All the members of the P&C are volunteers, with the exception of the Canteen Manager who is a paid employee of the P&C. The Principal is an ex-officio Member and has a very important role within the P&C to provide guidance and support to the committee. The annual subscription/membership fee to the P&C is only $1 and everyone must pay this fee when they join for the year. You can join at any time of the year, but most people join at the first meeting in February, which is also the Annual General Meeting (AGM).
The financial year for the P&C runs from January to December and at the first meeting, the AGM, we close business from the previous year, all positions are declared vacant and new office bearers are elected. The positions are; the President, the Vice-President, the Treasurer and the Secretary, plus executive committee members who are all part of the core committee. Other roles that are available are on the sub-committees of the P&C include the Fundraising Committee, the Graduation Committee, the Banking Co-ordinator and Class Representatives, plus other support roles that are vital to the success of the P&C.
The P&C meetings are held twice a term, usually on a Tuesday evening at 6.00pm and the meetings generally run for around 30 minutes. Sub-committee meetings are additional to these and are held at times convenient to the members. All parents are welcome to get involved in our events, but you are not obliged to choose an official role or join a committee. You can start out by just coming along to meetings, making new friends and learning how we achieve what we do!
