Family and Friends

Enhancing the educational experience for students at Botany Downs Secondary College through voluntary service, community involvement, improvement of amenities and support with co-curricular activities.


Objectives:

  • Act as a facilitator for the college community, and the families of students, with the college, for community and parent participation and interest
  • Provide support services and functions where practical to the staff and students for various events. Where approved by the college assist with arranging of a fund raising event for the benefit of the college and students
  • A focus on community and family involvement with the college in as many ways as possible with a secondary focus on fund raising
  • Reduce the burden on staff with the provision of co-curricular and cultural activities at the college

How can I get involved?

Attend monthly Family and Friend meetings; anybody is welcome (see below). Even if you can’t make it every month, it is an ideal platform for information sharing (and to discuss any issues with the big chief - the Principal).

Not everybody likes meetings, committees etc., but just want to help when they have the time available, that’s fine, we need extra hands every now and then. Please contact any committee member, or leave your details with the BDSC reception, to add your name to the contact list, and then we’ll contact you when we need help.

Membership

Any parent, caregiver, teacher or interested person directly associated with the college may become a member. If you would like to become involved, please complete the following application form and return it to the chairperson.
