WHAT IS THE P&C?
The P&C is an affiliate of the WA Council of State School Organisations (WACSSO). P&C’s are established under the Education Act for the purpose of supporting a strong government school system for the benefit of all students.
The P&C provides resources to the School and works closely with the Principal and teaching staff to identify areas of need.
The P&C undertakes a range of fundraising activities throughout the year and all funds generated are put back into the school. They also take an active role in developing the School Community and spirit.
The P&C is also the forum for parents/guardians to raise and discuss issues regarding the School, educational issues and policies.
WHAT DO WE DO?
The Marmion P&C manages the following:
- Operates and maintains the Uniform Shop
- Operates and maintains the Canteen
- Fundraises for school resources and equipment
- Organises social functions to bring the community together including the annual ‘Evening on the Oval’ and school discos
- Representative on the School Board
- Coordinates Class Representatives to ensure information sharing across all families
Annually the P&C requests a voluntary contribution from all families call the Technology Fund. This is different from to the annual voluntary contribution the School requests.
Money raised through this fund goes towards providing the School with computers and online learning resources for our students. The fee is currently set at $50 per student or $70 per family.
Your children are going to be part of the Marmion Primary School for many years to come and we encourage all families to get involved in whatever capacity you can.
Come along to our meetings to understand what we do, how we do it and you will find a niche to become involved in.
Volunteers are crucial to all of our operations, whether it be the canteen, uniform shop or helping set up a mothers day stall. Please look out for the opportunity to pick up a shift where you can.
