    WA State Schools celebrate the power of volunteering on P&C Day WA

    16 May 2023

    Friday 19 May is P&C Day WA. This day, created by WACSSO, is an official date in the Department of Education calendar and is designed to celebrate P&Cs across the State.

Typically, P&Cs provide schools with support, including fundraising, community events, classroom resources, running canteens and uniform shops, and most importantly improving parent engagement with children’s education and building the school community. P&Cs also have special interest sub-committees that focus on, for example, a sport, the music program, fundraising, the school grounds, or school community engagement areas such as dad’s groups.
