P & C Association


P&C ASSOCIATION

This is an important component of our school community and all parents are entitled to become members. Forms are sent home at the beginning of each year and we encourage you to become involved.

Meetings are held at 7.00pm on the second Monday night each month in the school Staff Room. Meeting dates are advertised in the Alexandra Hills State School Newsletter. Reports are also circulated to the wider community after these meetings.

The P & C actively supports many initiatives within the school each year. It also provides financial support which all students benefit from.

PARENT PARTICIPATION

Parents are often involved in a variety of ways at Alexandra Hills State School. These include:

  • In classrooms where parents work with students and help with activities e.g. cooking, craft, reading, various classroom activities.
  • Outside the classroom – excursions, book covering, tuckshop, sport, fundraising etc.
  • School based decisions – attending class meetings, P & C, review groups, input into the Annual Operational Plan, School Budget, School Vision and the Quadrennial School Review.

Parents are encouraged to take advantage of opportunities to involve themselves in school activities which are advertised through the school newsletter. Any involvement by parents with children other than your own necessitates confidentiality for the protection of students. No discussion should take place with others about student behaviour or academic standards. This breaches this school’s code of confidentiality and ‘Code of Practice’ for volunteers.

Volunteers are asked to sign in at the office each time they assist at the school and collect a
‘Volunteers’ badge. This ensures that we have only authorised people on site and have knowledge of who they are. This is designed to protect students and ensure their safety.
