Achievements of the P&F Committee in 2019
The College wishes to acknowledge the exceptional effort of our 2019 Parents & Friends Committee, under the leadership of award-winning P&F President, Denny Piovesan.
Four members whose children include 2019 Year 12 Leavers, will be leaving the College community this year and we will miss their dedication and enthusiasm for Prendiville.
The Committee kicked off 2019 with PrendiSummerfest and the naming of the College ovals. Over 750 people from the community attended this wonderful event.
In Term 2 the P&F approved small grant funding to the value of $25,000 to College departments to upgrade lighting in the Prendiville Arts Centre and furniture and seating around the campus grounds.
The committee worked with the Leadership Team to arrange for the installation of 289 solar panels on to the Gymnasium roof in January 2020 at a cost of $116K. This is a significant environmental step forward for the school and aligns with the school’s strategic plan. As a community we should all be very proud of this.
In Term 4 we conducted our Community Grants Process which has resulted in $25K funding towards two initiatives that will be delivered in 2020. This includes a wonderful mental health initiative that will enhance the College and the day-to-day interactions that our students have, and the upgrading of the AV equipment in the Gymnasium.
The committee also revised the Constitution and a change of Name to Parents of Prendiville. This is currently out for review by the community.
