St Joseph's School, Stanthorpe | Living Mercy since 1875

P & F Association

The St Joseph’s Parents and Friends Association (P & F) meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm at the Administration Centre on the Primary Campus.  The Association is part of the Federation of Parents and Friends Associations Queensland, and as such is guided by the initiatives and directions that govern P & F groups in Catholic Schools throughout Queensland.  The St Joseph’s P & F provides opportunities for parents to discuss current issues at the school and in education in general.  It also is a major force in fundraising for the school, with annual activities such as:

  • Stanthorpe Show bar
  • Catering for the Palgrove cattle sale
  • Trivia Night

Recently, these activities have allowed the P & F to contribute funds towards many projects including purchase of furniture & expansion works in the prep centre, counselling resources & air conditioning in most of the classrooms.

The Association also organizes working bees several times during the year.
The current executive is as follows:

  • President: Daniel O'Dea
  • Vice President: Peter Alldridge
  • Secretary:  Julie Williamson
  • Treasurer: Kim Thiess
  • Assistant Treasurer: Jodie Cosmo
