Information sheets to step you through recruiting support
Resources to help
- 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).
- This Infographic celebrates the ways P&Cs contribute to public schools and can help inspire parents to be involved.

Thanking your volunteers will also help you retain and recruit helpers.
The Fundraising Directory also has great advice and ideas for recruiting volunteers (filter the articles by 'volunteers'), filling fete-day rosters, making the most of open days and the 'First Day' and engaging new-comers.
