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.
The P&C is also active in applying for local, state and federal government grants. Funds received from these grants enable the school to build better facilities for our students and run projects to improve educational outcomes.
In 2020 the P&C won grants to refurbish the library foyer and establish the Kitchen Garden and composting program.
If you have information about upcoming grants, experience with or an interest in applying for grants, please contact the P&C.
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.
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.
