Parents and Friends Association


The Clayfield College Parents and Friends Association (P&F) is an essential and active member of the College community, supporting the College through fundraising and social events. There are 3 support groups and 1 permanent sub-committee under the umbrella of the P&F Association, These are the Debating Sub-committee, Sports Support Group, the Primary School Support Group (formally Junior Support) and the Music Support Group.

The P&F have regular and relaxed meetings that are preceded by informal drinks. These are usually once a month on a Tuesday night during term time, starting at 6.30pm in the Learning Resource Centre. These meetings are open to all parents and caregivers and provide a forum for parents to express their views on any matter related to the College. We encourage you to come along to meet other parents, get to know our Principal, Mrs Kathy Bishop, and learn so much more about the College. Meeting dates are published in the College Calendar and we send reminders out on the College App. There is no need to ask, just come along. You will always be made very welcome.

The P&F Executive is elected annually at the AGM held in November. The P&F organises social functions, such as the Welcome Drinks, to enable parents to meet and enjoy each other's company and also runs many other events throughout the year. The P&F oversees the operation of the Tuckshop, College Shop and the Second Hand Book Sales which rely on parent volunteers to function. These activities serve the dual purpose of raising valuable funds for the College for the benefit of all the students, as well as providing an avenue for bringing the community together. The P&F welcomes and encourages members of the community to volunteer their time and efforts to be part of the P&F and its support groups.
