P&C

Research has shown that parents involvement in a child’s education makes a significant contribution to the child’s success at school.  Our P&C fosters, facilitates and encourages parent and carer involvement in the student’s educational experience at Belmont State School.

Through the Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) community minded people, parents and citizens, can take on a more formal role to assist our school in a variety of ways including:

  • To foster general community interest in educational matters.

  • Encourage closer cooperation between the parents of students attending the school, other members of the community, staff and students of the school.

  • To provide advice and recommendations to the Principal of the school on issues and concerns in respect of students and the general operation and management of the school.

  • To provide or assist in the provision of financial or other resources or services for the benefit of students of the school.

  • To perform any other functions as the Minister may determine, not inconsistent with the Education (General Provisions) Act 2006.
