Who are we?
The Lawnton State School Parents and Citizens (P&C) Association supports close cooperation between the school, parents and the wider community. The P&C members work with the Principal and school staff on behalf of the student's families to foster an interest amongst the parents in educational matters as well as fundraise to provide monetary resources for the school. We consist of numerous people from diverse backgrounds who all share one thing in common -
We do it for the Children.
What to we do?
A lot of the events and activities throughout the school year are P&C planned and managed. A few of these are as follows.
Movie Nights, Discos, Free Dress Days, the Annual Fun Run, Mothers and Father's Day Stalls, Election Day BBQ's, Bunnings BBQ's …. Just to name a few! We also manage and run the Uniform Shop and Café 4501.
In the past 12 months our fundraising has meant we could purchase and contribute to the following around our school; new ovens and equipment for Café 4501, an Inflatable Movie Screen and a large donation towards the first stage of air conditioning at the school.
How Can You Be Involved?
We are always looking for new members and volunteers to help. Even if you think you do not have the time you may be surprised. If every parent volunteered in the Café for just one day, we would have enough volunteers for a whole year! Even the smallest effort can make a huge difference. And volunteering is also an amazing way to make new friends especially if you are new to the school community. Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org should you wish to know more about volunteering and how to get involved.
We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 6pm for a 6:15pm start. You will get to find out about what is happening around the school, decide if you'd like to help and have a say when we raise important concerns. If you cannot make a meeting but would like to know more feel free to speak with any of our Executive Members. We are all volunteers and always more than happy to assist. Alternatively email the secretary as above.
Bobbi-Jo Ives – President Athena Duncanson - Secretary
