Friends of Weedons

Want to get to know the school community? Are you new to the area? Do you have a new Entrant and don’t know anyone yet? We can help! Come along to our monthly meetings, meet people, have fun, learn
about the school (wine and nibbles are often included) and help us provide those “extras” for our children.

Our role:

  • Fundraising
  • Organisation of social events
  • Supporting school functions

We are also called upon at times by the Board to raise funds for certain capital items. Currently the Friends of Weedons are working with the School’s Playground Committee to raise funds for a new playground.

The Friends of Weedons is our Parent/Teacher body. We work under the authority of, and with responsibility to, the Board of Trustees.

The Friends consists of four elected representatives:

Chairperson: Claire Harris
Vice Chair: Elaine Casey
Secretary: Kerilee Scott
Treasurer: Karla Harris

All our other members are volunteers. We welcome new members and would love you to join our team, ‘many hands make light work’. There are many opportunities to help out:

  • Weekly school lunch sausage cooking roster
  • Promoting and selling entertainment books
  • Manning a stall at the annual Rolleston Fireworks night, to name a few
We would like to emphasize this as being an opportunity to get to know other parents – due to our very supportive community nobody gets lumbered with all the work and we really enjoy the social aspect.
We are usually around after school - ask someone to point us out and come and say hello.
