A brief on the Parents & Citizens Association (P&C) of Murray High School can be found on this page.
What does a P&C do?
The P&C is about people & communities. People just like you – parents, care givers and community minded people who seek to help the community and their local school. The P&C works very closely with the school, building a stronger school community, where all students benefit.
The Function of P&C
- To encourage closer cooperation between the parents, care givers and community, the staff and the students of the school.
- To provide advice and recommendations to the Principal on issues, concerns in respect to the student body and the general operations and management of the school.
- To provide and assist in the provision of financial or other resources and services for the benefit of the students within the school.
- To participate in any committee or other body comprising members of the school and wider community, which contribute to the general benefit of all students of the School.
How can you help?
By joining the P&C you add your voice to what is happening in the school. P&C meetings are held once per month on the second Monday, 7pm-8pm in the school staff room. You are involved in discussions on school policy, positive school behaviours, student uniform and dress code, school routines, P&C budget, and the school budget. You may like to be involved in the school P&C run canteen or the P&C school uniform shop. Everybody has a role to play and your ideas will be heard. The more people who are involved the more exciting and successful the P&C will be.
Why join the P&C?
Actions always speak louder than words when it comes to valuing your child's learning. Joining the P&C is one of the best ways to show your children how much you;
- Value their education,
- Are interested in what they do, and
- Are committed to helping students and our school community.
A lot can and has been achieved through the P&C and the school working together towards common goals. To continue the great work, the P&C need people from all walks of life and with a range of talents who are committed to delivering great outcomes for our children and school. Everybody has ideas and viewpoints and yours will certainly be heard.
