Community Association

​​​​​​All schools need a link between parents and the School Leadership Team, which in Catholic schools is generally called the Parents and Friends Association ("P & F"). We call our P&F the Community Association to remind us of the community we have been and what sort of organi​sation and community we aim to be. Whilst our school has grown, we strive to retain many of those qualities usually associated with a smaller school such as a strong inclusive community spirit.

The Community Association (CA) is the parent body within the St Andrew’s School community. Every parent who has a child enrolled at St Andrew's is a member of the CA. 

The CA is a registered association and its office bearers are elected by the members. The constitution of the association and the office bearers for the current year are listed on the Community Association page on the Parent Portal.

General meetings are held at 7pm on the first Wednesday of each month in school terms. Meetings are held in the Nicola McGovern Centre​, Year 6 learning space. Members and friends are welcome to attend meeting to contribute or to simply hear what's going on. 

To contact your CA committee please email​
