P&C News

The first P&C Meeting for 2018 will be held on Friday 16 February at 9am in the Helping Hands facility. Everyone is welcome.



We would love to have some new parents join the spell-a-thon team to help our co-ordinator for 2018.  If you have a little time and would like to help please email our Spell-a-thon Co-ordinator Amy Nolan:


I have loved meeting so many new families as they have visited the Uniform Shop. 

Thank you for everyone's patience during this busy time of year. 

Our boys grey shirts have arrived and are now back in stock.


Look out for the order form coming home this week.  The order form and payment will need to be dropped to the P&C collection box by Friday 2 March.


Winter Uniforms need to be ordered on between Monday 19th February and Friday 9 March. Please note you will need to pre-order and pay for these, as we do not carry stock of our winter uniforms.  When you order, you will be able to select delivery to your child’s classroom or collection from the uniform shop.  We will receive orders back from our suppliers in Term 2, as they are made to order. Alternately, we will have a good supply of second-hand winter uniforms available from the uniform shop for $5.00 each.


The Parent Rep Scheme is a fantastic initiative as it supports and promotes communication within the school community.  We are currently seeking volunteers who would be willing to take on the role of Parent Rep for their child's class.  It is a fun role that can be shared amongst several parents in the class. If you would like to volunteer for this role please let your teacher know.  If you would like further details please email Leisa Whybird our School Community Liaison Officer at


If your child/ren had some unused stationery from last year please consider dropping this off to the stationery donation box located in the office.  Donations received will be passed along to teachers.  Thank you to those families who have already dropped items off.


Our friends at Vuly have put up their ultimate trampoline for one lucky raffle winner at the Coorparoo Carnival on 15 October 2017. Their Thunder Summer XL is their biggest springless model available, and the whole prize is worth over $3,000 – including delivery to the winner and a free Shade Cover! Vuly are based in Brisbane, and their Thunder Summer not only has a fully enclosed safety net, but the winner will also have full warranty coverage and half-price replacement parts even when the warranty is finished. This raffle prize is one that’ll be providing your family with fun for years to come.

There’s no better way to unwind after a long school day than bouncing in your backyard. Before getting started on that homework, hopping on the trampoline gets oxygen-rich blood to your brain – letting you concentrate for longer and work at your best!

The Coorparoo State School P&C aims to:
  • Provide a forum for positive discussion of educational issues, school policies, long-term planning and budgeting.
  • Welcome everyone’s views, opinions, input and suggestions and aim to make decisions on behalf of the school community, representing a wide cross-section of our families.
  • Reorganise fundraising events such as our biennial festival (fete), spell-a-thons, etc., which help the school to provide resources above and beyond those provided by Education Queensland.
  • Organise events and functions to bring our teaching staff in closer contact with our parent body, to encourage better communication and understanding of each other’s roles.
  • Represent all interest groups and specialty areas within the school. Groups and services sponsored by the P&C include the Swimming Club and Music Committee.

General Meetings of the P&C are held on the third Wednesday of each month at 7.00 pm, in the Library. We encourage you to attend these meetings, both to learn more about your school, and to have input to the decision-making process. The Annual General Meeting is held on the third Wednesday of March each year. The President’s Annual Report and the Annual Financial Report are presented at this meeting. Elections also take place for positions on the Executive Committee for the following year.

School Community Liaison Officer (SCLO)

The P&C fund the employment of a School Community Liaison Officer. It is the job of the SCLO to work towards bringing all sections of the community together in order to facilitate strong working relationships across the community and assist in the development of a rich and inclusive learning environment for our children.

These duties include promoting community building within the school, hosting social events, providing information to parents about the school and educational issues, fostering community networks, developing volunteer networks within the school and keeping lines of communication open between teaching staff, administration, students and parents. The SCLO also manages the Parent Classroom Representative Program.
