Welcome to the Mount Lawley Primary School Parents & Citizens' Association (P&C).
The purpose of the P&C is to promote the interests of the school through:
- cooperation between parents, teachers, students and members of the general community;
- assisting in the provision of resources, facilities and amenities that benefit the whole school; and
- the fostering of community interest in educational matters.
We encourage all members of the school community to participate in P&C meetings, activities and events.
Notice of P&C Meeting
The P&C will hold the next meeting on Thursday 13 August from 7.30pm in the Staffroom. Anyone interested in the P&C is invited to attend. Please do come along and see what the P&C is all about. The meeting Agenda is emailed to existing P&C members in advance of the meeting (usually a week beforehand). If you are not yet an official member of the P&C and would like to receive the Agenda, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Membership of the P&C is open to parents and carers of children attending the school and to citizens being over the age of eighteen years who support the objects or purposes of the Association. To become an official member of the P&C please refer to the Membership Form.
Exciting news - the P&C recently approved a proposal to establish a canteen service at the school. Having our own on-site canteen has been a long-time request of so many parents. the canteen - called Bells will be run by the P&C, for the benefit of the school community. It will operate from the existing kitchen in the Covered Assembly Area, run by a paid Canteen Manager, with the help of volunteers. The detailed proposal and the accompanying Questions & Answers are available below. We have not yet set a formal launch date, as we need to align with the various rules regarding COVID-19. Our hope is to launch sometime in Term 3...stay tuned for more details.
The P&C is governed by its Constitution and Rules. The current Constitution was adopted in November 2019, replacing the prior version dated 2001.The P&C has established sub-committees and working groups in support of approved P&C activities. Each sub-committee/group abides by a Terms of Reference (TOR) that has been approved by the full P&C.
P&C General Meetings
We welcome everyone to P&C General Meetings, held twice each term. We meet on the Thursday of Weeks 4 and 8 of each school term, in the school staff room, starting at 7:30pm. The meetings are a great way to understand and contribute to the activities of the P&C. The Principal attends each P&C meeting, which provides a great way for everyone to stay connected on key topics relevant to the school.
P&C Facebook group
We recommend all members of the school community join the P&C's dedicated Facebook group. We use the P&C Facebook page to advertise our wide range of P&C events. If you do not have Facebook, then look out for P&C notices in the school's newsletter (published online every fortnight).
