Welcome to the Flinders Ranges page.

Welcome to the Flinders Ranges page.

The Flinders Ranges Branch of the I.C.P.A. was formed in 1991 from the original Port Augusta branch. Instigated by Marie Spiers, Richard and Janne Warwick, it was felt there were enough members locally to form an independent branch, and after our first meeting we had 30 member families. At present we have around 22 member families.

We meet face-to-face four times each year at a different venue each time,giving an enjoyable social feel to our meetings. Often we finish with a pooled lunch or BBQ. Our AGM in December was celebrated with a Christmas/End of Year meal in Hawker.

Our branch covers a spectacularly beautiful area of South Australia that includes Blinman and Parachilna in the north, Orroroo and Quorn in the south, and Hawker is the central hub.

Students in our region are enrolled at Port Augusta School of the Air and Hawker Area School, Hawker CPC and RICE, with some Secondary students boarding away from home to access High School.

Members from our branch have attended almost all State and Federal Conferences held since our inception. Sending Delegates and Observers to conferences is a priority for our branch and has been a valuable experience for our members and the organisation. We have put forward conference motions on many and varied topics including school buses, Tertiary access, Distance Education funding...

Our members have held positions in many portfolio areas and executive positions at a State level including State President.

Each year we try to hold at least one major fundraising event. Members find these a great opportunity to get together socially while working hard to raise funds. Putting our organisational and domestic skills to good use, we have done a lot of catering including golf teas, woolshed dances and the South Australian Variety Club when they travel through our region. We do table waiting and dish washing at the annual RFDS fundraiser black tie event “Wilpena Under the Stars”. These events help to raise the profile of I.C.P.A. in our region and beyond. The money we raise has helped many local children's organisations as well as funding our conference attendants.
