All current parents of Yarra are automatically members of Yarra Parents & Friends. Yarra Parents & Friends provides an important forum in which parents and friends of the School are able to meet on a regular basis. We work together to not only support the School’s programs, but to encourage a sense of community for all School families.
Parents & Friends organise morning breakfasts/coffees, parent functions, support the School Festival, Mother and Fathers’ Day stalls and various fundraising and social events throughout the year. We provide services to our School community such as a Second-Hand Book Sale at the end of each year, and a Second-Hand Uniform Shop at the School premises throughout the year.
The Pavilion Café is a new addition and provides barista made coffee and snacks for the Saturday morning sport. All funds raised through our many programs go back into our School, supporting a variety of projects from School badges to building projects. Many friendships have been made through the Parents & Friends network. if you would like to volunteer to help out at the Pavilion Café, please click here.
