The aim of the Denmark SHS P&C is to promote community engagement between parents and the school through opportunities to participate in a variety of activities and events. The P&C also provides financial assistance to the school through contributions to a variety of projects some of which are set at the beginning of each year such as the support for the Youth care pastoral programs.
The functions of a P&C Association are to:
- develop parent participation and involvement in the school;
- encourage parents to discuss issues pertaining to the school and its community and for gathering opinions;
- promote and support communication and cooperation within the school community and to bring educational matters to the attention of the wider community; and
- provide extra resources for the benefit of government school students.
Our regular meetings are a forum for the discussion of relevant matters and topics pertaining to your school environment. P&C meetings are held at 5.30pm on Monday nights in weeks three and eight of each term.
P&C meetings provide a great opportunity to meet other people, hear about what is going on within the school and to discuss how P&C funds could be distributed. The Principal is an ex officio (by virtue of position) member of the P&C and reports to our meetings on school activities. The P&C is an autonomous body to the school and is governed by its own Constitution.
All parents, staff and community members are welcome to attend meetings. Membership to the P&C costs $1 for the year and entitles you to full voting rights. It is a great way to find out more about what goes on in your child’s school.
The school canteen is operated by the P&C and we employ the canteen staff required to perform the operational duties. For further details about the canteen and how to place orders, please visit the canteen information page. All canteen proceeds are used to benefit your school.
The P&C provides information and resources on matters that may help parents available from the WA Council of State School Organisations and other sources.
The P&C receives funding from various sources:
- The voluntary levy included in annual school fees;
- Fundraising activities and events
