There are a number of volunteer roles in the P&C that are vital to the functioning of the P&C, ad we are really on the lookout for a new Treasurer as our current Treasurer is resigning.
The Executive Committee positions are the following:

- Treasurer – Has the overall responsibility for the financial management of the P&C. A budget at the beginning of the year is required, as well as monthly reports to the P&C of the financial status. Commitment is approximately 20 hours per month (may be more during peak times).
- Secretary – Assists in maintaining attendance records and registers of members, as well as maintaining meeting records and preparing agendas, maintaining P&C records and correspondence. Commitment is approximately 10 hours per month.
There are also some other great volunteer roles that support the function of the P&C, and these can be filled by more than one person. These roles can take as little as one hour per month to 20 or more hours per month. All school parents and carers are encouraged to help out where they can, and become involved in the P&C.
