Parents and friends association
As a new parent at St Cuthbert’s, you can count on the Parents & Friends’ Association to welcome you to the school community in the warmest way possible. All current members of the school belong to the Parents & Friends’ Association, which holds many functions and events during the year to bring our community together, and to give everyone the opportunity to meet our Principal, staff and Trust Board in an informal way.
The Parents and Friends Association also provides financial and practical support to the school through fundraising events. All profits from events are given back to the school for projects that directly benefit our daughters.
Monthly meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month during the school term and if you are interested in joining this is a great way to become involved in the St Cuthbert’s community! Please download the form here.
The Parents & Friends’ Association also organises Class Co-ordinators for the Junior and Middle Schools. These wonderful parents rally support for school events, as well as organising casual get-togethers for the mums and dads in individual classes to meet and socialise.
Parents and Friends’ Association: Asian Friendship Group
The Asian Friendship Group (AFG) is a special branch of the Parents & Friends’ Association that allows parents to meet and discuss any queries they have regarding day-to-day school life for their daughter.
This support network is a great resource for parents new to St Cuthbert’s – it helps to guide parents and daughters as they settle into life at the school, provides an opportunity to make new friends, and connects parents with similar experiences.
The AFG also supports the school through various fundraising initiatives that are deeply appreciated by staff and students. The recent opening of the AFG Fitness Centre in the Centennial Centre for Wellbeing is an example of the wonderful contribution the Asian Friends Group makes to our facilities, and community.
A variety of languages are spoken within the group including Cantonese, Japanese, Mandarin and Korean. For more information about the AFG please download the brochure here – a warm and friendly group of parents is waiting to welcome you!
