Surfers Paradise State School P&C Association

​Our P&C is an essential part of our school.  P&C volunteers are dedicated parents and community members who want to contribute to the management and improvement of our school.

The P&C Association is managed by an executive committee who, along with other P&C members, work closely with the school principal for the benefit of the students of our school.

2018 P&C Executive:

President - Mel Harris

Vice-President - Functions - Rachelle Silvas

Vice-President - Membership & Support - Greg Tosh

Vice-President - Marketing & Branding - Paul Madden

Secretary - Jocelyn Szijarto

Treasurer - Rod Clementson


Our AGM is held in March each year.

Our P&C Association:

  • consults on school policy decisions
  • financial planning and budgeting
  • manages the uniform shop
  • assists with school functions
  • plans events and fund-raising activities
  • applies for grants


P&C membership is free and you can choose whether you attend the regular meetings.  Even if you are not able to attend the meetings, being a P&C member is a great way to learn what is happening at the school and to have your say.

The main roles of the P&C are:

  • To raise money to provide facilities and resources for the benefit of our children, to enhance their learning opportunities within the school environment.
  • To facilitate ongoing and constructive communication between the parent body, teaching and administrative staff at the school.
  • To provide and run the uniform shop.
  • To encourage and provide opportunities for friendship and networking within the school community.


Each year, the P&C Association donates $10,000 towards the school budget and donates money to the library for books.  We have recently successfully applied for a grant to provide seating and other furnishings for the hall and are working towards financing improvements for the pool.  In 2014 we funded both the Reading Eggs and Mathletics programmes for each class and student.

We regularly hold both a Mothers' and Fathers' Day stall as well as two school discos each year.  Other fund-raising activities in the year include raffles and sausage sizzles.

We also host a morning tea to thank our teachers on World Teachers' Day each year.

Can you help?

If you are a parent or a carer of the school and you possess particular skills which may benefit the P&C in their fundraising and social endeavours, then please contact the P & C by email or by leaving a message with the school office.
