Parents’ Association

IMG_1816webAs parents of Whitefriars students, we want you to feel as welcomed as your son. We believe that when your son starts at Whitefriars, so do you. With many parent-run community events, there is an opportunity for parents to be as involved as their time permits.

The Parents’ Association organises the following:

  • House Dinners – a welcome to our Year 7 families from Whitefriars and the Parents’ Association
  • Manningham Monster Raffle – raises money for the College and the local community
  • Biggest Morning Tea – in support of breast cancer research
  • Mother’s Day Breakfast
  • Grandparent’s Day
  • Father’s Day Breakfast
  • Mount Carmel Day – a BBQ for the Whitefriars community to help celebrate the Carmelites Feast Day
  • Trivia Night – sponsored by local businesses, it is a wonderful opportunity to get together and test your general knowledge
  • Parent Ambassadors – representation at social functions throughout the year
  • Year Level dinners – these are dinners arranged as a social gathering for parents

For any information about the Parents’ Association or to become involved, please email

The Parents’ Association meets monthly between February and November and warmly welcomes new members to the committee, and ideas from any member of the Whitefriars community.

“I approached the Parents’ Association because my son was the only one from his school to move to Whitefriars College and I knew no other parents at the school. The Parents’ Association helped me by introducing me not only to other Year 7 parents but parents with sons of all Year levels. As a result I have now made some great contacts within the College and its really cemented my place within the Whitefriars community. I would recommend you consider joining the Parents’ Association. It’s a great way to meet other parents within the community and support the staff and students at Whitefriars.”
