P & C Association

Parents and Citizens’ Associations are established under the Education Act of WA for the purpose of supporting a strong government school system for the benefit of all students. 

The Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C Association) has been formed to support the school to achieve the aims and objectives of the school. To this end, the P&C Association operates the School Canteen, which not only provides a service to the school, but also is a source of funds, which are used to buy additional resources for the school.

P&C Association Fundraising events provide funds to buy resources for the educational programs and make improvements around the school. This additional assistance, in its various forms, provided by the P&C Association, is essential in a school such as ours. The Principal is an ex-officio member of the P&C Committee.

The functions of the P&C are to:

  • represent parents and the community on the School Board. Where a P&C exists in a school the representatives are elected by and from the financial members of the P&C.

  • parent representatives take the view of the parent body to the School Council and report back to the P&C.

  • encourage parents to participate in developing the school’s educational policy.

  • develop parent participation and involvement in the school.

  • be the forum for parents to discuss issues pertaining to the school and its community and for gathering opinion.

  • promote and support communication and co-operation within the school community and to bring educational matters to the attention of the wider community.

  • provide extra amenities for the benefit of government school students.

P&C meetings are held throughout the year. Parents will be advised of the dates through the P&C Association and on their Facebook page – Greenfields Primary School P&C
