P&F Association

Craft 'n CafeThe 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 opportunities to meet each other and share information and to become more involved with their school through a number of community-building events and fundraising activities.

The P&F is run by an Executive Committee of volunteers from the school community and is also directly responsible for the Orana P&F Shop, as well as a store of events equipment and the organisation of Class Coordinators.

The P&F supports a number of school community activities and events such as the Craft Group, Community Markets and the Spring Fair.

Orana parents and teachers are automatically members of the Association and are welcome at any of the General Meetings held monthly at the school.

For more information please email [email protected] (Please note that an email sent to this address will be received by all members of the P&F Executive Committee).

March 15 - Class 7
