P&C

The Parents & Citizens Association meets in the school library at 7:30 pm on the second Wednesday of each month in the school term time, unless otherwise specified. The P&C contributes substantially to the life of Fort Street High School. It provides a forum which enables parents to contribute to the organisation and direction of the school.

P&C

The P&C Association is highly active. It initiates and supports programs to enhance student learning. The P&C manages the uniform shop. Fundraising for the Instrumental Music Program (IMP) is overseen by a P&C subcommittee. This subcommittee also assists in the running the IMP.

Fundraising

One of the roles of the P&C is fundraising, which is contributed to the school, to provide better facilities than government funding covers.

The funds that the P&C can make available to the school come from P&C memberships, uniform shop sales and the proceeds from events such as Fort Fest, IMP concerts and Senior Drama nights.

In 2019 the P&C gave the school more than $200,000 to provide sporting facilities, classroom technology, faculty assets and numerous other items.

Community Events

Community Events run by the P&C aim to build community awareness within the school, give parents, students and other supporters an opportunity to meet informally and to contribute to the school and to raise funds.

Meetings

The P&C holds meetings usually at 7:30pm in the school library on the second Wednesday of each month during school terms. These meetings provide an opportunity to learn more about what is happening in the school, how it operates, to ask questions and to meet other parents. The Principal usually gives an informative report on the recent happenings within the school.

Most of these meetings focus on a particular topic, which is often aimed at the parents of a particular year group.
