Welcome to the Friends of Fairfield College webpage!

The Friends of Fairfield College is a group of interested parents, carers and associates whose purpose is to support the college through a combination of fundraising and active participation within the college community.  As a parent/carer of a young person attending the college, you are automatically a member of the Friends of Fairfield.  Our principal aim is to promote strong links between the college and its extended community and at the same time to help raise funds for a wide range of needs.

We are organised by a committee of volunteer parents/carers who meet once or twice a term to plan events and report on current activities. Find out more about us by visiting The Friends of Fairfield Facebook page or by coming along to one of our meetings.  We are a dynamic bunch and are always pleased to welcome offers of support and/or new members to our committee.

To find out how to get involved at a level which suits you; from simply attending ‘Friends’ events, through to fundraising or even volunteering your time, skills or talents, please contact any of the committee members by email via the addresses at the top of this page.

Every offer of support will be warmly welcomed, however much or little!

We run a monthly ‘100 Club’ to buy a share and be in with a chance of winning monthly prizes click HERE
