P&C Role

The Maribyrnong Primary P&C promotes community participation in the activities of the school. All parents and carers of students at the school are members of the P&C, and other interested individuals may become members. The P&C has a number of objectives including:

  • promotion of the interests of the school
  • fostering collaboration between staff, parents and other citizens
  • provision of a forum where members can contribute to the development of the goals and policies of the school.

P&C activities include:

  • managing and staffing the canteen
  • managing the After School Music Scheme Program
  • assisting with school functions
  • conducting social functions and fundraising activities, such as the annual Twilight Fair.
