Our FPS community is a special one. We have so many people ready to step up and help out with our events, working bees, in the classroom, on excursions and around the school, on committees and about the grounds. We want to express our sincerest of thanks for your contributions—we cannot do it without you. Your willingness to dedicate time and energy to the school is highly appreciated.


We wanted to thank the following members of our community:

  • The awesome ‘A Fair to Remember’ committee members. We appreciate the way you were able to pull together so many activities, musicians, stalls, sponsors, etc. What a fabulous event you organised again for our school and broader community. Thanks too to the parent volunteers who helped out on the day!
  • Our ever amazing Art4All committee members—you really produced the most amazing and successful art show and community event this September. Thanks too to all the parent volunteers who stepped up and provided your expertise at the event.
  • Our Rock Trivia Night organisers and musicians.
  • Our diligent school cleaners who consistently go above and beyond to keep our school spic and span.
  • Our class liaisons, who have dutifully conveyed and reinforced school messaging.
  • Our Farmer’s Market helpers for manning the gates and organising volunteers to help out.
  • Those that ran the Election Day BBQ at FPS.
  • Our Father’s Day breakfast hosts with and Mother’s Day stall volunteers.

  • Thanks to all those who have attended excursions and sporting day events.
  • Our School banking organisers.
  • Our gardeners! Kaan’s Winya and the planted areas are looking beautiful.
