Frequently Asked Questions

How do I join the P&C?

To bring something up at the P&C, to vote or to have a say in a matter you do have to be a member, which means that you need to pay a $2 yearly joining fee.

Once you have paid this fee and attended one meeting you will have become a voting member.

How can I be involved?

  • Become a Class Parent. At the beginning of the year a new Class Parent is needed for each class. This role is easily accomplished by email and does suit working parents well.
  • Help out with various P&C fundraising initiatives throughout the year. This may include trivia nights, Mothers' and Fathers' Day events, Fresh Food lunches held at school, etc.
  • Attend the monthly P&C meetings, held every second Tuesday of the month in term time at 7pm in the school library. Everyone is most welcome!
  • Help out in the uniform shop on Friday afternoons from about 2:30pm onwards.
  • Join in the fun however you can!

How do I tackle any issues I may have?

The best policy to address an issue to do so directly by discussing it with a teacher or if required the Principal, Mrs Sue Ross. If you feel further action needs to be taken there are more formal roads that can be taken. Click here to read more about these options:

If you believe that an area of the school can be improved the best policy is to bring it to the P&C to discuss and form support to help make changes happen. These ideas and issues should be discussed with the P&C President a little ahead of the following P&C meeting.
