Parents & Friends Association


Our Parents and Friends (P&F) team are an active and passionate team who serve the school body through a variety of means.  Their purpose is to; provide support to the College in fulfilling its mission, assist in building positive relationships between staff and parents, to raise funds for specific projects for the benefit of the students, and to provide a forum for discussion for parents of students at Noosa Christian College (NCC).

Within this context, the major activities and services of the P&F are;

  1. Fundraising – The P&F raise money for additional resources and facilities that benefit the whole school. In recent years the successful fundraising activities have enabled the purchase of a state of the art portable sound system which can be utilised for school events. The major fundraising event on the P&F calendar is the Noosa Billy Cart Grand Prix (see below), held in July each year. This event brings together the school community in a fun and interactive day of billy cart racing, side show stalls, carnival rides, garage sale, market day and entertainment.
  1. NCC's P&F also manage the Canteen which operates each Friday for recess and lunch.

  2. Additionally, the P&F team manage the NCC uniform shop which enables families to purchase uniforms and accessory items for students from Kindy – Year 12 on campus. The uniform shop hours are available here

Noosa Billy Cart Grand Prix

Each year since 2004, Noosa Christian College (NCC) Parent’s and Friends Association (P&F) hosts a Billy Cart Grand Prix - an interactive and unique event on the Sunshine Coast. This event is the major fundraiser for the P&F each year and sees a great school community spirit in action to make the day such a success.

Billy Cart racing for each team consists of both time trials (one lap) and a main grand prix race (two laps). Preps and pre-preps also get to race on the day in a fun foot race with a cardboard car (one lap).
In addition to the races, attendees can also enjoy an impressive selection of amusement rides, food court, entertainment, market stalls and other fete attractions. There are also LEGO, cooking, art and photography competitions open to all students and of course the famous "Wellington vs Wellington" Race!

The next Noosa Billy Cart Grand Prix will be held on Sunday July 29, 2018.
