The P&C Association is comprised of parents and citizens who have an interest in children’s education and represent the parents and community of Orelia Primary School. Its purpose is to support the school and the students and their families.
The functions of the P&C, however are:
- To develop parent participation and involvement in the school
- Allow parents to discuss issues relating to the school and the community and gather opinions
- To promote and support communication and cooperation within the school community
- Provide extra resources for the benefit of all students where necessary
- Fostering community interest in educational matters
Joining the P&C will allow you to share in the school community and make a contribution to the education of your child. It provides a great environment to meet new people and allows you the opportunity to be informed of school news and matters. You will be able to share your expertise as part of a large decision making group that helps to link the school and the community. Your children love to see you involved in their education and it is a rewarding experience for all who join.
