The Association aims are:
1. To promote the interest of the school by bringing parents, citizens, students and teaching staff into close co-operation; and
2. To assist in providing facilities and equipment for the school and in promoting the recreation and wellbeing of the students at the school.
Funds are obtained predominantly through contributions from school families and profits from the school canteen. In 2020, the P&C received around than $150,000 in funds; however given the effects of the pandemic with Covid-19 restrictions and lockdowns, we are anticipating less in 2021 with the Canteen also being hit like many small businesses.
In 2020 funds raised were used for the specific support of key learning areas, technology (purchase and support), a school bus, and various student wellbeing initiatives. Each year funds are also given to the school to assist with awards, scholarships and the sponsoring of school events as well as the cost of maintaining the grounds and gardens.
Throughout the year the P&C encourages presentations by speakers, including teachers and year advisers, on topics that are of interest to the parent and community group. The regular meetings are open to attendance by all parents and other community members, they provide opportunity to learn more about the activities of the P&C, and also to provide input to areas of focus.
