Friends of St Francis

IMG_9233.JPG​​​We recognise the important role that parents play in the lives of our students and value parent engagement in the life of the school. The purpose of Friends of St Francis is to:

  • Encourage positive relationships between families and the College;
  • Enhance how we connect with one another;
  • Offer informal social events;
  • Promote the shared responsibility for learning, recognising that learning occurs beyond the school gates;
  • Raise awareness of opportunities and resources in the school and local community.

The St Francis motto i​s ‘Simplicity and Harmony’. We believe that this approach is simple in structure and encourages harmonious relationships within our school community.  Please come along and join us in supporting the children and the College. ​

The Friends of St Francis meet once per term. Dates are notified on the College newsletter and on the College Facebook Page.
