Thank you to parents / carers who have returned the slip indicating an interest in being part of PVF and which days are most suited for meetings. We have quite a spread of days and times where parents / carers are available, which is fantastic but also a little challenging.

It has been suggested that we rotate meeting days and times to allow those available on the different days to participate.

Being on the Axedale Primary Parents, Volunteers & Friends (PVF) committee gives families the opportunity to get involved, get to know other parents and work closely with staff at our school.We organise many functions throughout the year aimed at both children and parents. Our purpose is not always to run each activity to fundraise, but to provide an enjoyable experience for the whole school community.

PVF organise events and fundraising activities such as 

  • Mother’s/Father’s Day Stalls
  • Cadbury Easter Egg Packs
  • School Disco
  • Raffles
  • Sausage sizzles
  • Pie drive
  • Golf day
  • Quick Shear
  • Tree drive
  • Family photo sessions

We usually meet 2 or 3 times per term, at times most suitable to fit in with work/other parental commitments.

We welcome all new parents to our committee at any time (young children are welcome to be brought along to meetings), and appreciate any level of involvement you choose to have. It's a great way to get to know other people in the school community and see how much students appreciate us being there.

With primary school children, our lives are busy, but any little bit can help - whether it is donating a raffle prize, volunteering at the Mother's/Father's Day stall or cooking toast for breakfast club on a Tuesday morning, there are many different ways to contribute without compromising our other commitments. We are now reaching out to you to better understand how you feel about the PVF, how we can do better and if you may want to join us. The more the merrier!
