Parents & Friends

The Blackfriars Parents & Friends Association is an integral part of the Blackfriars community, providing a structure for parents and others interested in the welfare of our students to plan and organise activities for the benefit of the school.

The Blackfriars Parents & Friends Association (P&F) was established in 1954. From its inception, it has assisted Blackfriars to achieve its goals by working in partnership in the education and development of students. The P&F and its sub-committees, exist for the benefit of the school – they are part of its structure; not something separate from it.

A warm welcome is extended to all Blackfriars parents to be part of the P&F Association Committee and/or it’s special interest sub-committees. Extensive research indicates that children benefit from parental involvement in school life and therefore parents are encouraged to become engaged and active participants at Blackfriars.
