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.
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.
