We would love you to come along and get involved!
The P&C is involved in a variety of school activities including financial planning, tuckshop, fundraising activities and school functions. The P&C plays a vital role in our school. It is an opportunity for parents and carers to become involved in their children's education at Pullenvale State School and to support our school community. The P&C Association is the parent body of the school with various sub-committees that work for special purposes.
The P&C is a forum where the school community can discuss their values, hopes and ideals for the school. Communication between all members of the school community is essential: the P&C, the Principal, teachers, administration staff, students and interested members of the local community.
The P&C Association meets at the school on the second Monday of each month commencing at 6:30pm in the Library. Dates are advised through facebook and the school newsletter.
Every year the school holds a variety of functions, which serve to build our sense of community, as well as to raise funds. This is very much an opportunity for new families to meet other parents. At the start of each year the P&C run a movie night to welcome new families to the school and for current school families to catch up after the Christmas break. The P&C also has a group of dedicated parents who organise Mothers' Day and Fathers' Day stalls where children can purchase small inexpensive presents for family members. Volunteers to assist are always welcome.
Every two years, in collaboration with the school, the local community and our generous sponsors the P&C organises the Pullenvale Spring Fair. Rides, live music, market stalls, food and fireworks highlight this community event, which is great fun for young and old alike. Please contact us at the above email addresses if you would like to be involved in this fantastic event.

Parent Class Representative
Class representatives assist in the co-ordination of class activities. Each year a parent from each class volunteers to act as a Class Representative. Parents are encouraged to take an active role in welcoming new parents to the school, assisting the teacher to organise help, monitoring class fundraising functions, being available for school excursions and emailing out information for the P&C.
