Who are the Parents & Friends Committee?

Brighton Primary School Parents & Friends Committee (P&F) are a volunteer group. We provide a link between home, school, and community, by working to create opportunities for the community to connect and to provide support to the primary school.

We acknowledge the diversity of our parent community and offer an open and supportive environment where volunteers can build friendships, connect in the community, contribute to the school, and celebrate our achievements along the way.

We welcome and encourage all parents, carers, and grandparents to get involved in our activities through joining our committee, attending events, or supporting fundraising throughout the year. We are always keen for more people to join P&F throughout the year.

P&F meet officially every 2nd and 7th week of the term throughout the school year at 7PM and communicate regularly outside of these meetings.
