About MVPS Parents & Citizens' Association (P&C)
Our Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C) is an important part of the Manly Vale community. It encourages the participation of all parents in the general life of the school as well as the education of their children. It is also the body that brings together various elements of the school community – parents, teachers and ‘friends’ (grandparents, special friends, the local community, etc.) to work as a coordinated group and contribute to the school through fundraising activities, social events and much more. The P&C has an input into the decision making process around school directions, and provides financial support and volunteers to assist in achieving these directions. It runs many of the school services including the uniform shop, canteen and school banking.
Why do we fundraise?
The P&C assists our children by fundraising for vital resources outside the school budget, such as additional education programs, classroom Smartboards, playground upgrades and sporting equipment. We hold fundraising events to create and evolve a positive caring and sharing school community.
2023 Fundraising goals
Our overarching goal is always to place community first, funds second. The P&C will work with our Principal Mrs Lee and the school executive to decide on where the P&C fundraising can assist the most. All parents are encouraged to join and participate in this collaborative process which is updated at each monthly P&C meeting.
Our next P&C Meeting & the AGM is on....
Date: Tuesday, 7th March
Venue: MVPS Staff Room
Open Invitation: Any parent, carer or member of our school community are most welcome to attend our monthly P&C meetings.
