About Us

TERREY HILLS PUBLIC SCHOOL PARENTS & CITIZENS ASSOCIATION

It is of great benefit for each government school to have a P&C Association. The aim is to provide a forum in which parents can develop their partnership with the school and articulate their aspirations for their children's education.

What is a P&C Association?

Terrey Hills Public School P&C Association was incorporated on 24 April 1998 and is a member of the P&C Federation. This means we have a constitution, by laws and agreed resolutions by which we operate.

P&C Federation Services

Terrey Hills Public School P&C meet on the second Tuesday of the month during school terms at 7.30pm in the staff lunch room located in the administration building.

 

Structure of P&C Meetings

Welcome

• Read and confirm minutes of previous meeting and discuss any matters arising from those minutes

• Correspondence In and Out

• Reports (Treasurer, Canteen, Kids Club, Events, Uniform Shop, School Council, Principal)

• Agenda Items on notice

• Other General Business

• Closing, confirm date of next meeting

Association Funds

Money raised by the P&C must be used for the benefit of the school. At the start of each year members will decide at a general meeting how funds will be disbursed. All funds of the P&C and sub committees are managed by the Treasurer and financial statements presented at each general meeting. At the conclusion of each calendar year the accounts are audited and consolidated financial statements are presented at the Annual General Meeting in March.

At times a majority of members may feel it appropriate to expend a limited amount of funds or occasional activities for certain individuals, as an expression of the association's esteem, recognition or condolences.
