Parents and Friends of Pulteney
Welcome to the Parents and Friends of Pulteney (P&FP), where parents are an important part of their children’s education, and the wider School community. Pulteney is a city school that prides itself in providing a welcoming community environment for all parents and friends.
Statement of Purpose
The Parents and Friends of Pulteney exists to bring together all members of the School community for mutual benefit.
We grow and support the community through:
• building relationships and friendships across the School;
• providing a representative voice;
• organising and hosting key events;
• raising funds for student focussed projects;
• liaising with all bodies in the Pulteney community; and
• proving an annual scholarship.
Members of the Parents and Friends of Pulteney are drawn from the broad Pulteney Grammar School community to include: current and past parents, grandparents and care givers, current and past staff, and extended family members of current and past students. Existing parents and staff are automatically members, and other friends are invited to make their interest known to the Management Committee.
