The Parents, Staff and Friends Association

By joining the PS&F community, you are welcomed as part of a network of parents, staff and friends who work in partnership with the College.

The Parents, Staff, and Friends Association (PS&F) is the parent body of Mancel College, which supports the school in providing facilities and educational experiences for students and builds connections within the school community. It gives the opportunity for families to stay informed about and contribute to activities at the school. Its members are parents/carers, representatives from the school, and friends such as relatives and alumni.

What is the purpose of the PS&F?

The aims of the PS&F are to:

  • Provide a forum for information and communication with the school and other parents
  • Enhance the school community through events to connect families and opportunities for participation
  • Raise Funds to support the school, such as equipment and educational tools
  • Support the class representatives to help foster connections in each year level
  • Provide a second-hand uniform shop

How can I participate in the PS&F?

There are many ways to be involved, from being a member to simply coming along to events:

  • Come along to the events we arrange for families, students and parents.
  • Assist with an event or project by joining an organising committee or volunteering to help on the day.
  • Dial into the monthly online PS&F meetings (last Tuesday of each month at 7pm) to participate or to listen to the updates from the school or committee (all parents welcome at any time).
    Becoming a Class Representative.
  • Joining the executive committee to help coordinate the PS&F.

Class Representative

Each class in Mancel College invites parents to come forward to nominate themselves as class representatives. The Class Representative’s role is to help facilitate helpful information flow to parents from the school and PS&F and foster social connections.

If you can volunteer your time to be a part of an organising committee or to help out during the day, please get in touch with us. It’s great fun and a wonderful way to meet other Mancel College families.

How can I contact the PS&F?

If you know of anyone in the College community who is interested in joining us or wants to connect with other carers/parents, please get in touch with us at psandfteam@mancelcollege.qld.edu.au
