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. Recently the P&F met with College staff to fullfill the 2019 Wish List. The approvals can be viewed here:

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.
- Friends of Boarding ›
- Friends of Junior School (FOJS) ›
- Friends of Sport (FOS) ›
- Supporters of Fairholme Arts (SOFA) ›
