Concord High School P&C and its volunteers work to bring the school community together such that parents, carers, staff and community members can help meet the needs of the school community and contribute to decisions about the school.  The P&C offers a means of staying connected with your child, their school and your local community.

Regular P&C Meetings

The P&C meets twice a term on Tuesday evenings in the Library from 6.00 pm, generally concluding the meeting by 8.00 pm.

Meeting dates for 2020 are:

  • 17 March
  • 12 May
  • 16 June
  • 28 July
  • 8 September (AGM)
  • 20 October
  • 24 November

Our meetings are fun, collegiate and informative gathering of parent, carer, staff and community members.  We have our Grants and Social & Fund Raising Committees report back to us as well as Treasurer and President reports.  We raise and discuss issues concerning our children's education, hear about developments at school through the Principal's report and, importantly, we have had over the years a number of guest speakers attend both from the school staff and externally. Past topics have included settling your child into High School and what to expect, NAPLAN tests, cyber-safety, faculty updates, high potential and gifted education, anti-bullying policies and the new Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) school program.

All members and non members are welcome.  However, an annual membership fee of $1 payable at any meeting entitles you to vote on P&C matters from the meeting following payment.  In addition, only members can be Office Holders. All memberships must be renewed at the General Meeting following the Annual General Meeting. Minutes for the meetings from 2016 to current can be found in Agendas and Meeting Minutes.

Grants

The P&C Grants programme is run by our Grants Manager, Donna Hogan, who works in partnership with CHS staff and the P&C in identifying, applying for and raising much needed funds to finance school projects through P&C led grant applications.

Do you work for large a organisation that provide grants to their employees?  You might not know it but a simple search or query of your company might unearth a grant just waiting for your application on behalf of CHS P&C.  What a great and simple way to contribute towards financing many of CHS’ projects to benefit the students and CHS community.

Please contact Donna via email if you become aware of any company led or general grants that you think could be relevant to the school or if you wish to help out in this area.

Requests for funding

The school community can submit requests for funding.  The application process is detailed in the documents below.

P&C Representative on Staff Merit Selection Panels

Another important way of being involved is to sit as a P&C representative on a Merit Selection Panel for new staff.  Please email if you would be interested in receiving more information and/or if you are currently trained and/or have sat on Panels before.  Training will be provided.
