Telephone02 4929 2911

The Parents & Citizens Association (P&C) is responsible for fund raising activities for the school.  The P&C is made up of parent volunteers, the school Principal and teachers. 

The money raised by the P&C goes towards physical upgrades to the school, as well as to enhance learning environments and providing resources for our students.  Some of the items funded by the P&C include outdoor play equipment, subscriptions to Mathletics and Reading Eggs, kinder outdoor play resources, financial assistance to the school band, dance troupe and choir and the purchase of educational apps for school iPads.

The P&C owns and runs the OOSH (Out of School Hours care) and the Canteen, and all profits are used for the benefit of the school and the students. 

The P&C puts on a number of events during the year such as School Discos, Golf Days, a Mother's / Father's Day Stalls, discos, movie nights and Election BBQs. 

The P&C meets on Mondays at 5.30pm at Newcastle Surf Club in Week 3 and Week 8 of each term.  The AGM is held in the first meeting of year.  Anyone is welcome to attend P&C meetings and all P&C activities rely upon volunteers, especially to assist in the canteen.
