Beaufort Secondary College Parents and Friends' Association support the College wherever we can. PFA is the fundraising arm of the College. Funds raised are used to support extra resources for the College as required. The main fundraiser of PFA is the biannual Debutante Ball. On the alternate years, BeauGala, the College Fete is held. Parents and Friends meet once a month in the School Library.
As School Principal, Mr. Schier attends all meetings. PFA is a great opportunity for parents to gain an insight into the school, keep up to date with school happenings and to offer a parent's perspective on current issues. PFA also hold a place on School Council.
Can you help? PFA is a small, happy, supportive committee. New members are very welcome.
If you would like any further information, please contact Angela on 0439 565 468.
