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 several 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 current office bearers are Lara Sinclair (President), Felicity Meisel (Vice-President), Glen Dymond (Vice-President), Virginia Dooley (Secretary) and Dave Jones (Treasurer). 

In previous years, we have run very successful Country Carnivals, Twilight Markets and smaller events aimed at individual year levels. In 2017, events have included a dinner to welcome new families, parent education forums called ‘Cornish Conversations’ and an 80s social night and fundraiser. We also produced the Cornish College cookbook, Tastes that Make a Difference.

A network of parent representatives from each class communicate efficiently with families about PA activities, source volunteers as needed and organise social events for their respective classes.

The families of all Cornish students are members of the Parents’ Association by default 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 Dining Room, commencing at 7.30pm.


The Parents’ Association publishes a newsletter, Cornish Connections, twice per term.  Through this we share details of the events, activities and offers available to the school community.  If you wish to submit an article for publication, please contact the newsletter editor, Virginia Dooley by emailing
