“Research shows that children perform better at school when their parents are involved in their education.”
Why join the P&C?
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. By joining the P&C you are showing your children how committed you are to helping students and your school community.
A lot can and has been achieved through the P&C and school working together towards common goals. To continue the great work, P&Cs need people from all walks of life and with a range of talents who are committed to delivering great outcomes for our children and school. Everybody has a role to play and your ideas will be heard. The more people involved the more exciting and successful it will be.
What does a P&C do?
The P&C is about people – people just like you – parents, care givers and community minded people who want to help their school. You work very closely with your school, building a stronger school community, where all children benefit.
The functions of a P&C are:
a) To foster generally, community interest in educational matters;
b) To encourage closer cooperation between the parents, members of the community, the staff and students of the school;
c) 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;
d) To provide or assist in the provision of financial or other resources, services for the benefit of students of the school;
e) To participate in any committee or other body comprising members of the school and wider community, which will contribute to the general benefit of students attending the school.
