P&C

Parents & Citizens Association

The Parents and Citizens Association consists of parents, staff and community members and is vital to the healthy functioning of our School. The role of the P&C Association is changing with more and more collaborative decision making taking place. The P&C encourages a good cross-section of our parent body, school staff and local community to become active members.

There is a growing trend towards greater participation by family and community members in all sectors of school life.  The P&C is another area where grandparents and retired community members are most welcome to become involved. In many family situations today, both parents work and have little time to attend meetings and to be classroom helpers. Grandparents could become your family representative for these activities.
The major event organised by the P&C is the Annual Country Fair.  In 2016 this traditional school fete has grown into a major community event, attracting hundreds of people to the township of Palmwoods. On Saturday 21st May from 1.00pm to 6.00pm, visitors were able to experience rides, hot food including curries, a coffee shop with homemade cakes and confectionery, arts and crafts, live music, face painting, show bags, herbs and plants, fresh produce stall, a trash and treasure stall and the monster auction. The day finished with a laser light show.  The success of the fair is enhanced by the numerous contributions by local businesses and community members via sponsorship and donations. 
Special mention must be made of the Heritage Bank Palmwoods Community Branch which has provided huge financial support for Palmwoods State School over the past six years with donations totalling in excess of $157,000.  These funds have contributed significantly towards our new tuckshop, playground resurfacing and the costuming and staging of our highly successful school musicals.  A big thank you to Branch Manager, Sophia Di Ferdinando, the Board of Directors and Staff at the Palmwoods Community Branch.  The school also benefits from Heritage referrals.   View the Heritage Referrals Brochure here to see how you can benefit too.
Community members are invited to join us at one of our regular P&C Trivia nights held in the school hall.  These have become relaxing nights out for many who enjoy the delicious food, drinks and interesting brain teasers while socialising with friends, or meeting new friends. 

We encourage all community members to be active participants in our school and look

 forward to you joining us at our meetings held in the staffroom on the 3rd Tuesday of

 the month from 7.00pm to 9.00pm.

Our P&C Association also now has its own dedicated Facebook page that keeps our

families and community up to date with all the events and activities happening.  Check
