Fathers’ Association Meeting

The next meeting will be held at 6:00pm on Thursday 2 March a link will be provided by email circulation. Our last meeting on Thursday 2 February was well attended and we thank the fathers that joined us and for taking the time to participate. We welcomed Richard Li to the committee in the role as Treasurer. Both Peter Richardson (Secretary) and Tarquin Samuels (Vice President) will continue providing excellent service in their respective roles. Ben Calloway continues his role in providing valuable assistance as our Barbecue Coordinator.

Upcoming Events

Members of the Association are invited to assist with the Welcome to New Parents event on Friday 17 February. We are seeking volunteers from 4:30pm until 5:30pm to greet new parents and to engage with new parents during social drinks and to promote the Association’s activities. The event is scheduled to conclude at about 8pm.

The Sydney Grammar School Athletics Championships is scheduled to take place at Weigall on Wednesday 1 March. The Fathers’ Association will run the barbecue for the event and we would like to invite as many fathers as possible to assist on the day. This is an opportunity to join other fathers and be directly involved in supporting our boys. Register here to volunteer. The barbecue will run from 8:00am to approximately 2:30pm. We aim to have at least 6-8 people per shift. We ask for your help to attend for at least an hour or more or the whole day if possible.

Parent Survey

We are consulting with the Women’s Association in relation to the insights from their parent survey conducted in 2022. We look forward to working together to involve the greatest possible number of parents, starting with the New Parents’ Breakfast on Tuesday 7 March and the Welcome to New Parents event on Friday 17 February.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Mr Matthew Budden
