P&C - What's involved?
P&C – what's involved?
Parents understandably have questions about how much time being part of the P&C committee can consume.
For most, it's a simple commitment of 1.5 hours a month to attend the meetings. At these meetings, you have the opportunity to hear about what is happening at the school, be involved in school policy formation, participate in decision making about fundraising, and have your say on how this money is spent.
There are some positions on the committee that require a greater time commitment however these are voluntary positions such as President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer. If your schedule does not allow it, you don't have to opt for one of these positions.
Apart from the monthly meetings (which occur only during school terms) committee members may also become involved in the organisation of fundraising events. This time commitment is minimal and again, you can choose to participate only as much as your schedule allows.
Our P&C meetings are held on the third Monday of each month, at 7pm in the library. If you have any questions about the P&C committee or the meetings, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you at a meeting soon!
