Coorparoo State School has an active and engaged Parents and Citizens (P&C) Association who work to unite the school community and to support the needs and aims of the school.
P&C membership is open to all parents, guardians, carers and friends who want to positively input into the life of the school. Volunteers meet regularly, and share their time, energy and skills in different ways. It's a great way to meet other parents, to take an active part in your child's education and to have fun!
Broadly, the P&C aims to:
· Build cooperation and communication between parents, teachers and students and to promote positive experiences for the wider school community
· Fundraise to improve facilities and resources and to meet the needs and aims of the school
Notice of P&C Annual General Meeting (AGM)
The AGM of the Coorparoo State School Parents and Citizens Association will be held on Tuesday 9th March in the school library, starting at 7.00 pm. This will be followed by a General Meeting at 7.30pm.
Please refer to the 2021 Agenda - 2021 Agenda - AGM
The AGM is held so the P&C can elect its executive members, appoint officers, confirm sub-committees, report on activities of the previous year, and present audited financial statements.
All current office bearers are required to step down from their roles at the AGM. The Principal will call for nominations for all executive positions. New members are encouraged to nominate, current office bearers can also renominate.
Become a P&C Member
Every member of our school community is encouraged to become a member of the P&C. There is no cost to become a member. You must be a P&C member to be eligible to stand for election.
Even if you are currently not a P&C member you can stand for a position at the AGM because the call for membership takes place before the election process. Also, if you submit a P&C membership application to the AGM you can become a P&C member without attending the meeting itself. The AGM is the only meeting of the year where these rules apply.
Please complete the 2021 Membership Application and return to the School Office or hand to the P&C Secretary at the AGM on 9 March 2021.
