Where would they be? Our schools that is, without the hard work of local P&C’s.
P&C Day and the P&C of the Year Awards are held every year and now is the time to start thinking about nominating with nominations open from P&C Day this year.
And we need also to remember P&C Day on 25 May, as the time to publicly thank hardworking P&C members for the tireless work they do each year to improve our educational facilities, resources and student outcomes in schools.
P&Cs Qld CEO Kevan Goodworth says P&C’s are the backbone of each school community no matter how big or small.
“In our 2017 member survey, results indicated that P&Cs have approximately 30,000 volunteers working in state schools across Queensland, with executive committees who spend more than 10 hours every week, to help add value to all aspects of their children’s education.”
“This year, we are again thrilled to announce the Commonwealth Bank’s generous sponsorship of the P&C of the Year Awards, supporting nominees from across Qld as they profile the contributions made to their school community. Video presentations articulate the strength of P&Cs and how they have successfully engaged parents and school community members.”
Prizes of $1000 will be awarded to a P&C in each of eight P&Cs Qld Area locations across Queensland. From these Area winners, one exceptional school will win an additional $4000 and the title of “Queensland P&C of the Year”.
Commonwealth Bank’s Head of School Banking and Youth, Veronica Howarth, says the award program represents an opportunity for parents and citizens’ associations to profile the important work they do to support their state school communities.
