What is the P&C?

The Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C) is a group of school parents and community members who work together for the benefit of the school and its students.
The P&C Association is managed by an executive committee who work closely with the school Principal to contribute to the management and improvement of the school.

What does the P&C do?

  • Consults on school policy decisions
  • Financial planning and budgeting
  • Manages the Snack Shack and Uniform Shop
  • Student banking
  • Assists with school functions
  • Plans events and fundraising activities
  • Applies for grants

The P&C provides support in the classrooms, assists with the maintenance of the grounds, works in partnership with the principal in planning the school’s program and resources, and acts as the voice of the parents and members of the Petrie State School community.

Meetings and Membership

The P&C meets on the third Monday of each month at 7.00 pm in the Music Room. Membership is free. The P & C meeting is where we discuss our hopes, our vision, and our suggestions to make Petrie State School an even better experience for the students. Even if you are unable to attend regular meetings, being a P&C member is a great way to learn about what is happening at the school and to have your say. P&C members suggest and implement positive changes at school, and the funds raised by the P&C have a lasting impact through improvements and providing classroom ‘extras’. Everyone is encouraged to get involved in the activities of the P&C.
