P&C


The aim of the P&C is to increase community engagement and connection between parents and the school through opportunities to participate in a variety of activities and events.

P&C events are a great way to connect with other families, either through volunteering and working together on the event or through the social occasion itself. P&C meetings are a useful way to work together to help support the school, students and build a stronger community.

The P&C provides financial assistance to the school through contributions projects and initiatives, such as the support for the Youthcare pastoral programs, leadership initiatives, additional resources for the students including table tennis and out door chess sets, and many many others. Requests are made via an application process through the Finance committee during the year and discussed for final approval at P&C meetings.

If you would like more information please contact the President.
