P&C

The Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) encourages all parents, new and current, to take an active part in their children’s education. All parents are eligible to join the P&C and we welcome fresh energy and ideas to help build on the school’s success.

Members are volunteers, who willingly give their time and enthusiasm to help make the school a better place for its students, parents and staff.
