The P&C Association operates a number of sub-committees associated with sporting and cultural extra-curricular activities. They report to the P&C Association and consist of parents and teachers who are involved in the organisation and fundraising for those activities.
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.

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.
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.
A volunteer is an individual who works without payment and acts under the direction and supervision of the school. All volunteers are required to complete an induction the first time they visit any department site and mandatory training annually.
