The parents and citizens’ (P&C) association represents the parents of all the students attending Dakabin State School. It is an essential and enthusiastic partner of the Dakabin State School and the local community. The P&C forms a vital link with school management and administration through planning and consultation, and curriculum functions in an attractive progressive learning environment. You are encouraged to add your voice to the process by becoming a P&C member.
As a school community we have been most fortunate in that our parents have been generous and the organized activities well supported. As a parent you are no doubt bombarded by many requests for support from a host of organisations. Dakabin’s P&C endeavours to keep our requests to a minimum. However, with ongoing improvements and replacement, the P&C is in need of a consistent cash flow to meet all these needs.
The P&C meets on the third Tuesday of each month in the staff room at 6.30pm. The Principal attends these meetings and willingly discusses matters relating to the whole school. Meeting dates are advised in the newsletter. The part you play in the P&C rests entirely with yourself. However, the P&C encourages you to adopt an active role. You may be assured that the workload is made light because of the number of individuals who choose to participate and your children do benefit in more ways than one through your active involvement. Active involvement can include: volunteering in our tuckshop, joining the craft group who make things to sell at various stalls throughout the year; working in the classroom; and supporting fundraising activities (our major means of revenue).
As a service to the parents and students of Dakabin, the P&C is responsible for the tuckshop and uniform shop. All profits are used to provide additional facilities and resources for Dakabin’s students.
