Parents and Citizens P&C

Our school has an active Parents & Citizens group incorporated with NSW P&C Federation. Any parent or community member is welcome to attend. Meetings are held on the last Tuesday of the month (except school holidays), in the Library Meeting Room, which is directly behind the bus-bay, opposite the intersection with Coolabah Place.

P&C Meetings for 2021 will be held on:

  • 23 February
  • 30 March 
  • 27th April – AGM + Ordinary meeting
  • 25th May
  • 27th July
  • 24 August
  • 26 October
  • 23 November

The meetings may be held online via Zoom depending on the Dept of Education directive regarding COVID-19.

Please be aware that only financial members of the CHS P&C can vote on matters at a meeting or stand for an Office Bearer position. However, any community member are welcome to attend by RSVP to the Secretary at CHSPandC@yahoo.com by the Friday before the meeting to receive updates regarding the meeting. To become a Financial Member, you can pay your annual membership fee at the first meeting of the year (23 February). Otherwise, you can take a gold coin ($1 or $2) in an envelope clearly marked with your name, email address, identified for P&C membership,  to the school’s Front Office. We will accept payment and add you to the membership register up until 2pm of the Friday before the next meeting. At each meeting the school Principal briefs parents on the latest events and policy decisions which impact on our children.

These meetings are a great forum to learn of initiatives, events and achievements which are important to your child's learning and well-being at school. This is also an opportunity to meet other parents and staff members who regularly address the meetings.

The usual meeting format is as follows:

  • 7.30pm Welcome & Apologies
