Spcc Port Stephens 1289

For the Whole of Their Life.

Parent Involvement


SPCC Port Stephens has an active PTF (parent, teacher fellowship) Group with meetings held twice every term, and it is a great way for busy working parents to stay in touch with events at the school.

Held at 7pm – these meetings are an opportunity to engage on a personal level with the school principal – Dr Pettersen – about the projects he is focused on and the progress and challenges the school is facing. Dr Pettersen also works with the PTF to guide our Fund Raising efforts and how best we can work with the school to make a difference.

There is no obligation for parents to take up committee executive positions on the PTF – and just being present is warmly welcomed and encouraged.

The Founders Day fair is the major fund raising initiative on the PTF Calendar– with Friday 29th March 2019 being the next big day. The 2019 event will present an exciting new format with an after school event Friday Fair, and 8pm Fireworks finale session planned. We are confident this revamp of the fair will be exciting for all involved and help to showcase the impressive progress that St Philips continues to offer children in Port Stephens.

All parents are encouraged to come along to any of our PTF meetings, and we are sure you will be enlightened with the conversation and planning activities between the Principal and the PTF.

If there are any questions please feel free to contact me by email on the following address.

Best Regards

James Kelman
