 ATTADALE P&C COMMITTEE

 The Parent & Community Association (P&C)

The P & C Association is the school’s official body for parents.  It’s made up of parents and community members who join together to ensure that Attadale Primary School continues to be a friendly, open and inclusive place for all its students and families. 

The P&C meet twice a term at 7pm in the school staff room.  All are welcome, you don’t have to be on the committee to attend, your input as a parent is always valued.  The two meetings report achievement, progress and establish direction for the P&C activities along with occasional guest speakers and the sharing of ideas. The Principal reports on the activities at the school and discusses with members in attendance, ways in which the Association can assist.  The Annual General Meeting is held in Feb/March of each year.

What does your P&C do?

We aim to help improve the school’s facilities; organise social occasions for students and families; support the school administration and teaching staff; fundraise for the benefit of the school; advocate on behalf of families; provide essential services, such as the Uniform Shop and Canteen; represent the School within the wider community and maintain the wonderful local school atmosphere. 

Specifically, the P&C provides school budget shortfall funding at the beginning of each year costing around $15,000-$20,000.  This goes towards things such as reading support programs, Mathletics, classroom merit awards/prizes, student awards and art projects to name a few.  In addition to this the P&C covers costs incurred by the school that are not covered by the education department, such as upgrades to air conditioning and IT systems and equipment; and in 2017 covered the cost of the uniform changeover.  We have also been working hard to introduce improvements to the canteen, Nature Play into the school and support the P&C edible garden.

How to get involved?

As different generations of students pass from Kindy to Year 6 and beyond, there is always a need for new volunteers to jump on board and help the P&C do what they do!  If you have some spare time and would like to be more involved in your child’s school life, please consider joining the P&C, in whatever way you can. There are many different roles and opportunities, or you may just wish to come along to a meeting every now and then. The door is always open.

Any time that you volunteer is greatly appreciated. It is also a great way to connect with the place that plays such an important part in your child’s life.  There are many events and fundraisers held throughout the year, so there are plenty of opportunities for volunteers to join in the fun! Duties can range from planning/researching a particular event; marketing; fundraising and event management.

Some of the P&C sub committees who work to achieve the P&C goals include:

The Canteen, Events and Fundraising, Attadads, Sports Commitee, Edible Garden, Nature Playground and the Art Committee.
