  • Organise and/or support minor and major events.
  • Raise funds for the benefit of the school.
  • Encourage participation of all parents and guardians in the life of the school.
  • Contribute to the wellbeing of the school.
  • Provide opportunities for parents to get to know each other and to be informed about their child’s school.

FACES is open to any parent or guardian of a child attending the school, or any other interested individual of the immediate school community.
