Parents & Citizens Association (P&C)

The Poseidon Primary Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) is an active and dynamic group of dedicated parents and carers who have a significant input into student wellbeing, providing a wide range of educational resources for students and fostering the great sense of community which exists at our school.  They support the school by fundraising throughout the year, managing The Canteen and running The Uniform Shop.  Poseidon Primary P&C raised $24,000 in 2016 thanks to the dedication of our fantastic members and the support of our wonderful school community, and we have lots of new and exciting ideas planned for 2017.

The objectives of the Poseidon Primary P&C are:

  • Foster community interest in education
  • Promote closer liaison between school and the community
  • Assist in the provision of school amenities

Parents are able to help out in many ways; by attending the monthly committee meetings, going on the roster to help in The Canteen or Uniform Shop, or volunteering to help with fundraising events such as discos and sausage sizzles.  The Poseidon Primary P&C operates one of the only full-time public primary school canteens in the northern suburbs.  They also provide funding for online learning programs, such as Reading Eggs and Mathletics, and purchase texts for classroom reading comprehension and spelling programs.

P&C Committee meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00pm in the Staffroom.  This dedicated and hard working group needs the support of more parents and families, and parents and carers are always welcome and encouraged to attend, share their ideas and provide input on decision making.  The committee members are happy to chat to parents and carers who cannot attend about any ideas or feedback and are able to bring issues to the meeting for discussion.

Our 2017 P&C Executive Committee members are:

President Shane Dowling
Vice President Melinda McAndrew
Secretary Terase McDonald
Treasurer Amy Tomlinson
Fundraising Co-ordinator Anna Albrecht
Uniform Co-ordinator Emma Fowler
Communications Co-ordinator Sarah Desforges
