Parent and Citizen's Association

The Avalon Public School Parent and Citizen's Association is an integral part of a dynamic school community that is committed to quality education for all our students.

Our purpose is to assist the school in providing the best education possible for our children and to act as a liaison between parents and school on a variety of issues. The Association consists of an executive board that is elected by the parent body at the Annual General Meeting during Term 4. All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend P&C meetings, which are held in the fourth week of  Terms 1, 2& 3.

The P&C supports the school in a variety of ways:

  • Through fundraising activities to support educational programs within our school. By providing resources such as classroom reading materials and modern technological equipment.

  • By seeking out other sources of funding, such as government grants, to improve the physical conditions, grounds, or supply of equipment or materials, such as lighting in the hall, playground equipment or library improvements.
  • By providing a voice for parents in the wider education community involving the Federation of P&C Associations and the Department of Education, Science and Training.

Under the umbrella of the P&C are a variety of sub- committees that support the school in extracurricular activities and services. They are:

  • Band Committee
  • Dance Committee
  • OOSH Committee (Out of School Hours care facility)
  • Canteen/Uniform Committee
  • Gardening Club

By being an active volunteer in the workings of the school, not only will you meet wonderful parents, students and teachers, you will be part of a fruitful and rewarding partnership in the education of your child.
