P&F 2022

Our final P&F Meeting of the year was held on Wednesday, and we would like to thank everyone who attended. The P&F is a great, and easy, way to get involved in the School and the community and everyone is welcome.

We will be transitioning out of our roles as Co-Presidents next year, after five years in the role, and the P&F will be rebuilding in an exciting new way. We hope you will all get involved in some capacity.

Some important dates for 2022

  • Camping Trips: 11-13 March 2022 and 4-6 November 2022
  • Purim Disco: Sunday 20 March 2022
  • Mother’s Day (Breakfast and Stalls): Friday 6 May 2022
  • Father’s Day (Breakfast and Stalls): Friday 26 August 2022

Thank you

We would like to take a moment to thank our P&F Executive for all their tireless work and support: Michelle Stockley, Karen Endrey, Sam Butt and Justine Hofman. Both Michelle and Karen will be stepping down, as Secretary and Treasurer respectively, after many years in their roles and we are so grateful to them for all they have done to support the P&F and the School. Thank you to Shelley Millingen for organising the amazing pre-lockdown camping trip and to Jodie Gien for offering her wonderful meditation sessions. We are very appreciative of all the involved Emanuel School families and staff members who have helped out in another year where “normal” was flipped on its head. Thank you to the beautiful group of parents who logged on to Zoom our monthly meetings – we appreciate everything you do so very much!

To those of you who enthusiastically joined in, whether it was the Scavenger Hunt or Sukkot Initiative, thank you! A special word of appreciation to Andrew Watt and Tany Milner for their constant and continued support. We would also like to express our gratitude to the wonderful staff for being so amazing in another complicated year!
