The Macquarie Parents & Friends Association
The Macquarie Anglican Grammar Parents and Friends Association (Macquarie P&F) is a voluntary group which provides a forum for parent discussion, social and educational occasions for parents, fundraising activities, and other support to the school as required.
Membership of the P&F is open to all parents and friends of students at the school from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12 at any stage of the year.
Community & Connection
The focus of our P&F is communication and connection; nurturing a friendly and welcoming community with our school families, school and the wider community for the benefit of their children’s overall development and learning.
The P&F is particularly instrumental in welcoming new parents into the school community via morning teas, dinners and social gatherings; something we have been eager to reboot since the past few years of lockdowns.
Income from fees and fundraising are used to support social and community activities and to provide resources and opportunities for enriching the environment of the school and students.
The P&F committee efforts have contributed to the installation of three water bottle refill stations, which were completed in early Term 2, 2022. The contribution of $50,000 by the P&F to the Henderson Hall Air Conditioning upgrade. These funds will be officially handed over to Macquarie when the upgrade begins.
In support of the reignited Creative Arts and Music program (that was placed on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions), our key fundraising item for 2022 is a grand piano.
The Clothing Pool is an ongoing P&F Fundraiser that offers our families an opportunity to donate second hand uniforms, which are sold at discounted prices with all money raised going to the P&F.
Run by our volunteer Clothing Pool Sub Committee, purchases are made by contacting our volunteers (via Facebay, link below). If we have what you need available, payment is made via direct deposit and items can be picked up from the school office. We also have an on site clothing pool once a term where you can view clothing and purchase at that time via cash, credit card or direct deposit.
Details for these days are located on the below P&F pages:
P&F Meetings are generally held on the Tuesday of the second week each term at 6.00pm.
All are welcome to attend meetings, and to cater to everyone’s busy lives we have continued with hosting the meetings via Zoom.
An email is sent to all parents with the meeting link and Agenda, and the following minutes will be made available on the Macquarie P&F page on the website and in the newsletter.
