Welcome from the Parents’ Association President 

Parkdale Secondary College Parents’ Association welcomes all students and parents for the coming year.

Our Parents’ Association plays an active role in the school community. The Association provides an opportunity for many parents to be involved in their children’s school life and to stay up-to-date with what is happening within the school.

We all know how difficult it is to rely solely on our teenage children for vital information, no matter how hard we (and they) try! Our teaching and administrative staff encourage and appreciate parent involvement in our Association. We are proud to support the learning of our children and I encourage you all to consider being a part of your child’s secondary education by becoming involved in the Parents’ Association.

The Parents’ Association is involved in many school activities.  Some of the more recent and ongoing programs we participate in include:

  • Careers Day and Information Evenings
  • Orientation Evening and Open Night
  • Rotary Events
  • Assisting with Government Funding / School Redevelopment and Upgrade.

The goal of the Parkdale Parents’ Association is to improve communication between parents, teachers and students and to assist the school by providing support to teachers and educational programs.

Currently the school receives donations from Ritchies’ Community Benefits Scheme, so that with every swipe of your card or tag at the checkout, Ritchies donates a percentage of your total shop to the school automatically every month. You can request a card or tag at your local Ritchies Store.

The Association meets once a month on the school premises and often has very informative guest speakers in attendance. It is a great opportunity to network with other parents and discuss any queries you may have regarding the school and education of your child/ren.

If you would like to become involved:

We look forward to your participation and hope you enjoy your time at Parkdale Secondary College! 

Meetings are held monthly in the school Staff Room starting in the evening. Please review the PFA meeting schedule 2021 for times.
