Be part of our community

The opportunities to be a part of our school community are endless.

We are a community in which a sense of affiliation and connectedness flourishes. We boast an enviable culture that is underpinned by kindness, integrity and stewardship.

PARENTS' ASSOCIATION (PSPA)


The PSPA is run by parents for parents and remains a crucial part of our community, connecting families both new and existing through events that shape and nurture our cultural identity.

Annually, several special events are held with the aim of ‘friendraising’ while also celebrating, with our students, the Peninsula Grammar educational journey.

 

These activities include:

  • Welcome Morning Teas
  • Summer Welcome Evening
  • Mothers’ Day stall and breakfasts
  • Fathers’ Day breakfasts
  • Annual Spring Luncheon
  • Christmas Market
  • Year Level Parent Social Gatherings

 

All parents, especially those new to Peninsula Grammar, are welcome to become involved in the PSPA and its activities. It is personally rewarding to give back and know that you are making a contribution to the life of the School.
