ABPA fathers

Abbotsleigh Boarder Parents' Association

The Abbotsleigh Boarder Parents’ Association provides an invaluable link between boarders, their parents and the School. Parents  volunteer to be Year Coordinators each year and act as vital information channels for the boarding community, as well as help organise social events, such as the immensely popular annual Boarder Parent Roundup.

ABPA meetings are held once a month at 2 pm on a Friday during term time at Wheeldon House. All boarding parents are welcome to attend. Please consult the calendar in the Parent Portal.

The Daisy Club

The Daisy Club is part of the Boarder Parents' Association and was started by a group of boarding parents who were keen to find a way for boarding families to give back to Abbotsleigh – for the benefit of our current girls as well as future generations. Since its inception in 2007, the Daisy Club has raised more than $100,000 for  a variety of projects, with both the School and the ABPA suggesting areas requiring funding.

The Daisy Club is entering an exciting new phase and there are many ways that all parents and friends of the  School can become involved. Please visit this page again soon as we will be launching a new fundraising project, Daisy Double Up, and a fun new range of bull, cow and calf magnets, so city families can grow their own herd on their fridge!

For more information about the Daisy Club, please contact the School's Community Relations Manager, Mrs Heidi Grout; telephone 9473 7736 and she will put you in contact with the Daisy Club President.
