Joining the Harristown State School 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 our 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, our 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. 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 our school. P&Cs work very closely with the school, building a stronger school community where all children benefit.
The functions of the Harristown State School P&C are:
to foster general community interest in educational matters
to encourage closer cooperation between the parents of students attending the school, members of the community, the staff and students of the school
to provide advice and recommendations to the Principal on issues and concerns in respect to the student body and the general operations and management of the school
to provide or assist in the provision of financial or other resources or services for the benefit of students of the school
