Promoting your P&C

Encourage parents to get involved and attract new volunteers using these resources.

  • Brochure about your P&C (to include in the school's enrolment pack, or hand out on the 'First Day' for example). It is designed to be printed double sided and then tri-folded. Download word file (to amenda for your P&C) or PDF (to show formating). Contact us for other formats.
  • Sample form for school enrolment packs to collect parent emails for the P&C (approved by the Directorate).
