Nossal's PFA runs on funds collected through donations from the uniform shop, Bunnings BBQs and through various events organized like Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day etc. The funds are used for number of good causes that help the school, teachers, students, and the community. Based on the discussions at the last PFA meetings, we are happy to announce that we are able to contribute funds towards the following projects for 2022.
- Outdoor furniture and shading are proposed and has been accepted. PFA will contribute ~ $9,500 towards the furniture.
- Sir Gustav Nossal Statue - $5,000 towards the statue.
- The Students at the School have put a proposal for a mural that will go on the shed wall at the back of the school. PFA will donate ~ $5,000 and this will be finalized once a quotation is put forward.
If you have any other projects that you would like to discuss, please feel free to bring to the PFA meeting and we are more than happy to discuss.
This Term we had the Mother’s Day stall. Huge thanks to all our PFA Volunteers for their support.

- books will be $1 or $2, and we will do $5 or $10 deals if multiple books are purchased

Meet Our Members
We asked Larry, a long time PFA member, to talk about his experience in the committee so far:
1. How long have you been involved in PFA
2. What made you join the PFA
3. Have you volunteered in any PFA events? If so, which one would be your favourite?
4. What do you like about the PFA so far?
5. If you could improve one thing about the association, what would it be?
Lastly, what would you like to tell about the new parents about joining the PFA.
My wife Rosaline and I have been members since our son Joshua started at Nossal 8 years ago. We joined the PFA because we wanted to get a better understanding of how Nossal worked and to be involved with our sons school and make a contribution. Of course, my favourite would have to be the Bunnings BBQ. It is loads of fun and I'm a control freak. What I like about the PFA, and the friendships Rose and I have developed. I suppose that improving communications between new parents and the established ones. Join up, don't be scared, you only do what you can do, and no Larry doesn't bite.
