Parents and citizens association

Parents and citizens association

Public schools continue to provide excellent and inclusive education in a way that directly reflects and influences the community. The parents and citizens association (P&C) reflects the role of the community in the local school and provides opportunities to enjoy, learn and communicate with parents and others interested in the education of children.

Parents and citizens associations are established to:

  • Promote the interest of the school by bringing parents, citizens, students and teaching staff into close cooperation;
  • Assist in providing facilties and equipment for the school and promoting the recreation and welfare of the students at the school;
  • Encourage parent and community participation in curriculum and other education issues in schools;
  • Assist and cooperate with teaching staff at public functions associated with the school; and
  • Be responsible for the election of parent representatives to any school council constituted at the school in consultation with the principal of the school.

Who can join a P&C?

The P&C is open to everyone: parents, carers, grandparents, teachers, students and members of the whole community. By working together, people who care can make a difference.

Crucially, P&C are a window on a child's education. Participation in the education process is one of the best expressions of support you can give your child. It has the greatest impact on children's engagement with schooling and educational success.

How do I find out more?

P&C meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm in the staffroom. New parents and carers are always welcome to attend these meetings. Meetings and events are also listed in the school's newsletter.
