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:
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
Alloway State School’s P&C meets regularly (usually the first Monday of each month) at the school. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend these meetings.
Many hands make lighter work for everyone.
Our P&C executive members can be contacted via the school - visit our contact us page.
The department's education website provides information for Parents & Citizens Associations - to help them with procedures and processes and access to the peak body websites.
