Panania North Public School

Honesty in all things

Telephone02 9773 8394

Our Parents and citizens association (P&C) is a group of interested parents and community members that work to support the students, teachers and school. The real strength of the P&C comes from the ideas, dedication and energy put in by all the parents who make up the membership.

The Panania north Public School P&C meet on the first Monday of every month at 7:00pm. Check the school newsletter or P&C Facebook page for meeting dates.

The P&C's objectives are to:

  • Promote the interest of the school by bringing parents, citizens, students and teaching staff into close co-operation
  • Assist in providing facilities and equipment for the school and promoting the recreation and welfare of the students at the school
  • Encourage parent and community participation in curriculum and other education issues in schools
  • Report, when requested by the Minister, on the material requirements of the school and advise about maintenance of the school, alterations and additions to school facilities and the selection of new sites
  • Assist and co-operate with teaching staff at public functions associated with the school
  • Be responsible for the election of parent representatives to any school council constituted at the school in consultation with the principal of the school.

Various fundraising events and activities are co-ordinated by the P&C and run by volunteers to help achieve these objectives.


The P&C is always keen to welcome new members! Membership of the P&C is open to everyone – parents, caregivers, grandparents, teachers, and the community generally. To join, simply attend a P&C meeting and pay a membership fee ($1). This entitles you to vote on motions and decisions about spending P&C funds.
