Welcome from the P&C at East Victoria Park Primary School
Settling our children into a new school or sending them off to Kindy for the first time can be exciting and emotional for the whole family. Getting to know teachers and other parents plus understanding how the school works is challenging for you too. We hope that you’ll soon feel part of our vibrant school community.
If you’d like to be actively involved in the school we invite you to join us in the Parents and Citizens Association (P&C). We’re a group of parents (and staff) who, like you, want to ensure our kids have the best possible experience at school. We recognize that parents can play an important role in ensuring this.
What does the P&C actually do?
We don’t just engage in fundraising, although this is one of our most visible functions. We also organize events which encourage the school community to get together and get to know each other. We run the canteen and the uniform shop. We volunteer our time to help out with school events. The P&C has a representative on the School Council and provides a forum for parents to discuss issues relating to the school. Phew! To do all of this we need as many parents as possible to be part of the P&C so we can truly represent the school community (and have all hands on deck when we are organizing big events!).
Who are the P&C Executive Members?
You are very welcome to come along. We meet twice a term at 7pm in the Staff Room. Meetings are fairly informal get-togethers over coffee. We understand not everyone can come to meetings, so we email notices, agendas and minutes to our members to keep you informed.
Like to join?
It costs just $1 to join for a year. Come along to one of our meetings or fill in the form in the front office and leave it (with $1 in an envelope) in the special box in the school office. If you would like to help out with any of our P&C activities, please let us know — volunteers are always welcome!
We hope you and your family will enjoy your time at East Victoria Park Primary School.
