Genesis Christian College Parents & Friends Association Inc. plays an active role in building strong community friendships through the activities they organise and the financial support they provide for the enhancement of student education and opportunities through fundraising.
The proceeds of many different fundraising ventures are strategically targeted and, therefore, highly impacting. Projects have included the erection of shade sails, purchasing of books, and improvement of student facilities and resources. In 2009, the P&Fs “The Cool School Program” installed air conditioners in every classroom, and during 2010 to 2013, the major fundraising focus was the construction of the College Aquatic Centre. The aquatics complex, including a 25m heated pool, 16m Learn-to-Swim heated pool, amenities block and solar heating, attests to the major contributions made through P&F fundraising activities.
Fundraising activities include, organising a biennial festival, coordinating special parent entertainment nights, selling Entertainment Books, providing sausage sizzles at College functions and manning Mother’s and Father’s Day stalls. The P&F also coordinates annual community programs such as “Woolworths Earn & Learn” and “Coles Sports for Schools” in which parental shopping habits reward or financially assist our College.
Monthly meetings provide a great way for parents to build friendships within the school community, meet the College Principal and find out about P&F activities.
