PARENT FORUM

At St Brigid’s College parents automatically become members of the Parent Forum. The Parent Forum provides opportunities for parents to support and enjoy the College through involvement in a wide range of activities. The Parent Forum also organises events for the wider College community. 

Underpinning the Parent Forum are Parent Class Representatives, who work closely with the teachers of their particular year groups and assist in communicating with Parents when necessary.

Joining in the varied activities of the Parent Forum enhances the learning experience for both students and parents by providing opportunities for parents to participate in the community life of the College.

Parent Forum – Expense Reimbursements

Please see below for documents relating to Parent Forum expenses and reimbursements:

Parent Forum Grant

What is it?

Each year the Parent Forum is given a sum of money by way of Parent contributions as part of their children’s school fees. In addition to this, the PF hold various fund raising events during the year. These funds are used to help support our Children at the College and it is expected that the funds allocated each year are spent in that year, so the Students of the Families that contributed, get the benefit of those funds. The funds are there … so we want to make sure they are spent each year.

The PF Grant can be for anything that helps support our Children, the School or engages the wider Community. It is designed to help meet those needs that are not funded by the College directly.

Who can apply

Applications are welcome from parents, students, teachers and members of the wider community.

How much can I ask for?

There is no specific limit to any Grant Application. That said, please be aware, there is a finite amount of funds that can be spent each year, so the PF will assess each application on a “first come first served” basis, along with the merits of each application.

How do I apply?

Complete the Parent Forum Grant Application Form and forward to the PF Secretary (Peta Kennedy, PF.Secretary@stbrigids.wa.edu.au).
