The Friends of Boarding seek to support the school in its aim to create a safe, nurturing and enjoyable ‘home away from home’ for our boarder girls.
The Friends of Boarding also represent an important communication link between boarders, their families and the school. The group meets regularly and is actively involved in working with staff to make the students’ time at the College a happy and rewarding experience.
Like the P&F, the Friends of Boarding also provide a friend-raising and networking forum for parents. Current boarder parents are involved in the FoB Boarder Parent Ambassador Program, assisting at College Orientation days etc., supporting new boarding families’ transition into the Fairholme ‘family’. At times, this group assists in P&F fundraising activities most notably, its long tradition of running the Boarder Cent sale at the annual Spring Fair.
Parents are invited to attend meetings throughout the year as advised by the committee.
