What is a P&C and why should I get involved?

Parental interest is a more potent influence on children’s learning success than parents’ education or cultural background, occupation or family income level. All state schools offer opportunities for parents to join a parents and citizens (P&C) association.

These associations are involved in a variety of school activities:

  • policy development

  • financial planning (budgeting)

  • tuckshop management

  • fundraising activities

  • school and classroom functions

The functions of an association are:

  • to foster generally, community interest in educational matters

  • to encourage closer co-operation between the parents, other members of the community, and the staff and students of the school

  • to provide advice and recommendations to the principal on issues and concerns in respect to the student body and the general operations and management of the school

  • to provide or assist in the provision of financial or other resources or services for the benefit of students of the school

  • to participate in any committee or other body comprising members of the school and wider community, which will contribute to the general benefit of students attending the school

Cloyna State School’s P&C meets regularly (usually the first Friday of each month) at the school.  Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend these meetings.

Many hands make lighter work for everyone.
