Parents & Friends

A truly great school attracts and nurtures great people and unites them in a common purpose – to be a leader in exceptional scholarship. Our Parents & Friends (P&F) Association is a vital part of our School community and plays a valued role in helping us achieve our School aspiration.

About the P&F Association

The P&F Association is an active group of parents and friends of the School who coordinate a range of key activities and initiatives that directly support the School. Specifically, the Association’s objectives are to:

  • Promote fellowship among the parents of students of Brisbane Girls Grammar School and friends of such parents and students
  • Promote interest in the educational activities of Brisbane Girls Grammar School
  • Raise funds for amenities and facilities for Brisbane Girls Grammar School.

The P&F Association is managed by an Executive Committee comprising:

  • Four elected office bearers
  • A number of elected members
  • Other ex officio members (including the Principal).
