What is the P&C Association?
The P&C is a group of parents and community members who work together to improve our school and the school experience for our children. The P&C is also a forum for discussion and the exchange of information between parents and the school.
At Duncraig Primary, the P&C, with the help of many other invaluable volunteers, manages the school canteen, uniform shop, kitchen (vegetable) garden, the Scholastic Bookclub, school banking, safety house program, netball, and fundraising activities such as discos, cake stalls, lapathon, Easter raffle, and gift stalls. They also host social activities and working bees.
Why join the P&C Association?
There are lots of good reasons to join the P&C. Here are a few of them.
- It’s a great way to get to know people in the school community.
- You get to hear the reports from the Principal and the School Board representative, which give you a lot of information on what’s happening in the school, and a chance to ask questions.
- You get to have a say in how your fundraising money is spent.
- It gives you a strong connection to the school and a new network of people who care about the school, now and into the future.
How do I join and what does becoming a member mean?
To join the P&C, you just need to fill out a membership form and pay a contribution of between 5 cents and $1. Membership forms are also available from the office. Just sticky-tape your coin to your completed form and drop it in the P&C tray or bring it along to a meeting.
As a member, you will receive all meeting papers and other P&C information and may vote at meetings. Members are under no obligation to attend meetings or participate in P&C activities.
If you don’t want to join the P&C but would still like to be involved in some of our activities, please email us and we will put you in touch with the relevant people; or just keep an eye out for our calls for helpers in the school newsletters.
