Parent Forum Group

The PFG is a sub-committee of the BHS P&C. The activities of the PFG are planned at P&C meetings.

Mission Statement: Our mission is to facilitate communication between the school and parents with a particular focus on education issues.

Forums: Forums will be held each term and will focus on a specific topic. Some will involve a guest speaker. The forums will be informative, relevant and be discussion based.

Communication: An email address has been created to facilitate feedback from parents and carers and to provide information about upcoming events and other relevant activities. If you wish to be included on the PFG email address list, please email bhspfg@gmail.com.
