P&C Association

​​​​​​​​The Brisbane State High School Parents and Citizens  (P&C) Association encourages closer co-operation between the school, parents and the wider community. P&C Association members work with the Executive Principal and school staff on behalf of the students’ families to foster an interest amongst the parents in educational matters as well as fundraising to provide financial resources for the school.

Core functions of the P&C Association:

  • supporting the various sub-committees; 
  • operating the canteens and Uniform Shop (see next section for payment details); and
  • assist with fundraising.

Sub-committees

All parents are encouraged to attend sub-committee meetings relevant to the activities in which their child participates. Not only do parents get to meet the teachers involved, but they also find out what is happening first-hand.

Student personal insurance cover​

The P&C Association has arranged insurance cover for all students. This cover offers students the protection of personal accident insurance while at school or undertaking school authorised activities, including during sporting activities and school excursions.

Voluntary Contribution Appeal

The P&C Association promotes a Voluntary Contribution Appeal to raise a proportion of the funds we give to the school, which benefits all students. Parents are asked to consider making a contribution each year to this worthwhile appeal.
