Fundraising

 

​What would school life be like without a P&C?

Did you know that schools are not allowed to fundraise?  With limited funds available from the Education Department, the P&C with the support from parents and the local community, can assist the school to achieve a learning environment tailored to the needs of the attending students and their families.  The P&C helps to provide services, facilities and equipment for the benefit of our students and their families.
