The college has an active Parents' and Citizens' Association whose main activity has been and remains the provision of equipment and facilities to assist the school and its students, but which also provides an often-needed link between parents and our college.
The meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00pm and usually finish by 8:30pm. They are held alternatively between the Junior Campus (Term 1 and 3) and the Senior Campus (Term 2 and 4). All school parents and interested community members are welcome to attend meetings.
The Annual general meeting is held early in the school year at the February meeting (Junior Campus). Parents will be notified of the actual date by means of a newsletter taken home by the students and an advertisement in the North West Star. The school budget is normally presented and approved at the March monthly meeting.
An important activity of the P&C is the running of tuckshops on both the junior and senior campus. The tuckshops operate every school day from 8:00am to 1:00pm, offering a wide range of food and drinks at reasonable prices. As of July 2006, the tuckshops have followed 'Smart Choices - Healthy Food and Drink Supply Strategy for Queensland Schools'. The tuckshops also sell our school jumper, hats, polo shirt and shorts.
We have very dedicated staff at both the Senior and Junior Campus tuckshops, who all put in many hours above what they are paid for. Even so, they can always do with extra help. If you have a few hours to spare one morning during your week, the tuckshop ladies would really appreciate your assistance. Even one morning a month would be a great help. This would be a good way to meet new people, learn new skills and, in turn, help to support our school community.
If you would like to enquire about helping out, please see the ladies at tuckshop.
