In 2021 I joined the Woree State High School P&C to become more involved as a parent, rather than teacher, in my son's high school career. I am a mum of 4 beautiful children and with 4 members of my family at Woree High, my family is heavily invested in helping Woree High be the best school it can be.
The P&C plays an important role within our school community as it oversees the distribution of funds raised to assist us make improvements throughout the school. The P&C is responsible for the operation of the school tuckshop and the uniform shop. The Administration Team at WSHS works closely with members of the P&C, to determine where funds will best be spent each year. If you would like to have a say on these sorts of things, share some great ideas or need some information, the P&C is a great part of your school community to be involved in.
We keep in touch with our school leaders, student council and staff, through the admin team, to ensure that we all work together to improve situations and opportunities for our students. We have students come to the P&C with presentations and requests, and we provide yearly support through attendance rewards, prizes for the Yearbook Cover competition and sponsorship of uniforms for our scholarship programs. This is on top of specific projects that are funded by the P&C upon determination of their suitability, at any given time throughout the year.
I urge all of you to stay connected with our school community in any way that you can, to ensure that the best possible outcomes are achieved for all of our students. If you have any questions in relation to the P&C please contact our Operations Manager, Karen Chaloner, on the address below, or call the school to leave a message. Karen will get back to you as soon as possible.
