Parents and Friends

Rutherglen Primary School Parents & Friends
Rutherglen Primary School Parents & Friends Group

Rutherglen Primary School values parental involvement.

One way to become involved in our School is through our active and friendly Parents & Friends Group. Our Parents and Friends Group not only benefits students, but also enriches and contributes to the wellbeing of the whole school community through their positive interactions and support.

The Parents & Friends Group encourages social interaction, improved communication between parents/carers and the school and provides support for school events, such as Grandparent’s Day and Open Day.  They also facilitate fundraising and provide some much loved and eagerly anticipated events of the school calendar, such as the Mother’s Day and Father’s Day Stalls.

Over the last few years, the Parents and Friends Group have raised money to contribute to, among many things:

  • Take home reader books
  • Specialised equipment for student’s needs
  • Leadership badges
  • Mosaic installation in the front garden
  • Equipment for the cooking centre
  • A living gift of a plant for graduating Year 6 students


The Parents & Friends Group meets monthly on a Monday morning in the staffroom following Assembly.  To have a strong and vibrant Parents and Friends Group we need the efforts and talents of many members of our school community and we would welcome your involvement and passion.

Please contact the Office to find out the next meeting time and place or check the dates on our calendar.
