The Artarmon Public School Parents & Citizens Association (P&C) offers parents and carers an excellent opportunity to strengthen the links between the school and the wider community. We welcome everyone involved with our school community to participate.
Functions of the P&C
The Artarmon P&C coordinates or directly provides services at the school in addition to raising funds that contribute to school assets and teaching resources to:
- Facilitate communication and social interaction across the school community.
- Celebrate and support the diverse multicultural community at the school.
- Promote the recreation and welfare of the students at the school
- Encourage parent & community participation in educational outcomes.
- Assist in providing facilities & equipment for the school where the need arises.
- Provide a voice for parents and the community in major decisions concerning the school.
The P&C also provides governance and coordination for the various sub committees that support the school community; canteen, social & fundraising, multi-cultural, uniform, band, strings, gardening, sustainability and traffic.
Members of the P&C
The P&C Executive is made up of the President, Vice President, Vice President (Regional), Secretary, Treasurer and Assistant Treasurer.
The P&C Sub Committees all have conveners who coordinate the various activities of their committees.
The current members of the P&C
P&C meetings are on the 3rd Wednesday of each month during term and are held in the school staffroom, at 7pm. We hear reports from the school executive (Principal, Deputy Principal, and Assistant Principals), the P&C committee conveners and general business is discussed. Minutes of each meeting including reports from each committee are published here - P&C Meetings & Minutes.
To continue to provide the services to students and parents that the school community has come to expect of the P&C, the eagerness of new volunteers needs to be encouraged at every opportunity. It is always inspiring to see parents giving generously of their time, skills and money to support the school.
