrolment at Clairvaux MacKillop College means that not only does your child become an important member of the College Community; you do too.
 
Clairvaux MacKillop College recognises that family involvement in schools is central to high quality education and is part of the core business of schools (Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations Family-School Partnerships Framework). The P & F is the main parent body within the College and offers parents an avenue to participate in their child’s education by strengthening the link between the College, families and the wider community. 
 
The P & F is a welcoming and inclusive group, which supports the College’s goal of providing all students a comprehensive, quality education at a supportive educational facility.  The P & F’s main source of revenue is an annual levy included in school fees. Any proposal for expenditure is determined in consultation with the Principal and these proposals will be targeted for projects/resources to be enjoyed by Clairvaux MacKillop College students. 
 
Some of the facilities the P & F has contributed to include, but are not limited to:
  •          College Hall
  •          Auditorium
  •          Science Block
  •          ERC Centre
  •          Year 7 Formation Centre
  •          Resource Centre (Library).
The P & F provides a valuable forum for parents to discuss the issues impacting on their sons' or daughters' education and endeavours to promote a sense of community, College spirit and pride.
 
The current members of the Parents and Friends Executive are:
 
  • Francine Wicks                    (President)
  • Glen Dawe                          (Vice President)
  • Kim Hollingsworth                (Secretary)
  • Leenore Reedy                    (Treasurer)
  • Marisha Mees                      (Southside Bingo Representative)

  • Emma Moynihan                  (Brisbane Diocesan Delegate​)
  • Michelle Stirton                    (Brisbane Diocesan Delegate)
 
The P & F Committee is elected annually at its AGM held in March, and regular meetings are held each month. We thank you for taking the time to participate actively in the College community and partner the College in your child's education.  We’d really love to see you at one of the meetings.

​Parent Support Groups

Parent Support Groups work in partnership with the P & F Association, enabling parents to work with the teaching staff in supporting the activities in which their child participates – for example music, Kokoda challenge, sports or community service.
 
Much can been achieved as a direct result of parents' energy and participation, and all families are invited and encouraged to participate actively in the ongoing life of the College community. Every contribution counts.
