P&C

 

The P&C has an important role in providing a forum in which parents can develop their partnership with the school and articulate their aspirations for their children’s education.
Karalee State School Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) is run by the volunteer parents and community members of our school.  Meetings are held during school terms and attend on a voluntary basis.  All parents are encouraged to come to any of our meetings.
All fundraising activities rely on time that is given freely by parents and community members.  We encourage all of our parents to become involved and assist in the preparation or participation in these events.
The objectives of the Association are to
  • promote the interests and facilitate the development and
  • further improvement of Karalee State School.

Purpose of the P&C

In accordance with the Karalee State School P&C Constitution, the purpose of the P&C is to promote the interests of and facilitate the development and further improvement of the school.  This can be done by:
  • Providing adequate resources and learning materials to all rooms/facilities to enhance our children’s learning in a positive and productive way
  • Optimising and enhancing the current use of infrastructure and facilities
  • Communicating the fundraising needs based on the long-term plans for the school, detailing why the money is required and how it will be spent, and being accountable for the spend;
  • Providing a forum for school community issues to be raised
  • Providing opportunities for the school community to celebrate together.

Goals of the P&C for 2018 are to:

 
Increase attendance at P&C meetings;
  • Engage and involve more parents and students in P&C activities;
  • Consult with the school leadership team to identify short and long-term funding priorities and other projects;
  • Organise fundraising activities;
  • Consolidate the associations finances;
  • Improve governance.
 
Our P&C has a number of operations and subcommittees that operate through the association:
 
We encourage parents to come and attend meetings and be part of the association as it is a way of being involved in your child's education as well as meeting many other like-minded people.
 
The P&C Association meets on the second Monday of each month at 7.00 pm in the Staff Room (excluding School Holidays).
