The Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) is a group of interested parents and citizens of the Dulwich Hill Public School community who work in close cooperation with the school to ensure the best possible outcomes for our children.

Parent volunteers are elected at the end of each year to act as an executive committee, but the real strength of the P&C comes from the ideas, energy and efforts of all the parents and citizens who make up our community.

The P&C aims to:


•    support the education and wellbeing of our children by fostering close cooperation between parents and the school
•    act as a liaison between parents and the school
•    act as a forum for parents to find out what is happening in, and planned for, the school
•    raise funds to provide services, facilities and equipment for the school
•    represent the views of parents in school decision-making eg. by sitting on school committees and contributing to the development of school policies
•    act on broader community issues that impact on the welfare and safety of students e.g. traffic and pedestrian safety around the school
•    act on broader educational issues, particularly through its membership of the NSW Federation of P&C Associations.

Membership
Membership of the P&C is open to everyone in the Dulwich Hill Public School community – parents, caregivers, grandparents, teachers, and community members. Anyone is welcome to attend a meeting at any time. If you’d like to participate in voting, simply pay a membership fee of 50c (once annually). P&C executive role descriptions

P&C Sub-committees
CLASS (Committee for Learning and Support Strategies)
The Committee for Learning and Support Strategies works closely with school staff to ensure the best possible outcomes for students requiring additional support at school. The committee acts as a source of information and support for parents, and a forum for engagement and consultation between teachers and parents. It also aims to facilitate the flow of information between the school, parents and health professionals.

The committee consists of a convenor, deputy convenor, secretary and treasurer. All roles are elected at the annual general meeting (AGM) held in the middle of each year and involve a variety of tasks. Each role comes with an induction, ongoing support and great rewards.

Music  committee
The music sub- committee supports the Dully music program by facilitating performance opportunities for students via events such as the annual Musical Showcase Evening and Music Mondays, and assists with logistics for the Year 6 musical.  New for 2016 is the formation of a P&C Choir which will perform at the Showcase evening with students. The sub-committee also raises funds at these events via catering & lucky door prizes.  Fundraising in recent years has led to the purchase of timpani drums,  a drum kit and brass instruments, which are offered to school band members on a discounted lease arrangement.
