P&C

Parents and Citizens (P&C) association 

 

We are fortunate to have a very active P&C association in the school. The P&C help us reach our goals by participating in decision making that relates to parents, teachers and school organisation. The P&C provides a variety of services to our school community including:  tuckshop, uniform shop, fundraising and community events.

The P&C meets on alternate Tuesday and Thursdays of each month unless otherwise advised. The P&C advertises the dates for their meetings in the school newsletter and on the school website. Meetings are held at Gumdale State School at 7.00 pm. You are encouraged and most welcome to attend.

Even if you are not able to attend P&C meetings, we encourage you to become a P&C member so you are informed by email of meeting minutes, learn what is happening in the school and have your say. Your membership with the P&C needs to be renewed yearly by completing a membership application form (PDF, 87 KB) and submitting it each year prior to the Annual General Meeting. It is also possible to join later in the year; contact the P&C for details of how to do this.

Research shows that children whose parents are actively engaged with their education, do better and are happier at school. Being involved with P&C shows your child that you value their education. It also gives you the opportunity to network with the principal, teachers and other parents so you can discuss issues and share your ideas and experiences. 

Volunteers

We are always in need of volunteers to help with a variety of community events and fundraising held at the school also with our busy tuckshop and uniform shop. If you would like to volunteer within our school community, please complete the Gumdale State School volunteer form and return it to the P&C or to our office. 

Uniform Shop

The P&C operates a not-for-profit uniform shop located underneath B block at the front of the school.  

The current opening hours are Mondays from 2pm – 5pm and Fridays from 8am – 11am.  The Uniform Shop policy can be found here.  

Tuckshop

The P&C operates a tuckshop which is located underneath B block at the front of the school. It is open from 8:30am to 2pm each school day.

The Tuckshop operates a roster of volunteers. We are always looking for people to help. It is an enjoyable day’s work where you get to meet some of the other parents as well as the children. Please leave your name and phone number at the Tuckshop if you are interested in finding out more about this, or call the Tuckshop Convenor on 3890 5555.  The current Tuckshop policy can be found here.  

Fundraising

The P&C currently has an outstanding P&C fundraising committee whose members contribute generously of their time and skills to raise substantial funds to improve the resources and opportunities for our students. You are invited to assist by offering help when requested, and by participating in the events they organise.  The Fundraising Calendar can be found here.
