Why be involved
What is the number 1 reason to become an active participant with the Goulburn South P&C?
They love to see their parents/carers at school, assisting in the canteen or helping out at special events – make the most of it as it doesn’t last forever!
You will have the opportunity to become involved with your child’s school community and meet other parents. By becoming a Financial Member for the sum of only 50 cents you will have the added advantage of being able to contribute and have a say in decisions relating to the operation of the school canteen, fundraising ideas and activities and how funds raised by the P&C are spent.
Even if you prefer not to become a Financial Member of the P&C, by attending our meetings on a regular basis you will also have the benefit of hearing ‘first hand’ what is happening around our school.
If you have any questions relating to P&C activities, would like to volunteer and contribute in some capacity or require any further information please do not hesitate to contact the Goulburn South P&C via email: firstname.lastname@example.org alternatively call into the schools front office and leave a message.
