Federation of Parents and Friends Association

The Federation of Parents and Friends is the diocesan body for parents in Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Maitland Newcastle.  It comprises the 54 Parents and Friends Associations from our diocesan schools who are automatically members of the Federation by virtue of the Constitution.    

Each local Parents and Friends Association is represented by two delegates at Federation meetings who have voting rights in any matters before the Federation. 

Any other interested parents are however, welcome to attend Federation meetings. General Meetings are held each term. The Federation is a member of the State Catholic Parents Body, the Council of Catholic Schools Parents (CCSP), and is represented by delegates on that body. 

Our committees include:

  • Special needs working party; and
  • Parent Education Working Party.
