Queenwood Parents’ Association
The Queenwood Parents’ Association (QPA) aims to:
- Help to enable the school’s master plan through fundraising events which help to fund projects that further enhance the girls’ learning experience
- Create a community of like-minded parents to support the school through the committee and through community events
BRINGING THE QUEENWOOD COMMUNITY TOGETHER
A strong sense of community is a striking characteristic of Queenwood and the QPA aims to nurture this and bring the school community together through its social functions, its support groups, and it’s fundraising. A range of events and services are offered each year:
- Social events and fundraising – held throughout the year
- Parent support - the QPA year reps play a key role by welcoming families to Queenwood, organising events for particular year groups and providing regular information updates
- Pre-loved uniform sale – held throughout the year

Studies have shown that the best learning happens where parents and school are working effectively together. By joining the QPA you can directly support your daughter’s education. The QPA has a strong and effective partnership with the School, and QPA activities have also generated significant funds which have been applied to a wide range of purposes across the school. Examples of how these funds have been applied in the last few years include:
- Providing significant support for Queenwood families experiencing hardship.
- Bringing artists and writers to work with the girls in special workshops.
- Significant upgrades to the audio and lighting in Astra Theatre.
- Sporting equipment
- Musical instruments
- Vege Pods for Junior School
- Noticeboards and Honour Boards
- Playground equipment and seating
The fees of members are used to welcome those new to Queenwood and build connections between all Queenwood families by:
- hosting the annual Welcome Back Cocktail Party for the parent community;
