About the Parents and Citizens' Association
The Parents and Citizens’ association (P&C) works closely with the school administration to benefit the students at our school.
At Earnshaw, the P&C is involved in:
Consulting with financial planning, budgeting and school policies
Managing the Tuckshop and Bookshop
Assisting with school functions
Planning events and fundraising activities
Applying for grants
Being a member of the P&C is a great way to learn what’s happening at your school. Parents and carers and other family or community members are welcome to take part in the P&C and to volunteer at Earnshaw State College. The tuck shop is always in high need of volunteers throughout each week. Organising events and helping in classrooms, and donating pantry staples are other ways you can contribute. We appreciate all offers of help, your ideas and raising issues you may come across at Earnshaw. We have an inviting and friendly school community here for you to be a part of.
The Parents and Citizens (P&C) Association meet at 6.30 pm on the third Tuesday of each month during school terms. Meetings are held in the McKitrick Centre (entry via senior carpark on cnr Earnshaw and Tufnell Roads). The AGM is always held in March. This meeting is for the election of the P&C executive positions as well as yearly reports/budgets and sub-committee confirmations.
