Parents & Citizens Association

Parents & Citizens Association

 The Parents & Citizens Association (P&C) is an organisation of the school community open to parents/caregivers, staff and interested members of the community. For up-to-date information on P&C news and events, you can access the P&C Facebook page by the following address:  https://www.facebook.com/BurrendahPandC/

Burrendah’s P&C encourages community and parental involvement in a variety of aspects of the school, including assisting reading in class; volunteering in the canteen; helping out on sports days and carnivals; being a part of the music support subcommittee; attending assemblies; fundraising; attending P&C meetings and nominating parents to work on the school board. We ask parents to make a voluntary contribution per child to enable us to carry out our activities.

The P&C has provided substantial funding over the years, regularly supporting the gold card book vouchers, school honour board and improving resources for our school. This is only possible with the active participation of the parent body of the school.

The P&C also runs the canteen on Mondays which is very popular with the children.  Orders can be placed in person, at the canteen, or online at Quick Cliq - BEFORE 9:00 am. https://www.quickcliq.com.au

 We have adopted a healthy eating policy, following the guidelines set out by the Government and WACSSO (Western Australian Council of State School Organisations Inc.).  The school has a Crunch and Sip program that means we encourage healthy snacking and water consumption whilst learning.

Burrendah Primary School P & C is a member of WACSSO. See more information about WACSSO at https://www.wacsso.wa.edu.au/

We are confident that your children will have a fantastic time at Burrendah and hope you can get involved with us to enhance their school experience. We extend a warm welcome to you and invite you to get involved in the Parent and Citizens community for our school.

 

Thank you to the Community News photographer, David Baylis, for allowing us to use his photograph of school Board and P&C representatives promoting the development of our future senior playground.
