For Parents

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:

  1. Growing parent engagement 
  2. Growing community spirit 
  3.  Fundraising 

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 on August 5, 2023. 

​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 Welcome BBQ and Disco is widely anticipated each year, and Trivia Nights have proven to be quite popular and entertaining. Once a term, on a Friday afternoon, from 3.00pm - 3.30pm, Cafe Chanel is held. This has proven to be a fantastic way for parents, new and old, to come together in a relaxed environment to enjoy a coffee, a piece of cake or slice and a chat,​ whist the children play. The refreshments are provided by the parents from different year levels each time it is held.
