Welcome to the P&F Home Page

The River School Parents & Friends Association (P&F) promotes the further improvement of the River School and encourages collaboration between students, parents and the School Community.

The P&F runs a number of events during the year that fosters the sense of River School community we love while also raising funds for the school. These events include our popular Café Nights and annual Spring Fair.

The P&F is comprised of the Committee and a Parent Representative from each class. In addition, all River School parents are automatically members of the P&F. The P&F Committee is selected at the Annual General Meeting held at the first Café Night of the year. Parent Representatives are identified in conjunction with class teachers at the beginning of the school year.

The P&F meets monthly, typically on the second Monday of the month and we welcome interest and participation from all parents and friends of the River School community. For more information, please contact pfcommittee@riverschool.com.au
