Our Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C) is made up of parents and carers, teachers and community members. The P&C meets regularly to contribute to decision-making, developing policies and management plans as well as fundraising.

Our school has approaching your school(PDF 102KB) guidelines that support teachers, parents and community working together for successful schooling.
