Abbotsleigh Parents' Association
The purpose of the APA is to promote friendship within the Abbotsleigh community through year group and whole school functions. The APA also provides opportunities for parents and staff to get together and meet others who take a similar interest in the School’s and their daughter’s welfare.
Year Representatives in each year organise lunches, morning teas and other events for the parents of that year. These events are a great way for parents to meet on a casual basis and build friendships.
The APA also organises larger social events, some of which generate valuable funds that are directed back to the School for projects to benefit students, parents and teachers. Each year, the APA proudly provides financial and other support for School events such as seminars for parents and Careers Night. We invite you to share any ideas about future APA events.
APA meetings are usually held on the second Wednesday of every month within the school term in the Marian Clarke building at the Senior School. All parents are automatically members of the Association and are warmly welcomed to meetings.
To find out more about the APA, volunteering and getting involved, please contact the School's Community Development Officer, Heidi Grout telephone: 9473 7736 or refer to the Abbotsleigh Parents' Association Handbook in the parent portal.

Child Protection Policy and Working With Children Check
