Parent Groups

​​College Board

The College Board takes a pastoral advisory form; it is a significant parent group which assists the College Leadership Team with strategic and policy advice. The Board meets monthly with subcommittees meeting at other times to carry forward the business of the Board. New members are welcome with expression of interest being made using the PPP process.

Parents & Friends Association (P&F)

The St Augustine’s College Parents and Friends Association usually meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 7.00pm in the Bloxsidge Centre. All parents are members of the P&F, and thus all are welcome to attend meetings and/or participate in subcommittees and other activities.

The objectives of the P&F Association are as follows:

  • To provide a means of contact between parents and College administration.
  • To provide for the parents and friends of the College a means to meet socially and make connections, and also develop a community spirit in our College.
  • To liaise closely with the Principal and Leadership Team of the College to identify needs and establish priorities, and
  • To raise funds or provide practical assistance to provide for equal opportunities.
An energetic P&F Association is vital to ensuring a thriving College. Parents are encouraged to support P&F functions and activities, and to give serious consideration to participation on one of the subcommittees during the period your child/ren are at StAC. The Annual General Meeting is held in November each year.

To contact the P&F, please email psspringfieldpandf@bne.catholic.edu.au​

Parent Participation Plan (PPP)

St Augustine’s College P&F Association has a Parent Participation Plan (PPP) which has four important purposes:​
  1. To acknowledge the invaluable contribution that parents make to the quality of education offered at St Augustine’s College (We would have to charge substantially higher fees if we did not receive the enormous support of parents working in a voluntary capacity at the College).
  2. To establish a fair and equitable distribution of labour so that the many necessary tasks performed by parents are not left to “the same old few”.
  3. To be better organised to make effective use of our parent assistance, and
  4. To promote a stronger sense of community among our parents by working together for the benefit of the children enrolled at St. Augustine’s College.
A key feature of our PPP is the range of options offered to families, as we understand families are different and have many other competing commitments. The aim is for no family to feel they are unable to contribute to the life of the College. There is an expectation that all families provide 15 hours service to the College annually. Each family receives a PPP information package early in the school year with the expectation that a service will be selected and the form returned to the College. Parents will then be contacted at a later date by individual coordinators regarding specific tasks. PPP Documents are also available on the Parent Portal.


Class Convenors

Each year, all Prep-Year 5 homegroups nominate and select one or more parents for the role of class convenor(s). This position supports the teacher and class, including liaising with the teacher to assist with organisational matters, promotion of class identity and parent support for class initiatives. They are often administrator for the Class Facebook Group but this is not mandatory.
