Parents and Citizens' (P&C) Associations are not-for-profit organisations that work in productive partnership with their school and the community to enhance the outcomes of students. A P&C Association is a group of volunteers, governed by an elected Executive Committee that may also employ staff to provide and operate various services. P&C Associations use any profits from these services, along with fundraising efforts, to support and enhance programs and projects within their school.
Kawana Waters State College's P&C Association follows these principles and exists to engage parents and citizens in ways that build and sustain purposeful relationships with the school, to foster improvements in education and developmental outcomes of students.
Our P&C Association supports the State High community through:
- close cooperation and collaboration between parents, community, staff and students
- feedback on school policies and activities by hosting regular meetings attended by the school's Executive Principal and members of staff
- fundraising to provide resources to enhance student learning and improve the school environment
- opportunities for parents and guardians to be involved in their child's education and the broader school community
- supporting parent-run P&C Association sub-committees for sporting and cultural extra-curricular activities.
One of the greatest assets of an education at Kawana Waters State College is the wonderful diversity of nationalities and cultures that make up the school's student cohort. For many families, this could be your first encounter with a P&C Association. We warmly welcome all families to join and get involved in our P&C, whether it is your first experience with a P&C or you are a P&C veteran!
