School Board and Parent Body

School Board

The School Board is an elected group of people representing the parents, the staff and the parish. The board’s functions include:

  • the support of the school's Christian ethos
  • responsibility for the school's financial management
  • the development of school policy

The School Board meets monthly and operates in accordance with the Guidelines set by the South Australian Commission for Catholic Schools.

The Parents and Friends Association

Our Parent Body

“Connecting the Parents & Friends in our Community”

The Parents and Friends committee is responsible for organising social activities to promote ‘community’ as well as fund raising. All parents and/or carers of the school are automatically members of the P&F. The main focus is to support St Francis of Assisi School in building community and a network amongst families. The P&F organises small fundraisers, but throughout the year the main funding is through the P&F Levy.

All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend committee meetings, as well as community building and fund raising activities and functions.

The Parents and Friends Committee events

Previous events the P&F has organised:

  • ​Mother's Day Stall
  • Entertainment Books
  • Grandparents & Grandfriends Day
  • Sports Day BBQ
  • Father's Day Stall
  • School Disco

Other than the Entertainment Book, these are all community building events.

We are always looking for parent volunteers to join us .... would you like to become involved?  

As a parent you are automatically a member of the P&F - the Parent Body of the school. 

Assisting with organising an event or helping on the day - you will always walk away with satisfaction - role modelling your support of your children's school.  An added bonus is that you will meet other parents you may not already know and, in many instances, make some life long friends!

Have a think about how you can become involved in our school, grab a friend or friends, come along .... it's is really a lot of fun!
