TSS Parents and Friends (TSS P&F) is an Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) registered association which represents all the parents and friends of the school and acts in their interests and on their behalf.
The TSS P&F exists to support the school community and is involved in the life of the school. The TSS P&F plays a significant role in the development of a collaborative and cooperative school community where parents and friends are recognised as authentic partners, with teachers and the administration, in the education of the young men at TSS
The TSS P&F is a large group of volunteers, spread across fifteen individual support groups covering all areas of sport and extracurricular activity at the school. Each support group is represented by their own Office Bearers and other involved parents and friends who form the larger Not-for-Profit Charity that is the TSS Parents and Friends Association Inc.
While the individual support groups represent their particular sport or area of TSS, the P&F umbrella organisation provides services to all the support groups and also supports other activities and programs that do not have a dedicated support group, to deliver day to day benefits to all the students of TSS.
The TSS P&F has responsibilities that include the operation of the TSS Store which provides uniform and other retail products to the school community, income from which is distributed to the support groups to invest directly in their sport, as well as supporting small capital projects and the Deputy Headmasters Tutoring Program.
The TSS P&F also underwrites the support of the TSS Indigenous Program that is facilitated through the support group – Handup. The P&F, through the TSS Store, receives donated second-hand uniform. 100% of all income derived from the sale of second-hand uniforms goes directly to this program.
Provided by TSS, the P&F operates with a full-time (term time) P&F Liaison Officer, to assist our registered charity, in the management and delivery of all the requirements of the P&F and its support groups, the school, the school council and our constitution.
The P&F meets monthly term time, where parents and friends of The Southport School are welcome. Check the Master Calendar for meeting dates.
