Parents and Friends

All parents and friends of the College are welcome to be involved in the Parents & Friends Association (P&F). Participation in P&F activities is a wonderful way to meet other parents and College staff, and keep in touch with what is happening at the College. Some of our activities include:

  • Annual Cocktail Party – Each year the P&F hosts a welcome evening at the College. It is a casual and relaxed night where parents can meet others and particularly welcome new parents to the College.
  • Annual evening event – In the past few years the P&F has held a fun-filled Trivia Night in August. There is often a theme that inspires some amazing costumes and table decorations not to mention an atmosphere of enjoyment and good company. These nights do include some silent and live auctions to raise funds for the College. The Principal is asked for a wish list each year and funds are directed to special projects which benefit all the students but which normally are not able to be met from College Funds. Some recent projects have included a highly efficient, energy sustainable fan system for the Bowie Hall and renovation of the Kinkead Library. In 2016 the funds raised were directed towards a new mini-bus for the College benefiting all girls and staff.
  • Class Parents and Committee Members – A Class Parent system is established at the College to assist in communicating with parents and facilitating social gatherings, particularly within Year groups. Mothers can also choose to be part of the Luncheon and Supper groups and fathers can join Brigidads which meet regularly on a social basis.
  • In 2016 the Melbourne Cup Ladies Lunch was held at Cavallino Ristorante. This event was enjoyed by Brigidine women and their friends – past, present and future parents, alumni and girls from the graduating Class of 2016.

Parents may contact members of the P and F committee by email PandF@brigidine.nsw.edu.au . Details of P&F meetings and events are also contained on the College portal.
