St Martin’s Parents & Friends Association
Our school is truly blessed by an active and committed Parents & Friends Association (P&F) that enhances a deep sense of belonging and connectedness in our community.
The P&F support us to provide a quality learning experience in a friendly school community by:
- Hosting social events for families to connect

- Kids’ social events – movie night, disco, games night
- Sporting and PE events

Join the P&F
Being involved in your child’s school life is a fulfilling way to support their education and shape St Martin’s future. Joining our P&F is a wonderful way to form lifelong friendships and model our value of service to others for our children.
Our P&F team thrives on the energy and generosity of our parent volunteers. You can participate as little or as much as you like with roles for one-off events or ongoing activities.
Each term the P&F meets to review progress and hear from our Principal and parent committees. P&F meetings are well attended and are a fabulous way for parents to find out what is happening in our school.
All parents and friends of St Martin’s are welcome to attend and raise issues, offer ideas, ask questions or contribute to discussions at these meetings. We would love to hear your ideas and new perspectives so we can continue to improve the P&F and better support our school.
To join St Martin’s P&F, come along to a quarterly meeting as advertised in the school newsletter or email the P&F Executive Team on firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also feel free to contact the Executive Team with suggestions, comments or questions. Meetings are held each term.
