Formed in 1952, Fairholme’s P&F is a support group designed to provide assistance to the students of Fairholme College through betterment of the educational environment.
It also provides a friend-raising and networking forum for parents. This occurs in a diversity of ways - through attendance at meetings, serving at school-based events, fundraising, and generally through taking interest in school activities.
Through support of the HOLMEStore ›, the annual Spring Fair as well as other fundraising activities, the P&F is able to undertake projects which provide extra resources and capital items that would not otherwise be able to be acquired through fees.
The Projects Committee meets annually to review a ‘Wish List’ generated by members of staff. In addition, sub groups may make requests from time to time for funding of items over $500.
The philosophy of making even a small difference across the entire school community is in keeping with the spirit of the P&F. As such, the P&F is unable to support individual students or small groups.
A number of sub-groups sit under the umbrella of the P&F and all seek to nurture the educational opportunities for members of the Fairholme community.

2020 P&F Spring Festival Week
Thank you to all who supported the very successful Spring Festival week, in lieu of our usual Spring Fair fundraiser. From bake stalls to parent functions, everyone pitched in to make the week a great success. Special thank you to our major sponsor, Browns Office Choice (Paula and Scott Brimblecombe), Warrego Water Services (Jenelle and Ross Ecroyd) and Ryley Jewellery Creations (Christel and Ewen Ryley).
We must also acknowledge the wonderful work of Fairholme Mum and baker extraordinaire, Rebecca Cherry, who spent hours baking pastries and bread in her kitchen. Thank you to our P&F Committee - particularly Bronte Smith, Keryn McDonald and Louise Hamilton - who insisted the show go on by thinking outside the box. Until next year…
