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.

 

Fundraising

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 fundraising efforts have contributed to a broad range of items that have been beautiful additions to the school community, including supporting the Creative and Performing Arts program with a grand piano, the installation of three water bottle refill stations and a $50,000 contribution by the P&F to the Henderson Hall Air Conditioning upgrade (to be completed in the next infrastructure phase). 

The P&F welcomes ideas from the Macquarie community for future fundraising items and ideas.

 

Clothing Pool

The Clothing Pool is an ongoing P&F Fundraiser run by our volunteer Clothing Pool sub-committee 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.

We also have an on-site Clothing Pool once a term where you may view clothing and purchase at the time via cash, credit card or direct deposit.
