Kristin Family & Friends (KFF)

The KFF Committee is an active team of parent and staff volunteers who work with the school to organise social events and fundraising activities throughout the year. These include the Family Picnic, Ladies Champagne Breakfast, Golf Days, Balls for Parents and Friends, Art Exhibitions and the Graduation Dinner, as well as special one-off projects such as 'the Kristin kitchen' Cookbook and the Kristin Giftstore.

The KFF Committee meet at the beginning of each term. Subcommittees for specific projects are formed as required, these groups work independently reporting back at each meeting.

Class Coordinators

Every class in the Junior and Middle Schools are allocated a Class Coordinator. The Class Coordinator is a nominated parent of a child in the class. These parents play a key role in our school community by holding regular casual social events where they can meet and get to know other families and friends of their children.

Activities vary according to the age of the children - picnics, movie nights and dinners are an effective way of making everyone feel part of the school and especially important for those parents who are new to Kristin. In addition, Class Coordinators will facilitate the organisation of groups of parents who would like to attend functions together such as the Parents Ball, Ladies Champagne Breakfast or Golf Days.

Those parents who volunteer for the role as Class Coordinator are issued with a handbook, which enables them to work independently but within the framework of the school. Class Coordinators are responsible in the first instance to the appropriate Principal, and are also assisted and supported by our Director of School Relations, Pamela Peryman and her team. Class Coordinators should feel free to contact Diana Patchett, Adam Heath or Pamela Peryman if they have any questions or concerns or if they require any assistance in their roles. Handbooks are issued at the beginning of the year but replacement copies are available from the Junior and Middle School offices.

Parent Groups

As well as KFF, there are a number of ethnic parent groups at Kristin that meet regularly to exchange information and support each other in their first language. They also organise and support various school events such as the Family Picnic, International Language week and International Peace Night Concert. These parent groups also support international students who are away from their homes. There are Chinese, Korean and Japanese Parents Committees.

Prayer Group

The Mothers in Touch weekly Prayer Group is run through the school Chapel and Wellness Centre.
Email Rev Rodney Ramsay for more information and meeting times.
