Parents & Community

Our P&C

The Parent and Citizens Association (P&C) is a group of parents and staff connected to Canning Vale Primary School and the Education Support Centre, who are actively involved in the school.

What do we do?

  • Promote cooperation between parents, teachers, students and members of the general community
  • Assisting in the provision of resources, facilities and amenities for the school or group of schools (including fundraising)
  • Fostering of community interest in educational matters.
  • Contribute to decision making at the school by representing the voice of families.
  • Coordinate School Banking service from K to Year 6 and others.
  • Organise school and community events such as Discos and the Family Picnic.

What do you get out of being on the P&C?

  • An opportunity to discuss and be involved in decision making and opportunities at the school.
  • To meet with senior staff members and other parents on a regular basis in an open forum.
  • A greater understanding of how the school functions and the policies that impact on your child’s education.
  • The reward of being actively involved in your child’s education.

What do you have to commit?

  • The P&C meets twice per term
  • At 6.30 PM on Tuesday evening at the staffroom at the school in weeks 3 and 8
  • The roles of President, Vice President, Secretary, General Treasurer and Executive Committee members are open each year at the AGM – held in March.
  • There is no pressure to do more than attend meetings – but for those who wish to contribute in other ways there are plenty of opportunities.
  • The more people involved in the P&C, the more projects we can do to contribute to our school community
  • Others choose not to attend meetings but volunteer at events throughout the year.

The P&C and is a great way to connect with the school and your child’s education by meeting with a group of active parents – who all enjoy a good laugh!
