Parents and Friends

The Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School Parents and Friends’ Association (P&F) invites all parents to participate in and contribute to a host of School-related activities.

Over the last two years there has been a change to the way we interact, communicate, learn and support each other. The P&F  has also adapted and changed our focus.

During 2021, our focus was on friend and fund raising. The welcome event, inflatable sundowner, Mother’s and Fathers’ day’s events, Year 7 parent dinner and Year 11/12 parent meet and mingle, all encouraged the mixing of parents in a social setting. Our quiz night, Primary tea towel project, monster raffle and colour run raised funds for new benches in Primary, equipment for the Year 11 Common Room, hoodies for the School Equestrian team, fund for Year 12 Graduation Soiree, photo booth and memory gifts and allowed us to fund Speech Night prizes for Primary and Secondary students.

In 2022, the School will celebrate it’s 50th Anniversary. As a P&F we will work with the School to support the events that are planned, while continuing our focus on friend and fund raising.

Our Committee is keen and eager, but as always, needs the support of all our parents. We invite parents to join us at our meetings, come to events and enjoy the community spirit of the School. We encourage you to volunteer, participate and become an active member of our School community.

The P&F appreciate all input and support.

The P&F Statement of Purpose is:

  1. To promote the School as an organisation for its continued work with educating our children. We will do this by supporting any aspects of the Marketing team and School Executive that promote the value of education at Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School.
  2. To promote the sense of community within the School. We will do this by supporting and organising, as appropriate, functions and other events that facilitate the coming together of the School community – parents, extended family, children, staff – to enjoy each other’s company, share ideas and work together for the betterment of the School.
  3. To assist the students within the School community to achieve their goals and grow as a whole person to be all that they can be.

The committee is made up of parents from both Primary and Secondary, and meetings are open to all parents. They are held in the Bovell Meeting Room each month commencing at 5.30pm. Meetings run for one hour. The committee can be contacted by emailing pandf@bcgs.wa.edu.au
