P&C - Parents and Citizens Association

Forestville Public School P&C

What is a Parent and Citizens Association (P&C)?

The P&C Association is a school-based organisation with membership open to parents, teachers, students and interested citizens.

What does the P&C do?

  • Promotes the interest of the school by bringing parents, citizens, students and teaching staff into close co-operation.
  • Assists in providing facilities and equipment for the school and promoting the welfare of the students at the school.
  • Encourages parent participation in extra-curriculum activities and other educational events in schools.

P&C meetings

Forestville P&C meetings are held on Monday evenings at 7.00pm, twice per term during the school year. Everyone is welcome to attend.

These meetings provide a forum for parents to discuss the school’s operation with the school’s Principal. Other School executive members and teachers often attend and provide an opportunity to meet in an informal, friendly atmosphere.

P&C activities

The P&C activities range across a number of areas but are mainly focused on:

  • Fundraising activities
  • Organising parent-school activities to promote the School community
  • Operation and management of the Canteen – Sponsored by McGrath Forestville Real Estate
  • Operation and management of the Training, Intermediate Stage and Concert Bands
