Parents’ Association

Our school is strengthened by an active and supportive parent community, which works closely with staff and students to make Box Hill North Primary School a great school. There are many opportunities for you to be involved in your child’s education as parent helpers in the classroom or during excursions, sports carnivals and camp.

The Parents’ Association (PA) is an extremely active body within our school community and new members are always welcome. It provides an important forum for parents to support each other and many of the school’s programs and organise fundraising activities.

As well as a monthly meeting when fundraising activities are planned, our PA also holds a weekly morning tea after assembly on a Friday. This is a popular social activity for parents and is a great way to get to know other parents (toddlers are most welcome). The Principal, David Pelosi is a frequent visitor to meetings, and is always prepared to discuss a wide range of issues.

The current PA is:

  • President – Duong Padgett
  • Vice President – Kate Hayes
  • Secretary – Brenda Byrne
  • Treasurer – Rachel McGrath
Providing a pathway for parents to be involved in supporting the school

A vital role of our PA is fundraising. Money has been raised through a wide range of activities including:

  • Annual Trivia Night
  • Mother’s and Father’s Day stalls
  • End of term hot dog days
  • Boscastle Pie drive
  • Hot Cross Buns drive
  • Entertainment Books
  • Weekly cake raffle at assembly
  • Shopping Tour
  • Bunnings BBQ
  • Cupcakes at End of Term
  • Chocolate Drive

Our Parents’ Association has provided funding towards:

  • Artificial turf in the playground
  • A marquee
  • A bike shed
  • Air conditioners
  • Sport equipment and sports tops
  • Blinds
  • Upgrading the Kindergarten playground
  • Goal post covers

Our PA is not just about fundraising and it supports our school in many different ways. Parents generously donate their time and effort to run the weekly School Canteen, Uniform Shop, school banking, and social events including Carols Night BBQ and ‘Cheers and Tears’ for Foundation (Prep) parents on their child’s first day of school.

School Assembly is held on a Friday morning from 9am to 9:30am. Parents are warmly encouraged to attend and there is a morning tea provided for parents, friends and family members after every Friday morning assembly.

Throughout the year the PA helps the school run a number of special events including Grandparents’ and Special Friends’ Day, Mothers’ Day morning tea, Fathers’ Day BBQ, and Carols Night.
