All parents at Rossmoyne Senior High School are encouraged to become involved in the vibrant school community. There are many opportunities to do this, and many of these activities are coordinated through the Parents and Citizens Association Inc. (P&C). Parents unable to commit much time to attend meetings or participate in activities are able to join as an e-member and be informed by email of issues of importance to our children’s education and happenings within the school community. You are also able to electronically contribute ideas and participate in the discussions that enrich the school community. The more opinions we have, the more rounded and helpful our combined suggestions, ideas and visions will be to the school community. Joining the P&C only costs 20 cents.
Responsibilities of the P&C:
- allocating parent donations (determining which programs, buildings or projects within the school receive parent financial support)
- selecting parent representatives on school committees (School Board, Information & Technology, Uniforms, Finance, Health, and Buildings & Grounds Committees).
The P&C has sub-committees which support the Volleyball and Music Specialist Programs in various ways. Parents with children participating in these programs may choose to become involved in these. It is possible to join these groups at any time.
All parents and guardians are invited to attend the meetings which are held in the Function Room at 7.00pm on the 4th and 9th Wednesday night of each term. We also encourage parents to send ideas and comments to our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
To become a member, download and complete the Application Form and hand it with 20 cents to the front office of the school (personally or via your child) or bring it to a meeting. Click here for P&C-Membership-form
