St Mary’s Cathedral College’s vision sees the education of students as a three-way partnership between parents and the staff in extending each boy to be the very best cathedral man when they graduate. The college has an active Parents and Friends (P&F) association that meets twice each term. These forums are important events for the communication of the college’s plans and projects in facilitating the best possible learning opportunities for students. The forums are also used in Term 2 and 3 to provide educational opportunities that assist parents in raising young adolescent boys.
The P&F Executive consists of the college principal, assistant principal and elected parents to the different executive positions. The P&F provide valuable support at different college events such as Open Day, the year 7 welcome evening, the annual college concert and the creative arts evening. The P&F conduct fundraising to run these events, as well as provide financial support to families in need in the college community. The meetings are advertised through the college newsletter as well as Compass notifications.
