P& C Associations are an officially recognised forum where anyone interested in the welfare of students attending government schools can meet to discuss educational issues.
â€œThe objects of an association are to promote the interests of the school or group of schools for which it is formed through â€“
(a) co-operation between parents, teachers, students and members of the general community;
(b) assisting in the provision of resources, facilities and amenities for the school or schools; and
(c) the fostering of community interest in educational matters. The P& C forum gives parents an opportunity to learn about the schoolâ€™s policies and programs; organising ways in which parents can share in shaping and developing school policies; bring parents together to share information and views; assist the school in building positive attitudes to students and their families; help raise funds to provide extra resources.
The Tapping P& C meet in weeks 3 and 7 of each term in the school staffroom.
