P&C meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 6pm in HU01 (Humanities Block). The meetings provide a wonderful opportunity for parents to be informed and involved in our school.
Past achievements from the P&C include - contribution to the John Livingston Building, electronic signs, building fund, petition for the new Hall with Aaron Harper MP, Smart Choice's introduction with the tuckshop and introduction of the new uniform.
The P&C has a number of subcommittees, such as the Creative Arts Support Group and the Building Fund Sub-committee. The P&C would also like to establish a Sports Academy Support Group.
Each month we meet to share ideas and provide updates on projects occurring across the school community. Everyone is welcome!
This year we are offering parents another way to be
involved. If you can’t attend meetings but would still like to be
involved, please send our secretary your name and email address and we will add
you to a list to receive minutes of meetings and agenda details. You can
provide feedback via email or if it is an issue of importance you can
attend the meeting. The secretary email address is PandCSecretary@kirwanshs.eq.edu.au
With increased parent attendance, we increase the
knowledge, experience and connections within the association which enables us
to make better decisions. Having a board range of parents across a number
of year levels with children involved in a number of programs such as sport,
arts and academic provides us with a balanced decision making
process. Our goal is to make this the best school possible and we
need your help to make that happen.
We only have approximately 10 meetings a year which go for around 90 minutes, so for a total of 15 hours for the year the benefits are as
- A way to show your children that
you place a high importance on their schooling and are willing to be involved
in their schooling in addition to the support you give them at home.
- A way to meet and develop a
working relationship with the administrative team of the school. Normally
the Principal gives a report at each meeting and is very open to questions from
parents on policy and procedures. This is a great insight into the school
operation as well as a point of contact if you do have any issues.
- It is a way to give time to the
community and also show your children that it is important to be involved in
- It gives you an idea of the
direction that the school is taking – what they are working towards and see as
important which allows you to make an informed decision for your child’s
- It is a place to voice ideas and
concerns directly with the school and gain a better understanding of decisions
- It is an avenue to all work
towards a better school for your child.
- A place to meet other parents and
potentially make some new friends.
- A place to increase your
community contacts which can increase your opportunities into the future or
your son/daughter’s opportunities.
We are lucky to have a very
profitable Tuckshop and so fundraising jobs to date have been non-existent
which is great for all time deprived parents.
