Welcome to our P&C!

In Queensland state schools, there is a parent body called the Parents and Citizens Association. 

Commonly called 'the P&C', this association is a group of parents, carers and members of the community who work together to make a difference to the school and local area. Sometimes called 'PTA' or 'P&F' in other school systems, a Queensland P&C does not have a governance role or involvement in day-to-day matters, but does provide important advice to the Principal, who in turns consults the P&C for advice on many matters. 

At Tannum Sands State High School, our P&C facilitates the development and further improvement of Tannum Sands State High School e.g. policies, facilities and special programs. The P&C also promotes parent participation and encourages close cooperation between parents, students and staff. 

Our P&C offers support to the Principal, staff and student body, and gives advice on a wide range of school issues and operations. At our monthly meetings, the Principal presents an insightful Principal’s Report. You can see examples elsewhere on this P&C webpage.

At Tannum Sands State High School, the P&C also runs a uniform shop and canteen (staffed by both volunteers and paid employees of the P&C). 

Our P&C Association is also a member of the peak body, P&Cs Qld. Becoming involved in our P&C will not only help advance the above, it will also provide each member the opportunity to develop a range of personal skills. 
We aim to have as many people as possible involved in the P&C, as all help and support goes a long way towards creating the futures of all students at Tannum Sands State High School.

All parents are invited to become members of the P&C and all time and input, no matter how big or small, is greatly appreciated.

Our P&C meets on the second Thursday of the month, at 6.30pm in our Resource Centre. Please come!
