P&F Association

The Orana Parents and Friends Association (P&F) is a separately incorporated association which belongs to the parents, teachers and staff of Orana.

The P&F is a vital part of the Orana community.

It offers parents and friends of the school unique opportunities to meet each other and to become involved with the school through community-building events and fundraising activities.

The P&F is responsible for the Orana P&F Shop, as well as managing the hire of events equipment to Association members.

The P&F organises many school community activities and events such as the Craft Group, Community Markets and the school’s major fundraising event, the annual Spring Fair.



All Orana parents and teachers are automatically members of the P&F Association and are welcome at any of the general P&F meetings held regularly during school term.

General meetings are being held via video conference. If you are interested in attending, please email [email protected] and we’ll ensure you are emailed a link to join the meeting.

Friends of the Orana school community are also welcome to join the Association.
