Parents and citizens association (P&C)

Our Parents & Citizens Association (P&C) is a vital part of Cambridge Gardens Public School.

It exists to support our school to enable our students to reach their full potential. This is done by:

  • Fundraising and allocating funds raised
  • Organising activities and events to promote a sense of school community
  • Providing input from a parents' perspective on school policies and other issues that arise.

The P&C is a separate body to the school and is governed by a constitution.

Anyone can join the P&C and any level of involvement is welcome. Your involvement can range from being an Executive Member, taking an active role in our fundraising events or even just attending the P&C meetings to see what goes on.

At the start of each year, our principal and the P&C discuss the school's funding requests and considers suggestions from P&C members and the wider parent community. Projects and activities are prioritised and funds allocated.

In recent years funds were allocated to a wide range of items including:

  • Ipads
  • Playground markings
  • Shade shelters
  • Reading Eggs learning program
  • Jerseys
  • Electronic School sign
  • Outdoor Seating
  • Home readers

In an era of tight government education budgets, the P&C's financial support for the school is more important than ever.


While fundraising is not the main objective of a P&C Association it continues to be an important part of our activities. Cambridge Gardens P&C has a fantastic group of parents dedicated to dreaming up and organising new and exciting fundraising opportunities. All money raised is used to support and assist funding the needs and wants of our school, in its efforts to provide a dynamic and innovative environment. Funds are often raised through activities such as BBQ's , Disco's and other social events throughout the year and these events are greatly enjoyed by both the students and parent volunteers.
