Hi and welcome to the P&C pages of the Mundaring Primary School website. We hope you find plenty of information to help you understand the role of the P&C at our wonderful school.

 

How to get involved:

 

Every little bit makes our school just that much better!

 


 

P&C Meetings

General Meetings are held twice per term in the staffroom.

Checkout the Website Calendar for dates and times. 

Come along and be part of the action!!


 

 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.
