Friends of Pacific

Connecting College and Community

The Friends of Pacific have an important role in building the Pacific Lutheran College community. Strong association with this group builds a greater sense of belonging for all members of the family.

A representative group of parents is elected and known as the Friends of Pacific Executive Committee that meets with the Principal and College Council representative on a monthly basis. While not a formal decision making body, the Executive Committee provides an avenue for dialogue on issues as they arise. The Chairperson also has the task of directing, motivating and coordinating the various major sub-committees of the Friends of Pacific. General meetings of the Friends of Pacific occur at least twice a term and are advertised in the College calendar.

All parents of Pacific are strongly encouraged to become involved in the association and to support the Friends of Pacific fundraisers.

Events

Two major events, the PLC Golf day and OCEANfest, feature on the Pacific calendar. Historically, the Golf Day has been held annually and OCEANfest biennially. Over the years, these two events have seen outstanding success due to the support and hard work of parents, teachers, students and the wider community including the College Council and St Mark’s Lutheran Church.

Friends of Pacific also run many support BBQ’s at College events throughout the year including the Welcome to Pacific BBQ, Open Day, Carol’s Night and various sporting carnivals. The yearly Mother’s and Father’s Day stalls are also run by Friends of Pacific.

Business Directory

The Business Directory was established by Friends of Pacific as a way to support local businesses within our community. Families of the College are able to have a listing created for a cost of $10 per annum. For more information, please contact Friends of Pacific directly at fop@pacluth.qld.edu.au.

Parent Support

To work efficiently and successfully we require the support of parents across all levels of the College community. If you have a skill that you would like to contribute from time to time, we would love to hear from you. Please contact our Chairperson, Mrs Jenny Lee, directly at fop@pacluth.qld.edu.au.
