P&C Meeting - Attendees Needed

The Associations Incorporation Act 2015 (WA) replaced the Associations Incorporation Act 1987 (WA).

The new Act commenced on 1 July 2016 which continues to provide a framework of regulation for non-for-profit organisations such as sports and recreation clubs, societies and community groups (eg P&C Associations) in Western Australia.

This is the most significant reform of the associations incorporation law since the current Act was enacted in 1987.  The aim is to bring associations in line with contemporary good governance principles and expectations.

The key reforms of the Act:

  • A three tier system of financial reporting designed to minimise the reporting burden on smaller associations, while recognising the larger associations should be accountable for the significant resources under their control.
  • Formalisation of the duties of the committee members and officers which already exist under the common law, and reflect those applicable to directors and officers of associations.
  • A dispute resolution system that requires each association to have an internal dispute resolution process.  Unresolved disputes between members and an incorporated association may be heard by the State Administrative Tribunal.
  • New measures to better protect the privacy of association members, and limits on how contact information provided by members can be used.
  • A simplified and streamlined process for associations to resolve their affairs and either wind up the association or cancel their incorporation.

The Mundaring Primary School P&C Association Inc is to adopt the Constitution prepared by WA School Council of State School Organisation (WACSSO) which has been approved by the Department of Education. 

We request your attendance at our general meeting on Monday, 28 October 2019 at 7pm at the school library.

A copy of our new constitution is available on the School website for your review and comments.

Please contact Yvonne Chow on 0419 838 356 if you have any queries.

Mundaring Primary School P&C Executive Committee

 


 

 The Mundaring Primary School P&C comprises:

  • parents and guardians of children attending the school
  • interested persons over the age of 18 years who have paid an annual subscription of $1

 

We VOLUNTEER our time to raise funds to help the school pay for learning resources and school structures. This benefits all students at our school.

 

The aim of the P&C Association is to promote the school through:

  • Co-operation between parents, teachers, students and members of the general community
  • Assisting in the provision of resources, facilities and amenities for the school
  • Encouraging communication, cooperation and participation within the school community
  • Encouraging participation in the school's educational policy
  • Providing a forum for discussion of school issues and gathering opinions
  • Fostering of community interest in education matters

 

At Mundaring Primary School, the P&C is interested in actively promoting a strong and vibrant school community with open, transparent lines of communication and the ability to provide our children with a first-class learning environment.

 

The success of the P&C depends on the involvement of parents and the wider school community.  A successful P&C can add immeasurably to the success and appeal of school through ensuring that students have access to the best resources available and that parents are both informed and have a voice.

 

All members of the school community are welcomed and encouraged to get involved in the P&C.  This does not necessarily mean that you have to take on an official role.
