Parents and Friends

Community is important to us. We are partners in raising healthy and engaged students. We are proud of our vibrant community at Mansfield Steiner School and actively encourage all parents to be involved. 

Mission Statement

The Parents & Friends Committee of Mansfield Rudolf Steiner School is dedicated to fostering a strong and supportive community that actively contributes to the holistic development of our students. We strive to create an inclusive and nurturing environment where parents, caregivers, friends, and teachers collaborate to enhance the educational experience and wellbeing
of every child.

The Parents & Friends Committee (P&F) welcomes the involvement of parents, caregivers and school staff.

The P&F work on providing a positive and friendly community beyond the classroom. Working in partnership with the Principal and representing the interests of the whole parent body to benefit and enhance every student’s school experience.

The P&F fosters friendships and develops a support network within the school community by;

  • Fostering Collaboration: we aim to build strong partnerships between parents, guardians, friends and staff by working together to create a harmonious and nurturing educational environment for our students and building community spirit.
  • Nurturing Wellbeing: we promote a supportive and caring community, including welcoming new families into the school.
  • Promoting Communication: we strive to facilitate open and effective communication channels between parents, caregivers, friends and staff, ensuring that everyone is well-informed and engaged in the school community.
  • Supporting the School: co-ordinating social events for parents and children, and fundraising and sourcing grant opportunities to assist the school in subsidising events and providing a variety of additional resources.
  • The P&F Committee plan to hold two events each term: a social event for the school community to come together and a fundraising event.
  • We welcome input and work together to provide a friendly community that allows parents to be actively involved in the happenings and culture of our school.
