P&C

                 


 

                           P&C association


 

In 2010 a strong and passionate group of parents joined a consultative committee to work with the foundation principal to establish the school. The committee became an interim P&C in late 2010, formalising constitutions and establishing the foundation P&C in March 2011. Find out more about the P&C and how to join.

Consultative Community

Rationale & History

To successfully start a new high school it was critical to have parents involved early. It was determined that launching immediately into an interim P&C, when not everyone knew each other well, would not be effective. Therefore it was determined to develop a consultative committee to assist the Principal in making key decisions based around some critical areas within the school.

The Consultative Committee was formed after the first public information session held on the 10th of August 2010. Prospective parents were encouraged to sign up to the committee and it was wonderful to see over 30 parents register interest. In term 3, 2010 the committee met 4 times to make decisions around a whole range of areas including naming, uniform and key policies. There were always at least 20 parents present at each of these meetings. There is still plenty of work to go, but this dedicated group of parents were invaluable in moving things forward very quickly and efficiently.

 
We have now moved to a P&C and we always welcome key community, local, state and federal government representatives.
