Parents and Friends Network
The College supports and promotes the membership and activities of an enthusiastic and pro-active Parents and Friends Network. 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 Network has four broad and basic aims:

  • To encourage communication between parents and the College
  • To assist the College through the contribution of labour and other resources
  • To meet other parents in a social environment
  • To be a better parent through contact with other parents

The network aspires to achieve these aims through monthly meetings and forums held at the College.  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 or to simply utilise the channels of communication.  Further information is available by contacting the president of the Parents and Friends through the College Office.

Examples of some of the activities and achievements of the Parents and Friends Network:

  • Donates funds raised to the College to assist in the purchase of essential items
  • Conducts information nights on a range of topics and interests
  • Organises and runs school discos with St Joseph’s Catholic College.
