Parents & Friends
St Andrew’s Cathedral School Parents and Friends
The SACS Association of Parents and Friends (P&F) is a vibrant group of parents and guardians who are committed to building a strong school community, and to raising additional funds to support our school and students. The P&F hold a number of community (friend-raising) and fundraising events throughout the year.
Events for the whole school
The P&F organises a number of fun events during the school year. We have a busy calendar for 2019, with a number of community and fundraising events. (Please check the website and P&F newsletter throughout the year for more detailed event information).

The P&F meet regularly across the year and all our parents and carers are encouraged to attend. These meetings are a great opportunity to gain an insight into what is happening at the school. Matters as diverse as curriculum, student welfare, development at the school and topical issues of the day that affect our school and community are addressed by the Head of School or special guests.
The P&F meetings are held throughout the year on Tuesday nights at 6pm in the Community Hub on Level 4, St Andrew’s House.
Please see agendas and minutes of meetings at the bottom of the page.
Year group functions
The P&F also supports get-togethers and functions for each year group. These gatherings are organised by our Parent Convenors and provide opportunities for parents to meet informally, develop friendships and link with other families. These social events are vital in a School that draws students from over 200 postcodes around Sydney.
As a fundraising entity, the P&F has previously raised funds for a school bus, portable stage, Chapter House, Kirrikee, audio-visual equipment and a range of educational items, student welfare initiatives and facilities. All parents are encouraged to pay a small membership fee of $80 to the Association to offset administrative costs.
The work of the P&F relies completely on the input of volunteers drawn from the school community.
Many warm, lifelong friendships are made, not only among the students of SACS, but also within the parent community through their involvement in the P&F and its fundraising.
We look forward to welcoming you and getting to know you.
