The Pittwater House Parents' Association (PHPA) is a group of volunteer parents who meet regularly to plan and organise a number of events throughout the year as well as managing the school Canteen and the second-hand Uniform shop. Whilst fundraising is our ultimate goal, we are also passionate about creating a vibrant and thriving parent community that truly reflects the School values. We want to ensure that every Pittwater House family feels welcome and is able to be involved in whatever capacity they are able to, in a fun, enjoyable and non-judgemental environment.
What We Do
All funds raised through PHPA activities are donated back to our School for the benefit of the students. The committee members are made up of parents/guardians from across the School and have the time to fully commit to organising these events & initiatives. At the end of each school year we hold an AGM to review the past year and look forward to the next. All parents/guardians from the School community are welcome to attend and hear how their contributions have made a difference.
We encourage everyone to get involved in some way, be it in the Canteen, Clothing Pool or at any of our events - as a volunteer and/or a customer! We organise for each class to have a Network Parent who will be your contact for any general questions around school life and is an essential link between the School, the PHPA & class families. We also have a Volunteer Liaison who co-ordinates the daily Canteen Volunteers and recruits the volunteers for all our events as needed.
If you are keen to know more about the parent community , please email our President, Kate Parsons at [email protected], or to get started straight away with a volunteer shift in the Canteen please email our Volunteer Liaison, Shannon at [email protected]. You can also find out what we have been up to and what's next on the calendar via our closed Facebook Group (Pittwater House Parents' Association) or on Skoolbag.
