Siena College and Primary P&F are standalone associations. The structure of the College P&F provides scope for meeting the needs of parents of adolescents where meetings focus on relevant areas such as learning and achievement, mental health, safety and wellbeing.
A P&F Levy is payable by each family ($185 in 2018) to fund projects. This is a considerable figure but the P&F does not call on families for additional funding activities and is only payable once, even if you have children in both the Primary school and the College.
Students who are selected to represent the Sunshine Coast and/or State/National sport teams (sport teams must be through the Queensland School Sports pathway) are invited to apply for a subsidy from the P&F as the costs of attending such events is high. Refer to the Siena P&F Financial Assistance Funding Application and Criteria for information and subsidy amounts.
