The Carina State School Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) is a voluntary group of  Parents of children attending our school and members of our local community who are dedicated to supporting the education of next generation. The P&C provides support and encouragement to the school so it may be a respectful, responsible and safe community of learners striving for personal best

Duties of the P&C Association

The P&C committee and members are involved in many aspects of our school ranging from:

  • Providing thoughts and feedback on issues affecting our school.
  • Supporting the Carina State School dress code (PDF, 114 KB), and operating the Uniform shop allowing families to obtain uniforms by completing our Uniform shop order form (PFD, 65KB) .
  • 'Club Munch' (tuckshop/canteen) is an initiative of the P&C members, providing a Smart Choices - Health Food and Drink Supply strategy for Queensland Schools. Tuckshop is available to the student and teachers of the school.
  • Volunteering skills and time to support our school in such ways as making costumes for school plays, recording and photography of our school play, assisting the classrooms with special events such as Easter bonnet parade, arrangement of flower bouquets on the Mother’s Day weekend and much more.
  • Supporting the Chaplaincy program.

P&C achievements

Over the past few years the efforts of the P&C with various fundraising and grant applications has enabled Carina State School to complete projects including:

  • Installing electronic Smart Board in every classroom

P&C meetings

The P&C congregates on the fourth Tuesday of each month (excluding January and holidays) from 7pm. Meetings are scheduled for approximately an hour. The environment is peaceful and friendly and we welcome and encourage all families to join our monthly meetings.

P&C membership

P&C members do not have a formal role but contribute what time and skills they are able to whether this is an hour of time here or there, to help prepare a function, or to help tidy away, all time is precious and greatly appreciated. The fundraising activities provide any opportunity to meet other parents and carers, to make new friends, learn more about our school and offer new fresh ideas.

Anyone who has a child at our school or is a member of the local community is able to join the P&C. If you are interested in joining the P&C please attend a meeting and while there complete the brief membership form.
