"Where learning makes a difference..."

Friends of the School (FOS)


We are a committee made up of dedicated parents and staff representatives. New members and visitors are always welcome to come along to any meeting!

Our role is to organise school fundraising and social events for children and families. All money that we raise is used to support and improve school resources.

We meet once a term generally the second Tuesday of the term at 6.00pm in the school staffroom, the time and date are always in the school newsletter.

Joining FOS is a great way to meet other parents and to make a positive difference at Albany Primary School.  Should you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact Jan Munroe in the school office on phone 415 9668 or email

We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting.

If you do not wish to join the FOS team but are able to help at certain events, ie discos, etc please contact the school office.
