Parents & Friends

The Parents’ & Friends’ Association is a great way to get to know more about the College and meet other parents, especially those with children in different year levels. It’s also a good opportunity to get to know some of the College staff who attend the P&F meetings.

Darlington Campus (K-5)

The DC P&F moved to an association in November 2017 with re-registration and a new updated constitution.  Click this link to this document.

Glen Forrest Campus (6-12) 

Established in 1989, the Glen Forrest Campus Parents & Friends (GFC P&F) Association is an incorporated body with membership open to parents, guardians, carers of a student attending the College. All parents and carers with children enrolled at the Glen Forrest Campus automatically become members of the GFC P&F.

The Association formally represents parents and carers in their support of the work of the college and looks at ways to support a sense of belonging and connectedness between parents, citizens, students and school staff and provide a forum for ideas and discussions on relevant issues.

Be Involved

Within our community, there are many different areas in which you can commit to giving some of your time. The tremendous contributions of our families assist our students to form a sense of genuine belonging and greatly enhance their learning and growing.  Volunteering opportunities include giving support and lending a hand at College events and GFC P&F events throughout the year.
