Benefits of joining your school's P&C
Why join the P&C?
Actions always speak louder than words when it comes to valuing your child's learning. Joining the P&C is one of the best ways to show your children how much you value their education and how interested you are in what they do. By joining the P&C, you are showing your children how committed you are to helping students and your school community.
Participating in P&C activities can also help you to form friendships with other
parents/carers and feel a part of your school community.
A lot can and has been achieved through the P&C and school working together towards common goals. To continue this important work, P&Cs need people from all walks of life and with a range of talents who are committed to delivering great outcomes for their children and school. Everybody has a role to play and your ideas will be heard. The more people involved, the more exciting and successful it will be. And research shows that children perform better at school when their parents are involved in their education.
The P&C is about people just like you – parents, care-givers and community-minded people who want to help their school. P&Cs work very closely with the school, building a stronger school community where all children benefit.
