Parents & Citizens (P&C)

Parents and Citizens Association

P&C stands for Parents and Citizens Association which consists of a body of volunteers from within the school community, usually parents/carers of students. The P&C constitution, set by WACSSO (Western Australian Council of State School Organizations Inc), gives the P&C Executive committee the guidelines to manage this group of volunteers.

At South Thornlie, our Parents and Community are an integral part of our school’s achievements. We feel that it is important that parents/carers that have something valuable to contribute to our school, are encouraged and welcomed with respect, gratitude and appreciation.

The South Thornlie P&C is in constant collaboration with the City of Gosnells to ensure that our school and our students receive the benefits from our Communities resources, facilities and events.

Essentially, we focus on building a strong community within our school, constantly working with and alongside teachers, students and staff members.
Each year the South Thornlie P&C endeavour to raise funds and hold school community events, such as: school disco, sports carnival sausage sizzles, Mother’s Day and Father’s day stalls, Easter and Christmas Raffles, School banking, Eco Bin, busy bees, etc

Funds we raise go to equipment and resources for the students and school and some of our future aims are: new equipment and upgrade of our schools Kindy area including a sensory garden, toys and equipment for Pre-primary, a new play ground for our upper year students, contributions to building improvements and upgrades etc.

Some of our proudest achievements have been the purchase of IPADS for our lower school students raised from a school raffle in 2017, improvements to our pre-primary playground, interactive garden, the introduction of Lego club, chess club, improvements and safety to our bike racks and area, purchases of furniture for our library and interschool sports uniforms for our students, to name a few.

Meetings

We hold two meetings per term in weeks 2 and 6, in our Community Room (within the school), on the Friday of that week at 1pm. We welcome any members from within our school community who wish to help within whichever way they can, with the understanding that a parents/carers time is precious and we are appreciative for any help and contribution.

Membership

Being a member of the South Thornlie P&C is very rewarding as we have an outstanding school community with wonderful students and teachers.
