The Parents & Friends Committee
Welcome. The role of the Parents & Friends (P&F) is to facilitate the involvements of parents in College life and to support and promote the College, its objectives, philosophies and values.
Throughout the school year the P&F hosts and facilitates a number of College events, providing parents, friends and alumni the opportunity to meet and socialise in the College environment and contribute to the many activities of interest.
The P&F is a sub-committee of the Scotch Oakburn Board of Governance. The Committee comprises of representatives across the campuses:
Angela Edwards – Chairperson, Board of Governance Representative, mother of Chloe (Year 8), Maisie (Year 7) and Mac (Year 1)
Andy Muller – Principal, Scotch Oakburn College, father of Ellie (Year 8)
Tammy Gray – Junior School Representative, mother of Mollie (Year 4), William (Year 7) and Samuel (Year 10)
Kim Archer – Senior School Representative, mother of Lawson (Year 8) and Bede (Year 11)
Claire Allen – Secretary, Community Relations Coordinator
Here are just some of activities the P&F activities that feature in the College calendar:

In addition of these social activities, the P&F facilitate parent education opportunities, known as Parent Forums. These information evenings cover a wide variety of topics, including health, welfare and education.
The P&F supports other College events and activities throughout the year, as they arise.
