Churchie’s Parents and Friends Association exists for the formal purposes of fostering the interest of parents in all school activities, raising funds and promoting good fellowship between parents, friends, staff and scholars for the well-being of the school.
Whilst fundraising is important, the friendships and the social network provided by the P&F are of great value in strengthening community relations.
The Parents and Friends Association, and a large number of support groups operating under its umbrella, conduct social and fundraising functions for the benefit of students and Churchie families. These activities encourage parental interaction, communication and liaison, and work together to build a genuine Churchie community.
Some of the major events include the Headmaster's Welcome to Parents held at the beginning of each school year and co-curricular end of season presentation evenings. In addition to this the P&F hosts a number of parent education nights throughout the year. These nights cover a wide range of topics and feature guest speakers who provide valuable insights that assist parents with understanding some of the challenges faced when raising children in the 21st century.
The association also provides a channel of communication between parents and the school management. To contact the P&F please send an email via our Contact Us page

Churchie Community Chorale
This fun, adult choir is for past, present, and future Churchie parents. There are two short rehearsal blocks each year, usually starting in Terms 1 and 3. Rehearsals take place on Wednesdays from 7 to 8.30 pm in the school chapel. Currently, about 20 to 30 people attend. You don't need to be a trained singer or be able to read music. The chorale performs at various school and community events throughout the year. New members are most welcome. For more information, contact Rebecca White.
