Parents and Friends

St Gabriel’s Parents & Friends Committee

The main objectives of the Parents & Friends Committee are:

  • to inspire an active interest in the life of the school,
  • to foster a spirit of positive fellowship and genuine cooperation amongst parents, staff and friends of the school,
  • to organise a variety of fundraising events during the school year which directly benefit the children and the school
  • to provide financial assistance for the development of the school’s facilities and teaching resources,
  • to provide a pathway for parents to be involved in supporting the school
  • to have fun!

The Committee plays a significant role in building the community spirit of the school. Its events and functions provide opportunity for parents and staff to gather together in a spirit of fun and friendship.

Most Importantly:

Children are First and Foremost

Parent Helpers are critical to the success of P&F fundraising events. Many hands make light work and often we need volunteers, for example, to man a stall, cook or serve at a sausage sizzle or perhaps putting up streamers for a disco night ……. All volunteers are welcome and should contact the committee.

How to get in touch:

We encourage anyone with suggestions, feedback or queries, or if you want to register as a volunteer, to please feel free to contact us:
