Parents and Citizens Association

Actions always speak louder than words when it comes to valuing your child’s learning. Joining the P&C is one of the best ways to show your children how much you value their education and how interested you are in what they do.
A lot can and has been achieved through the P&C and school working together towards common goals. To continue this work, the P&C needs people from all walks of life and with a range of talents who are committed to improving outcomes for our children and school.
The more people involved the more exciting and successful it will be.

Information

We encourage P&C members to attend our monthly meetings; however we understand that is not always possible. As a P&C member you will receive emails of the minutes from P&C meetings and information regarding events and activities occurring at school. It is a great way to keep informed regarding what is happening at our school.

A voice
P&C membership is voluntary. Membership gives you voting rights and the opportunity to be involved in the future direction of the school. The P&C ratifies school policies, funding and strategic planning documents. 

Functions of the P&C:

  • To encourage closer cooperation between parents, members of the community, staff and students.
  • To provide advice and recommendations to the Principal on issues and concerns in respect to the student body and the general operations and management of the school.
  • To provide or assist in the provision of financial or other resources and services for the benefit of students of the school.
  • To participate in any committee or other body comprising members of the school and wider community, this will contribute to the general benefit of students at the school.
