Parents and citizens association

The Parents and Citizens association, (P&C), work collaboratively with the school body to achieve the shared goal of providing a fun, nourishing, supportive and enriched learning environment that promotes the development of outstanding citizens who are creative, innovative, critical thinkers and can collaborate effectively.

Roles 

The role of the P&C at St Marys South Public School is:

  • to support the operation of a learning environment
  • to encourage interaction of teaching staff, parents and children
  • to provide a forum in which parents and staff can exchange ideas
  • to promote the interests of St Marys South Public School and enhance its reputation and standing in the community.

The role of a P&C in Public School is a very important one.     It is the forum through which the parent body can communicate with teaching staff and the executive members of the school.

Among other things, the P&C raises money for the school through various fundraising activities. We assist in providing equipment and resources required by the school and assist in establishing school policy and management direction for the school.

Functions

The functions of the P&C at St Marys South Public School are to:

  • draw to the attention of the appropriate forum/authority, matters affecting well- being, safety or quality of education of the children at this school
  • to develop and decide the necessary resources, and their priority to achieve agreed objectives
  • to frame financial budgets and undertake the necessary additional activities to raise funds required to achieve objectives
  • to provide a canteen service in the school.

The P&C is the place to contribute to school activities and have your ideas heard on how to raise money for our school, where we should focus our energies, and any other ideas to help our school improve and grow. The P&C organise and conduct fundraisers at Easter time, Mother's Day , Father's Day , and various activities throughout the year.

We have helped the school with contributing to costs of classroom refurbishments, and project-based learning (PBL) resources.

We would like to encourage everyone associated with St Marys South Public School to be involved with the P&C and in that way to further strengthen the community bonds in the school.
