LANE COVE WEST PUBLIC SCHOOL P&C ROLES

Being involved in the P&C Executive is a great way to contribute to your school, both through providing ideas and input into school projects, helping to build a vibrant school community, or helping to raise funds to support out school.

All office bearers must be elected annually. At the AGM, all roles are declared open and anyone may nominate for a position. This year, a number of roles must be vacated and we must have new volunteers for several roles.

You must be a current financial member to stand, (you can join at the meeting), and it is expected that you will attend meetings regularly and take an active part in the discussions and activities of the P&C. Executive positions can be held by one person for a maximum of three years.
