WHO ARE WE?
We’re a friendly, dedicated group of volunteers committed to work together to support Everton Park State School’s community. Led by a volunteer executive team, our strength comes from our members: we rely on their ideas, effort, skills and energy to enable us to function as a successful P&C! Membership is open to everyone – parents, caregivers, grandparents, teachers, and the general community. We meet the third Monday each month at 7pm in the school library. Meetings are friendly and informal.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
The P&C values the rich diversity of skills and experiences each family brings to the school. We know time is precious, and we appreciate any help families can offer!
There are plenty of ways to volunteer. Every year, the P&C runs a variety of fundraising events, and we’re always looking for help. We also need weekly volunteers for our tuckshop and uniform shop.
WHAT IS IN IT FOR YOU?
Kids love their parents/carers being involved at school, whether it’s volunteering in the classroom or at events! Volunteering is a great way to find out what’s going on around school. Plus you’ll get to connect with other members of the community and show your kids the amazing outcomes possible when people work towards a common goal.
