Who we are:
We are a group of friends and parents connected with Footscray West Primary who aim to provide a pathway to support the school and its students. We organise events and deliver ongoing programs that aim to deepen our community connection and at the same time provide resources for the school.
To have a strong and vibrant parents and friends community we need the efforts and talents of all members and we would welcome your involvement and passion.
What we do:
Activities organised by the PA include the ever popular mothers and fathers day stalls, New Parents Morning Tea, the second hand uniform shop, Connector Bugs, fundraising activities such as sausage sizzles, raffles and trivia nights. We use any funds raised to contribute to projects that enhance the school community and student experience such as the grade 6 graduation ceremony, donations to school initiatives such as Orchard to Plate and by delivering parent seminars.
How can you help:
You can join the PA as a general member, stand for an elected position or just drop into a meeting. If you don’t want to be regularly involved in the committee but can assist for particular events such as used uniform shop or baking or gardening or graphic design- wherever your talent lies- please let us know. The committee meets on a regular basis to discuss events and initiatives proposed and underway. The meetings are usually in the evenings and dates will be advertised in the school newsletter.
Contact: If you would like to join, need more information or want support with a new idea, please contact us at
We also keep the whole school community aware of our activities by regularly posting in the school newsletter.
