I am delighted to announce that Investigator College is now in a position to re-establish a Parents and Friends (P&F) Committee, which will play a vital role in community engagement and wellbeing. You are hereby invited to a general meeting at 4:30pm, Thursday 22 July in the Senior School, where the offices of President, Secretary and Treasurer will be elected, along with general members and Year Level representatives.
The role of President is to oversee all P&F Committee operations, chair meetings, be the point of contact to the College, provide input and feedback into College newsletters and social media, and coordinate the Annual Planning and general meetings.
The role of the Secretary is to provide an agenda, and minutes from the previous meeting, to Committee members prior to P&F Committee meetings; minute all Committee meetings; arrange a back-up minute taker if unable to attend a Committee meeting; ensure agreed actions are carried out; receive all correspondence; maintain Committee records; and maintain Committee procedures and documentation and distribute to relevant Committee members and staff.
The role of the Treasurer is to provide and explain financial reports prepared by the College to the P&F Committee and comment on financial outcomes of events/activities at each meeting.
General Committee Members / Year Level Representatives (YLR)
The role of General Committee Members / YLR is to contribute to the Committee in a constructive manner, assist with the functions of the Committee and be a contact point for parents/caregivers within the College community. All requests to Committee members / YLRs are to be cognisant of the P&F Charter objectives, with items outside of the Charter objectives to be raised directly with the College.
Membership of the Committee is open to all parents/caregivers and members of the College community, and is decided by means of a vote at the Committee’s general meeting.
Registrations of interest for one of the above offices can be made by contacting Executive Assistant Alice Hendy on email@example.com. A copy of the P&F Charter can also be emailed to you.
I hope you are able to join us on 22 July, beginning with afternoon tea.
