P&C

The Belgian Gardens State School parents and citizens association (the P&C) is a voluntary, inclusive, not-for-profit organization affiliated directly with the school. Operating under its constitution the P&C represents adults from the community, particularly parents and caregivers of students at the school, to promote the interests and facilitate the development and further improvement of Belgian Gardens State School. The P&C is also the employer of the tuckshop convenor.

The P&C works closely and cooperatively with the principal, and contributes valuable fundraising to the school through business initiatives and fundraising activities held throughout each year, assisting the school with numerous projects.

Structure

The Belgian Gardens State School P&C executive consists of a president, 2 vice presidents, secretary, treasurer and assistant treasurer, together with chair persons for each of subcommittee, P&C Queensland representative, volunteer coordinator and the principal who is an honorary member of the P&C. The subcommittees have been formed to support the main focus areas of the P&C, such as fundraising, grants and tuckshop. Together they ensure that the commitments to the school and their legal responsibilities are met.

The P&C meets the fourth Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm in the school staffroom, except when it falls in the holidays. At the general meetings, the financial position of the P&C is reported on, the subcommittees present their reports and important issues are put forward for discussion and voted on if necessary.

All parents are welcome to attend the P&C meetings. You can become a member by downloading the P&C membership form.

P&C executive

The annual general meeting is held in late February early march where elections are held for the executive positions for that year.
