P & C

Parent and Citizens’ Association (P&C)

The functions of the P&C are covered by legislation. P&Cs promote the interests of the school. They do this through:

  • cooperation between parents, teachers, students and members of the community
  • assisting in providing resources, facilities and amenities for the school
  • fostering community interest in educational matters.

P&Cs are very highly regarded in public schools for their organisation of fundraising and other benefits for the good of the school.

P&Cs can seek voluntary contributions from parents of students at the school, and these are reflected in the contributions and charges schedule published by the school each year.

The Burbridge P&C is an incorporated body through the Western Australian Council of State School Organisations (WACSSO). They can apply for grants or funding.

Be involved in your child’s school

There are many other ways to be involved in your child’s school, including:

  • join the P&C
  • nominate to be a member of the council or board
  • bring along your skills to a ‘busy bee’
  • attend school assemblies and special occasions, P&C and council or board meetings – everyone is welcome help to organise fundraising initiatives.
