The College supports and promotes the membership and activities of an enthusiastic and pro-active Parents and Friends association. The College Executive considers the existence and operation of this body an integral component of open communication and parental interaction which is encouraged in the provision of education services at St Edward’s.
The St Edward’s Parents and Friends Association has four broad and basic aims:
The association aspires to achieve these aims through regular monthly meetings which are held on the third Wednesday of each month starting at 7.30 pm in the Staff Room with the Annual General Meeting held in October each year. Meetings are conducted in a relaxed and informal atmosphere and all suggestions and comments are welcomed.

All new parents to the College are encouraged to participate in the activities offered by the Parents and Friends Association or to simply utilise the channels of communication. Further information is available by contacting the president of the Parents and Friends Association through the College Office.
