Parents and Friends

P&F meet regularly throughout the year, forming social bonds and discussing ways in which the parent community can support our school.  Previous experience in committees is not necessary and everyone is welcome to participate in whatever capacity they choose. If you are unable to attend meetings, but would like to be involved in Parents and Friends, please let the office know so that we can keep you informed of what is going on. 

 

We invite you to join us at our meetings, we would love to see lots of new faces!!!


Here are a few of our fund raising efforts for this term that you may wish to get involved in.


Avenel Market BBQ – Sunday 13th August

A great way to support our local market and raise money for the school at the same time. Man the BBQ or be up front selling Scotty’s famous snags.

 

Mitchelton Chocolate Festival – Sat 19th & Sun 20th August

Be part of this mouth-watering weekend at the Mitchelton Chocolate Festival, held at the stunning Mitchelton Wines in Nagambie.  Toss a few chocolate themed snags on the BBQ and then snag yourself a tasty treat from the chocolate shop or the cellar door.

 

The Great Avenel Pie Drive – Thursday 12th October

Meal salvation is coming your way courtesy of the Great Avenel Pie Drive, a new fundraising initiative of the P&F.  The school community will have the chance to pre-order a great range of savoury and sweet pies from the award winning Gaffney’s Bakery.  Fight Friday night food fatigue with individual or family sized pies and feel great to knowing that a percentage of all sales go back to the school as fundraising.

 

Planning is starting now for another fantastic Fete and Clearing Sale.  Many hands make light work so the P&F Committee will be looking for people to join the following fete subcommittees:  Raffles & Prizes, Catering  & Rides.
