Welcome to the Friends of St Francis

What is the St Francis Catholic School Friends of St Francis?

The Friends of St Francis is a group of parents who co-ordinate fundraising and social events on behalf of St Francis School. We are blessed at St Francis School to have a wonderful, supportive school community who contribute to the work of the school Friends of St Francis.  The Friends of St Francis provides a means for parents and teachers to build a successful partnership, based on the best interests of the child.  By getting involved in the work of our school Friends of St Francis, parents, teachers and children benefit from the knowledge and insight shared.

Who are the Friends of St Francis Class Representatives?

Each year we ask for 2 parents from each classroom to take on the role of Friends of St Francis Class Representatives. The role of the Class Representatives is to:

  • Inform parents of Friends of St Francis initiatives / school community information
  • Seek support and help with Friends of St Francis projects
  • Attend Friends of St Francis meetings where possible (one representative from each classroom so take turns)
  • To support our teachers events in the delivery of learning programmes

The function of the Class Representative is to organise and communicate, not to take on the tasks solely. To find out who your Class Representatives are click here.

How do I get involved?

The Friends of St Francis meets monthly on the 2nd Monday of each month at 7pm in the Whanau Room. Our meetings are fun, informal and you can just come along to listen, participate in discussions or put your hand up for an upcoming event or project.

There is no formal membership or compulsory attendance – you can be involved as little or as much as works for you.
