What is the Parents and Citizens Association?
P&C’s were created and are legislated by the Queensland Government to give parents a voice in the school. We also are given the framework to raise funds for our school.
All P&Cs are provided with guidelines on how to operate by the Queensland Council of Parents and Citizens Association (P&Cs Qld).
When do we meet?
We generally meet each month through the school year in the school hall on Thursday evenings commencing at 7.00 pm. At these meetings, we provide reports on activities from the previous month including finances, reports from our businesses (Tuckshop, Uniform Shop and Out of School Hours Care) as well as fundraising events. We also receive a report from the Principal on school events and priorities.
Early in the school year, we hold an Annual General Meeting. This meeting dissolves all memberships from the previous year and accepts all new applications for membership. We also elect our Executive Members for the year, appoint our committees and working parties and set a working budget for the next 12 months. Our Audited Financial Reports are also presented at this time.

Who can attend?
Any community member is welcome to attend our meetings. Every month at the end of the meeting we invite applications for membership. Membership on the committee is open to all and this gives you the opportunity to vote on any decisions that we make. To become a member you will need to complete a membership form. Of course, you are still able to attend without becoming a member, and there is no obligation to attend every meeting we hold. All persons attending the meeting must abide by the Code of Conduct

The Executive team are responsible for managing the budget, funding approvals, HR matters and community engagement. They work with the broader association and other key stakeholders to ensure the aims and priorities of the association are upheld.

Out of school hours care - School's Out
The P&C operates a fully licensed and accredited Out of School Hours Care Facility (School’s Out) that provides care for school aged children both before and after school. School’s Out is open from 7.00 am in the morning and closes at 6pm each school day. Our School's Out Business Manager can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
School’s Out also operates Vacation Care to provide school holiday care for our school family.
Throughout the year we hold events for our school families to encourage building a stronger community and to help raise funds for the school. These events vary from discos and pool parties to adults-only trivia nights. All our school families are invited to attend, meet other families and be involved in the school.

Suggestions are always welcome for other fundraising and non fundraising events. If you have an idea or would like to organise an event please contact us.
If you would like to get involved, there are two options; Fundraising Sub Committee or being on the volunteer list.
The Fundraising Sub Committee is responsible for deciding, organising and seeking support from P&C for events throughout the year.
Volunteer List – are parents that wish to contribute but may not have time to attend meetings. We will call on parents from this list to assist with any events where we need volunteers, and you will then have the choice to participate or not.
Either of these options will be a great way for you to support your school and make new friends.
