Sharing Expertise

Through Council, P&Cs can share expertise, learn from others and network.

Working groups

Several internal Council Working Groups focus on making improvements and sharing expertise on specific topics, including canteens, uniform shops, and before and after school care. Anyone is free to join.

Council meetings

Meet other P&C members at our regular meetings and hear how they approach their roles.

Social media

Join us on Facebook - we often share posts from other P&Cs so you can see what they are up to!


A regular section in ParentACTion magazine shares great things happening at our P&Cs to inspire others:
