P&F and Advisory Committee - St John the Baptist, Freshwater
School Community

P&F and Advisory Committee

St John the Baptist Parents and Friends Association has a dual purpose.

To foster the wellbeing and inclusiveness of the school community and raise funds to further enhance all students’ learning. Each year the P&F events significantly reflect this positive mix, by providing social occasions where parents and carers can meet, mingle and make friends; strengthening our school community in its core values; support school initiatives as well as, providing valuable resources for the whole school to enjoy.

The St John the Baptist P&F is solely delivered through the generosity of parent volunteers. The P&F Executive Members include a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and Diocesan Parent Council Represented. The P&F Executive Members are elected at the Annual General Meeting in Term Four each year. Any member of our school community can be nominated and elected into the executive positions if they so desire. St John the Baptist P&F is governed by the Parents & Friends Association Constitution of Broken Bay (2013). P&F meetings are conducted once per term and are a mix of social and school business.

Each year the P&F with the assistance of the Class Parent Co-ordinators organise events to continually strengthen and build our community such as;

  • Welcome Night for all new and existing families
  • Mother’s Day and Father’s Day Liturgy, breakfasts and stalls
  • Children’s Disco and movie night
  • Trivia Night
  • Parents Theme Night or Dinner Dance
  • Easter Raffle
  • Family Mass BBQ’s

In addition to the The P&F Association, our school also has an Advisory Committee. The Advisory Committee meets with the School Principal to discuss matters relating to the progress of our school.
