Parents and Friends

The Parents and Friends are an enthusiastic group working together for our school community under energetic and inspired leadership and our meetings and events are a great way to get to know other parents. 

Our aim is to:

  • Secure additional amenities and resources to help all students of Central Coast Grammar School achieve their full potential.
  • Provide a forum through which parents can get involved in their children’s education.
  • Encourage a greater spirit of community and service.
  • Create opportunities to develop and enjoy friendships both within and outside the school community.
  • Promote both "Friend-raising" and "Fundraising" activities.

The Parent Representative scheme (Parent Reps) consists of a small number of parents from each year group, who organise social events for that year helping parents get to know and support each other. Families have shared outings such as picnics, Easter Hunts, Putt Putt, Bowling, Movie nights, model trains, morning teas, Christmas Parties and discos. 

Happy annual community events embody the deep family spirit that exists in our school and include the P&F Welcome Cocktails where new parents and staff mix with an excited school community ready for another exhilarating school year, and the Spring Fair and Art Show, which attracts thousands of visitors to the school.

The Fathers Group gets fathers involved in the school community in the ways they enjoy. The Fathers and Children Camp allows dads, boys and girls to enjoy a fun filled weekend together away from the stresses of everyday life and the Fathers and Children Breakfast builds lasting bonds.

Vision Splendid is the current Parents and Friends major works program, an ambitious ten year generational plan to provide a unique physical environment which encapsulates the natural beauty of the School’s extensive grounds for future generations.
The P&F is very grateful to the great many parents, students and staff that take time out from busy lives to give their time, talents and treasures to contribute to the growth and development of the CCGS Community.

All are welcome to attend our Tuesday meetings in the P&F meeting room next to the Performing Arts Centre (PAC) car park.  Meeting dates are published in the school calendar.
