Parents & Community Involvement

Yarra Hills Secondary College recognises the importance of the partnership between parents, the school and the wider community. Along with this, we believe it is also crucial to have opportunities for interested parents to contribute to the school in both official and unofficial capacities.

Parents & Friends Association (PFA)

This group is made up of dedicated parents, guardians and friends of the college. They support and promote the college by volunteering their time and resources at a number of key events on the college calendar as well as at wider community events. The PFA supports the college through a number of fundraising activities that they organise and run throughout the year. Money raised from these events supports school resources and facilities.

Music Support Group (BRAVO)

The group supports the College’s extensive Instrumental Music Program, including organising and participating in fundraising events. BRAVO has raised funds for new Musical Equipment, maintaining current musical equipment, regular overseas tours and performances as well as other important items to ensure the ongoing success of the program.

School Council & Sub-committees

Parents & Community members can be nominated and elected onto the College Council and the sub-committees. Please refer to the links below for more information on Department of Education website
