The objectives of the Shelford Parents' Association Incorporated are:

  • To raise funds for the improvement of the School's properties and amenities for the benefit and value of the students.
  • To develop positive relationships amongst the parents and between the parents and the Principal, the parents and staff, and the parents and the Board.

Class representatives play a vital role in the life of the School. By acting as a crucial link between parents, the Shelford Quaerite committee, the SPA Committee and the School, Class Representatives help to create a strong sense of community, which is one of Shelford's core values.

Second-hand uniform information

Second-hand uniform sales are planned for for every Monday from 3.15 to 3.45pm during term times (except for student free days). We will notify you of all details via Shelly. Second-hand uniforms for donation can be dropped to Reception during school hours. All items must be clean and in good condition. We will only be accepting school blazers on consignment which will need to be dry cleaned before being dropped off.
