Parents & Citizens Association
The Ainslie School Parents & Citizen's Association (P&C committee) is a group of parents, carers and friends of the school which coordinates and manages a range of activities to support the school and its students. The P&C Association is also a link between the School Board, parents, carers and the school.
The P&C Association offers a great opportunity for all parents and carers to be involved in the school. Our P&C Association raises a significant amount of funds to support learning at the school and the school's facilities. Funds raised by the P&C committee have contributed to a range of projects including the school's music program, sports programs, canteen, playgrounds, end of year speech day, year 6 graduation and the vegetable gardens.
The P&C Association holds a general meeting once a term in the staff room at Ainslie School. These meetings are a great opportunity to find out what is happening in the school. It is also a way to bring any issues or ideas forward. Please come along and join in the discussions – we provide tea, coffee and delicious treats, and we promise you won't be "volunteered" for something (unless you want to!)
The office bearers for the P&C are as follows. Please feel free to contact any of them if you have a question about the P&C - if they can't answer it, then they will know who can!
