Your P&C is all about families, school and our community working in partnership to ensure positive educational, emotional and social outcomes for our children. We are a group of everyday parents passionate about our school and through close relationship with the school we are able to work collaboratively to provide our students with the opportunity to learn and excel in a supportive, comfortable and rewarding environment.
Your P&C welcome new members, volunteers and helpers to join in the fun and meet new people and learn new skills. Our meetings are on the 4th Wednesday every month during the school term at 6pm in the school staff room or via online platform Zoom, everyone is welcome.
Making a difference
Through the many events and fundraisers held by the P&C Association, we can make a big difference to the school. The P&C has been able to implement items such as large fans in the hall, new signage and fencing for the school, toilet block upgrades, iPad and musical instrument purchases and our latest mission which is to roll out air conditioning across the entire school. Working in partnership with the school enables us to achieve great things, all for the benefit of our students and their teachers.
Community and Events
The P&C have several partnerships with local businesses within the community and are always seeking successful and reciprocal partnerships to continue our strong community relationships well into the future.
Throughout the year your P&C organise many events to provide entertainment and unification to our students, their families and the community. As well as being lots of fun, these events raise much needed funds to support our any projects and improvements required across the school. From smaller events such as movie nights, trivia nights, sausage sizzles and working bees to our bi-annual School Fair, colour fun runs, Mother's Day and Father's Day stalls and Benowa Carols.
Volunteering with your P&C
