Parents & Friends Association

AIMS

The P&F Association consists of a very active group of parents who aim to:

  • Build a sense of Danebank community among the parents through hosting events and organising opportunities for discussion
  • Run fundraising activities that benefit all the girls. Funds raised are spent on the acquisition of musical, sporting or technological equipment, for example.

MEETINGS

P&F meetings are held on the second Monday of each month in term time, 7.30pm in Wingara. The School Principal and Head of Junior School attend and present reports on the school. All parents are welcome to attend. Being an active member helps our school, but it also provides members with friendships that develop as their daughters move through the various stages of their schooling.

MAJOR EVENTS

Annual activities include:

  • Autumn Fair and Open Day
    Usually the first Saturday in May, 9am - 4pm
    The Autumn Fair is the biggest P&F fundraiser of the year. It is a major undertaking, held in conjunction with the school’s Open Day in May each year. While a fundraiser, it is especially an event where all members of our Danebank community come together to celebrate our school, be it Old Girls, parents, students or teachers. It is also a wonderful opportunity for introducing our school to the wider community. All families are asked to support this major event. Please keep the date free and gear up to assist.

 

  • Welcome to New Parents Cocktail Evening
    Friday 18 February 2022
    This is an opportunity to welcome new families into our Danebank community in a casual atmosphere. Parents have the chance to chat with staff, P&F members and other new parents.

 

  • The Birthday Book Program (Pre-K to Year 7)
    Parents are invited to purchase a book for the Library in their daughter’s name, in celebration of her birthday. An acknowledgment of the gift is made through a book plate. The program continues all year until late November. Parents can arrange this via trybooking.com/388027
