PFA meetings are held every month. Everyone is welcome.
At these meetings, our fundraising events are discussed and planned.
Parents & Friends Association
The Fairhills Parents & Friends Association (PFA) is made up of volunteer parents and friends who are dedicated to raising money towards improving the facilities and resources available to our teachers and students, as well as co-ordinating social activities that bring our school community together.
The core PFA committee is elected at the start of each year and an annual membership fee of 50c gives voting rights to all members.
All Fairhills community members are welcome to attend meetings which are held once a month on Tuesdays either at 9.15am or 7pm. Meeting dates and updates about fundraising and social activities are regularly provided in the fortnightly school newsletter.
Fundraisers are varied and spread out each term. Families are invited to participate by making purchases or selling to family and friends. Participation is obviously optional for all families. Our annual fundraisers include: Walkathon, Mother’s & Father’s Day stalls, Footy Tipping, Chocolate Drive, Bulbs, Hot Cross Bun Drive and Bunnings Sausage Sizzle to name just a few.
Social activities co-ordinated by our PFA include School Discos, Welcome Morning Tea for new families and Sausage Sizzles at our Working Bees.

Why not join the Parents and Friends’ Association (PFA)?
Want to participate in our school community? Our students love to see their family and friends around the school helping out with fundraising or social events. Being part of the PFA is a great way to meet other families and make new friends within our community. All parents and friends are welcome to come along to our meetings for a cuppa, a catch up and to find out more about what we’re up to. If you’d like to become a member, you can do so at any time.
Can’t join but still want to help?
With our very busy lives, it’s not always possible to help out by attending meetings, but there are still many ways that parents and friends can help. Check out our section on the back page of the school newsletter for updated information about fundraising and social events, as well as to keep track of how our fundraising efforts are tracking.
