The Guildford Grammar School P & F Society is at the core of the School community. Through the Society’s sub-committees - Friends of Preparatory School (FOPS)
, Friends of Senior School (FOSS)
, Boarders Parent’s Association (BPA)
, as well as sports and arts initiatives, they provide all parents with the opportunity to participate in and contribute to a large number of school-related activities throughout the year.
The P&F’s purpose is to support the School’s focus on inspiring students to be outstanding citizens who work to create a just, loving and peaceful society by:
a) fostering goodwill between parents, staff, students of the School and the public
b) providing personal service to the School
c) seeking financial assistance for the School
d) delivering opportunities for social exchange between all segments of the School
e) actively promoting the aims and objectives of the School
The Society’s funding is derived from parents’ membership subscriptions and fundraising initiatives of the P&F’s sub-committees. Each year, in consultation with the School, the P&F establishes the purpose of these funds, delivering community and cultural based outcomes which can be seen and valued by all.
The P&F committee meets in the John Burt Conference Room on the second Monday of each month at 7.00pm.
