Dutton Park State School P&C Association
Welcome to the Dutton Park State School P&C association website. Learn about why we have a P&C association, what we do, how to get involved and sign up to be a member. We also have the latest information on activities the P&C are supporting, list of upcoming P&C meetings, and our online store will be updated with products and tickets for certain events throughout the year.
The P&C association provides an official structure that allows parents to raise funds to support our school. Our P&C doesn’t have any employees, we are a volunteer association.
Some parents take on positions in the executive committee (we like to have two of each – Presidents, Vice-Presidents, Secretaries, and Treasurers) but lots of parents contribute in other ways, from organising a disco or special food day, to serving coffee at Parent Hub or sorting through lost property.
P&C maintains two mailing lists – members and non-members. Both mailing lists receive emails about activities and events. Members additionally receive agendas and minutes for P&C meetings. P&C membership does not bring with it any obligation to attend meetings or participate in activities but is essential if you want to be involved in deciding how the money that we raise is spent.
Available regularly at the same time each week?
Consider helping with the uniform shop, tuckshop, school banking, lost property, or in your child’s classroom. And come along to Parent Hub for a cuppa and a chat.
Can’t commit to a regular weekly activity?
Look out for requests for help with school and P&C events such as Sports Days, Under 8’s Day, Mother’s Day stall, Ride to School day, End of Year Disco… and many more. These events can’t happen without volunteers.
Keen to connect but feeling nervous?
Many parents wish they could make friends as easily as their kids do! Here are some suggestions… hang out at Parent Hub (we love to talk)… strike up conversation with other parents or your class parent representative… attend a playdate after School… help organise an event…
Any time that you can give to support activities is appreciated by everyone – get involved as much or as little as you like.
There is no obligation for P&C members to attend meetings, volunteer time or participate in activities, but membership is essential if you want to be involved in voting on any P&C decision during the year, including how the money that we raise is spent.
Due to rules outside our control, you will have to complete a new membership form every year – make sure you fill it in and return it to be sure we have your current contact details.
