Join the P&C
Joining the Parents and Citizens Assocation (P&C) is a great way to keep informed, to contribute to the quality education of your child/ren and to make new friends. Your contribution can be as large or as small as you can manage, but your ongoing support of the P&C Assocation is invaluable.
Not only will you be supporting the school community, but you will be supported by the whole community. You can learn new skills, and gain a clear understanding of how the school is operated. This is a great opportunity to share in the school's decision-making process and shape the future.
"When parents are involved in their children's education at home, they do better in school. And when parents are involved in school, children go farther in school and the schools they go to are better." (Henderson & Beria, 1994).
International and Australian research continually shows correlations between parent/family engagement in children's education and schooling. Indicators such as:
- improved school readiness
- higher retention and graduation rates
- enhanced cognitive development and academic achievement
- higher motivation and greater ability to self-regulate behaviour
- better social and relationship skills.
All parents of children attending our school
are very welcome to attend the Parents and Citizens Assocation (P&C)
meetings. They are held on the 3rd Monday of
each month at 7.00pm in the
Resource Centre (Library) and will be
advertised in the Bardon Grapevine and also
on the noticeboard.
The agenda and minutes
are emailed out prior to meetings to P&C
members, so that all are aware of matters of
interest. If you cannot attend meetings you
are still welcome to receive all of these
emails, so that the lines of communication
always remain open.
Please don’t feel shy about attending
meetings. The members are friendly and we
welcome all parents and community
