St Peter Chanel is fortunate to have an active Parents and Friends Association which plays a key role in the successful operation of the school. The current key objectives of our association relate to:
Parents have traditionally supported the school by providing, through the Association, assistance with finance necessary for many school and classroom facilities. These finances are raised through an annual levy and various fundraising events held throughout the year.
The Parents and Friends' major fund-raising event alternates each year between a themed Dinner Dance or Fete. 'James Bond', 'Destination Unknown', 'Hollywood', 'Grease', Black and White Gala’, 'International Food Festival' and ‘Family Food and Fun Festival’ to name a few of the functions, have all been extremely successful. The next fete is to be held in July or August, 2021.
Each year the St Peter Chanel Parents and Friends Association organise many events to bring the school and local community together. Our beginning of year family BBQ and Disco is widely anticipated each year, and Trivia Nights have proven to be quite popular and entertaining. Once a term, on Friday afternoon from 3.00pm - 3.30pm, Cafe Chanel is held. A visiting coffee van is on hand to provide the perfect coffees to complement the wonderful array of sweets provided by the parents from different year levels each time it is held. This has proven to be a fantastic way for parents, new and old, to get together in a relaxed environment whilst the children play.
