As partners in the education process, parents/caregivers have a right
and a responsibility to play an active role in the education of their children.
The P&C enables parents and citizens to meet together to determine the
needs and aspirations of the school community.
P & C meetings provide a
forum for parents to learn about the activities at the school, raise concerns
and have input into the decisions affecting their children.
P & C meetings are held on the third Monday of
every month in the Staff Room. They
start at 6.30 pm and we try to be finished by 8.00 pm. We would love to see you all there.
If you have any
suggestions, questions or enquiries please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Family Contribution Scheme
One of the primary goals of the P&C is to
raise funds for our school, to ensure students receive the very best
educational opportunities. The P&C’s main form of fundraising is the Family
Contribution Scheme (or levy), where each family is asked to make an annual
payment to the P&C.
The Family Contribution Levy eliminates the need
for numerous major fundraising ventures such as school fairs, chocolate drives and raffles which require many
people to organise and carry out the work.
The amount of money we receive from these
contributions is reflected in the size of the donations given to the school
every year by the P&C. If the levy is not well-supported by parents, there
will be added pressure to fundraise in other ways, which can often be

Cash or Credit Card
In addition to the levy, the P&C holds a
number of minor fundraisers that are well established and well supported within
our school community. These events not only help raise funds for the school,
but provide a welcome service for busy families.
Tuckshop Convenor Maree O’Toole co-ordinates a
number of novelty Tuckshop days with themes, such as State of Origin (featuring
maroon and blue colour scheme), and St Patrick’s Day (green colour scheme). Mrs
O’Toole also caters for the school’s discos and co-ordinates the annual
Christmas raffle, which is run in conjunction with the end-of-year concert.
Long-serving P&C member Nicola Chant
co-ordinates the annual Mother’s Day (May) and Father’s Day (September) stalls.
These stalls are held in the Hall in the week leading up to the celebration,
and feature a huge range of gifts, ranging from $2 through to $10. Our students
love the opportunity to bring along some money and choose a gift for their mum,
dad or special someone. And our families love the fact they don’t have to make
an extra trip to the shops! The P&C appreciates the wonderful volunteers
who help with sorting and selling the merchandise.
