Welcome New & Returning Families
The P&C is the Parents and Citizen's Association and is a way for members of the school community to make a contribution to the enhancement and development of the School.
One of the key outputs of the P&C is fundraising, which we do through a range of events and services such as BBQs, parent nights, raffles and in-school events for the students. These events help to strengthen our community environment but more importantly raise funds that provide extra school resources, such as specialised school equipment and new playground facilities. We also support STEM, music, sport, wellbeing and academic programs.
As a volunteer organisation we are always looking for people to get involved. There are many ways parents and carers can contribute either by volunteering on a Committee or helping out at events. Sometimes an hour is all that is needed to make a truly valuable contribution.
If you are be keen to help, please let us know. We have included a list of ways that you can help, but if you have particular skills or a fresh idea, please get in touch. Much of this work can be done from home or work. There are one-off tasks as well as ongoing contributions.
Being involved in the P&C and our fundraising events is a great way to get involved and be part of our very special community. If you'd like to help or you want to know more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
P&C meetings are an excellent opportunity to find out who does what on the P&C executive team and you will also hear from our fundraising committee, uniform shop manager, working bee and sport coordinators. Members of the School Executive including Susan Allen will also attend the meeting and Susan will give her monthly Principal's Report. It's a great way to find out what is going on at school. We currently meet via Zoom with the link sent out the day before to people who have registered.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
In early 2020 the NSW Teachers Federation commissioned an independent inquiry into the work of teachers and principals to see how their work, workloads and other pressures have changed since the last time an inquiry was conducted in 2004. The Gallop Report recommendations covered key areas such as salaries, preparation time for classes, staffing levels, career progression, shortages of school counsellors and the proposed introduction of a new curriculum. You can show your support for our teachers and the recommendations of the report here.
