Parents & Citizens Association

Our P&C has an important job to do and we would love you to be part of it! 

The Proserpine State High School has an active and enthusiastic Parents and Citizen’s Association. P&C Associations are an essential part of the school and membership is open to any adult who wants to contribute to the school, including parents of children attending the school, the school's teachers and staff, and interested people in the wider community.

2018 P&C Executive Committee: 

President: Samantha Lane   

Vice-President: Leigh Skead 

Secretary: Christie Penhallurick

Treasurer: Julie MacDonald

Canteen Convenor: Sue Walker



Why join the P&C?  

It is a great way of keeping informed about school activities and participating in school events. P&C Associations create a strong sense of community and generate positive outcomes for the school, contributing to the wider school community and the education of your child. Research shows that parents who are engaged in their child's education make a significant contribution to the child's success at school.


Aim of the Proserpine State High School P&C:

  • To support students to have the best learning experience whilst at Proserpine State High School
  • To encourage close cooperation among parents, pupils, teaching staff and the community

  • Provide feedback on school policies and activities

  • Provide a canteen service in the school

  • Engage in future school planning processes

  • Provide additional resources to enhance student learning and improve the school environment

  • Provide opportunities for parents to be involved in their child's education and broader school community.

Recent Projects: 

  • Committed funds to assist with upgrading and modernising student facilities
  • Supporting student wellbeing initiatives 
  • Supporting behaviour and excellence incentives

  • The P&C also regularly supports (financially and otherwise) QCS breakfast, World Teachers Day & Support Staff Day, school sport representative  and academic bursaries, e-learning bursaries and special items requested such as leadership committee projects. 
Note: Bursaries are limited to one application per year per student and are to be submitted in writing by the student to the P&C.

P&C Meetings: 

On the 3rd Wednesday of each month (unless in school holidays) from 6.00 – 8.00pm at the school Student Advisory Centre Meeting room. Attendance at meetings is a great opportunity to find out more about what is happening in the school, its future plans and how these will affect your child(ren) and your family.  It is also a venue for parents to voice concerns, raise issues and discuss ideas both with the Principal and with other parents.

P&C Canteen:

The Proserpine State High School P&C canteen has a wonderful tradition of volunteers who contribute their time. Volunteering at the P&C canteen provides an opportunity to network (meet teachers), gain skills, confidence and experience. Canteen volunteers are usually involved in the preparation of fresh healthy foods for the students to enjoy during breakfast, morning tea and lunch. Volunteer hours can be 2 hours once a week/ fortnight or monthly and the canteen convenor can be contacted 7am – 2:30, school days on 49450119.
All profits are directed back to benefit the students.
