Parents Association

The Cornish College Parents Association actively supports both the school and the community through a range of social and fundraising activities organised throughout the year. 

Led by a group of five office bearers and general committee members, the Parents Association collaborates with the teaching and administrative staff to ensure there is a purpose to fundraising activities, and an opportunity to connect and develop friendships at social events.


The 2020 office bearers are:

  • Amy Jayasuriya-Clifford – President
  • Virginia Dooley – Vice-President
  • Michelle Covey – Vice-President
  • Rob Novotny – Secretary
  • Glen Dymond – Treasurer 


The Parents Association have run a wide range of successful events including Country Carnivals, Twilight Markets, Outdoor Cinema, Trivia Nights, Formal Balls, smaller events aimed at individual year levels, as well as a dinner to welcome new families, parent education forums called Cornish Conversations and an annual festive Ladies Luncheon.

In addition to these events, they run catering at various school events to cater for school families, fundraise for future projects and most importantly to create a community atmosphere. They have also produced the Cornish College cookbook, Tastes that Make a Difference.

Class Representatives

A network of parent representatives from each class support communication with families about Parents Association activities, source volunteers as needed and organise social events for their respective classes.


The families of all Cornish students are automatically members of the Parents Association and, as such, are warmly invited to attend monthly meetings. These are generally held on the last Tuesday of every month (with a few exceptions) in the school’s Atrium, commencing at 7.30pm.


The Parents Association publishes a newsletter, Cornish Connections, throughout the year, sharing details of events, activities and offers available to the school community.  Through this, details of events, activities and offers available to the school community are shared.  If you wish to submit an article for publication, please contact the newsletter editor, Rob Novotny by emailing
