Parents, carers and the community

As a parent or carer, you are an important part of our school community. We offer a range of services to support you and your family.

Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C)

Our Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C) is made up of parents and carers, teachers and community members. The P&C meets regularly to contribute to decision-making, developing policies and management plans as well as fundraising.

The Parent and Citizens Association (P&C) of Crestwood Public School meet at 7:30pm in the school library on the second Tuesday of the month during school terms only.

The role of our P&C is to work together, as a team, to enhance the school for the benefit of our children. The meetings provide a forum for parents to come together to find out what is happening in the school. At our monthly meetings we make decisions or how we allocate funds raised through the voluntary contribution levy, as well as any funds contributed from our sub committees. We also have the opportunity to listen to reports from our Principal and our various sub committees.

The P&C works with the school by providing parental support on committees as well as coordinating any fund raising activities for important school projects. It really is a team effort.

The P&C has a formal structure with a constitution and a President, 2 Vice President's, Secretary and Treasurer. These office bearers are elected at the Annual General Meeting which is held at the first P&C meeting in June.

The current P&C Committee members are:

President - Erin Rainsford

Vice Presidents - Katie Donnelly and Julian Doyle

Treasurer - Kylie Swinnerton

Secretary - Jade Perrau

Preloved Uniforms - Yasmin Duckworth

Events - Katie Donnelly

Canteen Convenor - Dannii Kelly
