Parents and Friends (P&F)

The ƵappP & F supports the students at our School through fundraising and providing a voice for Ƶappfamilies and the wider community. As your P & F we take great pride in keeping the School community connected, making change that matters and supporting the vibrant learning environment that is Calrossy.

Who we are

ƵappP & F is made up of parents and friends of Ƶappstudents. Parents are encouraged to be part of the conversations through our twice per term meetings where everyone has an opportunity to express their ideas, provide feedback, ask questions, and invest in the educational journey for the students at Ƶapptoday and into the future.

What we do

Our P & F are helping to build a strong sense of community through involvement in various School events and supporting the opportunities for our students. Our most recent initiative is the Bursary assistance program where students can apply for support so they can attend cultural or sporting activities.

How we do it!

Recent P & F events include;

  • Colour Runs
  • BBQs, Stalls
  • Catering, Dinner dances
  • Golf Days
  • Our unique partnership with Tamworth Rugby Club
  • New ideas are always welcome and encouraged!

A voice for the community

The ƵappP & F has members from the School Executive regularly attend our meetings and receives invitations to be part of the conversation on all topics. Our P & F has held parent forums around important issues such school structure and uniform. The voice of the parent body is a valued part of decision making and direction at Calrossy.

Hear from the President

The ƵappParents and Friends have been investing in change that matters for the students since 1963. The P & F of 2024 is built on the legacy of the past members and supporters who implemented many amazing initiatives and kept our community together through the good times and not so good.

I myself have children at our School and I want all of our community to be part of the conversation. Our role as a P & F is to keep people together and to help impact the change that matters across our School and lead the conversation. We are very fortunate to have the backing from the School with Principal David Smith joining our meetings as well as access to support. The meetings are a chance to come together and discuss new ideas and opportunities that will bring people together. These meetings also discuss ways to fundraise so we can continue to provide opportunity or improvements for the students and staff in and out of the classroom.

If you would like to contact us please email: pandfcalrossy@calrossy.nsw.edu.au and follow our .

I look forward to meeting you at an upcoming P & F event or meeting soon.

Kind Regards
