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 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.
There are four formal roles on the P&C, the president, vice president, treasurer and secretary. The roles and responsibilities of each position are outlined by the Queensland Council of Parents & Citizens' Associations Incorporated. The P&C can be contacted via email - email@example.com.
