Parents and Friends

All parents and carers whose children are enrolled at the Queen of Peace are automatically Ordinary Members of the Parents & Friends’ Association (P&F).

P&F Associations are an integral part of Catholic schools and provide a formal structure and support network for parents to participate in the activities and decision making processes at the School and to work for the benefit of the School and their children.

  • The P&F represents the interests of the whole parent body
  • It helps parents engage with the School and the education of their children
  • It works to support the School

This means that parents are partners with the teachers and the principal in the education of their children and consequently parents share the responsibility of educating their children with the teaching staff.

It is a great way to be involved in the School community, have a say and contribute in a productive and beneficial way to the life of the school for our children.

If you are interested to find out more about the QoP P&F, you can download and read the Constitution.

If you would like to contact the P&F Executive Committee, please send an email to: pandf@qopaltonameadows.catholic.edu.au

P&F social events

QoP Mums' Movie Club

We are starting up a QOP Mums’ Movie Club, where members can suggest a movie that anyone in the club might like to see. Someone might email that they’re thinking of going to a particular movie at a particular date, time and location and would anyone like to join them. If you are interested in joining the club, please send an email to the P&F, including your full name, mobile phone number, and eldest child's name and grade at QoP.

QoP Dads' Social Group

Monthly General Meetings

The P&F holds monthly General Meetings, chaired by the President or Vice-President, who are supported by a Secretary, Treasurer, Fundraising Officer, Social and Pastoral Officer and Gardens and Grounds Officer. Each of these Executive Committee Members, and all Ordinary Members, have the opportunity to attend the meetings and report on and/or discuss any pertinent issues.

Please note that all parents and carers at QoP are automatically Ordinary Members of the P&F, and your ideas, thoughts and opinions are valued. P&F meetings are a great forum to have an open, honest and considerate discussion between parents, carers and the leadership of the School.

Come along and meet some friends you haven't met yet! You will also get the chance to have a chat to the Principal and the Executive Committee.

Refreshments will be available from shortly before and throughout the meeting, and we will do our best to be finished by 8:30pm, even though we usually have a big agenda to get through!
