Sheoak Grove P&C plays a very important role in the school and meets on a regular basis. It is a chance to meet other parents in the school and contribute to the education of your child and to the school.
If you’re interested in finding out more about the P&C and what we do, have a look through the information and/or pop along to one of the meetings. You can stay for as little or as long as you like; sit back and listen or get into the thick of it become a regular or just drop in when you can. All parents and other citizens of our community are most welcome and encouraged to attend – you will enjoy being involved with such a friendly group of people.
Our meetings are held every month in Room 16 at Sheoak Grove primary School. If you have any questions, please email the P&C on email@example.com
What is the P&C Association?
The P&C is a group of parents and community members who work together to improve our school and the school experience for our children. The P&C is also a forum for discussion and the exchange of information between parents and the school.
At Sheoak Grove Primary, the P&C, with the help of many other invaluable volunteers, manages fundraising activities such as Frosty Friday's, Sausage Sizzles, Colour Fun Run, Easter Raffle and Gift Stalls. They also host social activities and working bees.
Why join the P&C Association?
There are lots of good reasons to join the P&C. Here are a just few of them:
- It’s a great way to get to know people in the school community.
- You get to hear the reports from the Principal and the School Board representative, which give you a lot of information on what’s happening in the school, and a chance to ask questions.
- You get to have a say in how your fundraising money is spent.
- It gives you a strong connection to the school and a new network of people who care about the school, now and into the future.
