What does the P&C do?
P&C stands for ‘Parents & Citizens’ Association. This is a voluntary group of parents who work to raise money and provide extra resources for their school.
At Mimosa Public School, our P&C is open to all parents and citizens of the school community. The P&C provides a community voice and is instrumental in making changes and suggestions that benefit the school and the students.
The P&C operate the canteen, uniform shop and band program with a combination of paid and volunteer staff. It also coordinates various social events and fundraising activities, with the funds raised contributing greatly to the resources our school provides.
Watch this short video for a snapshot of what we do.
Each year the P&C holds an Annual General Meeting in February, then regular meetings during school terms throughout the year.
One of the important functions of an Annual General Meeting is to elect the P&C Executive Committee and Sub-committee positions. These positions are held by volunteer parents who are willing to take leadership positions for the P&C. The positions are held for 1 year, up to a max of 3 years.
The Executive positions are:
Vice President (2 positions)
The other leadership positions associated with managing the various sub-committees are:
- Social & Fundraising Sub-committee
- Environmental & Sustainability sub-committee
When do we meet?
The P&C meetings are the best way to stay in contact with senior staff at the school and to stay informed with what's going on. P&C meetings are held on Tuesday night in Week 3 & Week 8 each Term. Meetings are held in the library at 7.30pm. Anyone is welcome to attend, and we encourage everyone to come along.
