The Parents, Teachers & Friends Association (PT&F) is an open forum for parents, staff and community members who share a common interest in the school. This group plays an active role in issues relating to the education of the boys, fund-raising, advising on general policy issues and in promoting the school.
Membership is $5 per annum or $25 one off payment that lasts for the time your son is at Farrer.
Constitution – if you would like a copy of the Constitution please contact the PT&F.
Meetings are held on the third Monday evening of each month in the Farrer Boardroom. (Start time is 7pm Terms 2 and 3 and 7:30pm Terms 1 and 4).
The first meeting of the year is a BBQ to introduce new families to each other.
Support Groups are subgroups of the PT&F based around locations distant from Farrer. The Central West Support Group based around Dubbo, the Northern Support Group based around Narrabri/Moree, the Northern Tablelands Support Group is based around Glen Innes.
Members meet the “faces” they see at school functions, share a network of knowledge and are able to represent the opinions of parents who live too far from the school for frequent visits. The groups hold meetings twice per year usually at the home of a boarder parent. The aim of the support groups are friendship, communication with the school, some fundraising and engender pride within the Farrer Community.
