Parent participation is critical to the effectiveness and success of the Parents and Friends.
All parents are encouraged to take an active role by supporting the various activities that may be planned each year to foster fellowship throughout the school community and to raise funds to assist the College in providing the students with a high standard of equipment and resources.
In consultation with the College, funds raised by Parents and Friends activities may be used to support the provision of: internal and external furnishings, computer equipment, audio-visual facilities, resources for the library, playground equipment, games, musical instruments, classroom and library books plus a wide range of invaluable aids to the students’ education, comfort and enjoyment.
A Parents and Friends Group has been established under the approval of the College Council and acts under the policies of the College and under the direction of the Principal. Each family unit (including carers) who has a child at the school is automatically a member of the group. Membership is also open to any person who is associated with, or has an interest in, Geelong Lutheran College.
Activities organised by the Parents and Friends group have included:
- Trivia Nights
- Special Lunch Days
- Big Screen on the Green
- Picnic on the Green
- Mother's Day Stalls
