What is the P&C?
At Manly Village Public School we have a wonderfully dynamic Parents and Citizens Association (P&C). The P&C has its own website with information regarding fundraising and volunteering and updates on projects funded by the P&C.
One of the main aims of the parents of the P&C is to improve the school experience for every child (beyond that which the Department of Education provides) in a non-political, non-discriminatory manner.
What can I expect at a meeting?
The P&C meets on the second Monday of the month in the school library. Meetings begin at 7pm sharp and finish by 9pm. One of the main roles of the P&C is to raise funds for important resources in addition to those funded by the Department of Education. In recent years funding has been allocated mainly to smartboards. Through attending P&C meetings parents and community members have the opportunity to discuss many aspects of the school and vote on how P&C funds are spent to support the students at Manly Village Public School.
What activities are the parents of the P&C involved in?
This school has a great tradition of parental involvement. The parents of the P&C are involved with a huge array of projects throughout the school, capturing a broad range of interests and talents. These projects include grounds, canteen, uniform, band, fundraising, school magazine and the Manly Market.
Each year an Annual General Meeting is held at which the Executive members are voted in. This is advertised in the school newsletter known as 'The Seasider'. The MVPS P&C Executive comprises the President, two Vice Presidents, Secretary and Treasurer.
The parents of the P&C at Manly Village Public School are about 'Parents contributing for our children'.
