The aim of the P&C is to promote community engagement between parents and the school through opportunities to participate in a variety of activities and events. The P&C also provides financial assistance to the school through contributions to a variety of projects, such as fundraisers and annual events.

All members of the school community are welcome to attend, although voting at meetings is limited to financial and ex-officio members.

Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month during a school term, at 3pm in the school staffroom.

Office bearers are elected at the annual general meeting, which must be held within four months of the end of the financial year (31 December).

If you are interested in becoming a P&C Committee Member, please contact our President, Mel or our secretary, Debbie (contact details below).
