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.
