Dutton Park State School P&C Association

The P&C is all of us – the adults in our school community sharing their time, talents, passions, ideas and resources, for the benefit of all children and families. We welcome your support and involvement.

Love is Contagious Too: a collaborative project by the socially distanced Dutton Park State School community in May 2020.

Many thanks to Diana Schultz for leading this project, creating the video and designing a poster using the hearts contributed by School families. The poster will be displayed at School.

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.

For a P&C to exist we must have an Executive Committee comprised of some of the parents and carers of children at School. For 2020 we have two Presidents (Kat Cutler and Kathryn Steadman), two Secretaries (Shellie Ward and Ralda Rueberry), and a Treasurer (Tilo Happ). We’ll add a photo of us here soon!

We pride ourselves on our enjoyable, friendly and relaxed atmosphere of our P&C meetings – after all, the main reason we get involved is because it is fun. Our monthly meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6.30 – 8.30 pm in the School Library. Members receive the zoom link, minutes and agenda by email prior to each meeting, but any member of the School community is welcome to come along to any meeting – contact us for the zoom link.

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…

Some parents take on positions in the executive committee, 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.

Any time that you can give to support activities is appreciated by everyone – get involved as much or as little as you like.

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.

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.
