It's Your P&F: Term 1 Update

Lisa McPherson, President.

From the President

Happy belated New Year! Welcome back to a new school year and a special welcome to new families who have joined Radford College this year.

It was especially lovely to see all the new families recently at the P&F Welcome BBQ on 10 March. Despite the postponement, many families enjoyed the movie, Minions, Rise of Gru, in the new venue of RA Young Hall. Everyone enjoyed the BBQ hosted by the P&F and ice creams donated by Radford Foundation. Many thanks to all the volunteers who made this event happen.

Stay tuned for an announcement in the coming months.


Applications are now open for the annual Radford Artshow to be held from 19–21 May 2023. This year we have improved the process for students in Years 4–12 to enter the competition, expanded the number of awards for students and added a special student award ceremony on 21 May. Students can get more information from their art teachers. We will soon be calling for volunteers, so please help out where you can for this wonderful event.

Student entry to display (with an option to sell) their artwork is FREE for up to two pieces of artwork.

Student artwork must be submitted to Radford art teachers by 15 May 2023. Please read the full terms and conditions of entry here.
