About the P&C
What is the P&C?
Mareeba State Primary School's Parent and Citizens Association (P&C) is an important part of the school that provides the necessary link between the school and parents, carers and the community. The P&C conducts fundraising activities throughout the year, with funds raised going to support the school.
Why join the P&C?
By joining the P&C, you are showing your children how committed you are to helping students and your school community. Participating in P&C activities can also help you to form friendships with other parents/carers and feel a part of your school community. Only registered members have the right to vote on issues raised at meetings.
What is required of members?
For those who think "I don't have time"...
Members of the P&C can be as involved as they like! Meetings are held once a month for around an hour and are not mandatory to attend. Having a large number of members increases opportunities when applying for grants to supply much needed school improvements.
What has the P&C done for the school in the last few years?
- Supply and replace fridges to all classrooms for student lunches
- Cover bus fares for school excursions to reduce the overall cost for families
- Replace Soundfield systems for three classrooms
- Funded wireless internet throughout the school
- Supplied representative sports uniforms
- Funded students to attend extracurricular activities including CGEN and sporting activities

From the P&C President...
I work together with a wonderful group of parents, who have volunteered to be part of the Mareeba State School's P&C Committee. We work in a productive partnership with Mrs Simpson and the community to promote the interests of the school and facilitate its development and future improvement, to achieve the best outcomes for students. We are involved in a variety of school activities from policy to financial planning, Tuckshop, Uniform Shop, fundraising and school functions.
We would love to see some new faces at our meetings held on the third Tuesday of every month (this may be subject to change). Come along if you can... we promise we won't bite! We are just a bunch of parents who want to see our children's school move forward in a positive way.
