Term Meeting Date

About the NSDC
NSDC is an alliance of P&C Associations covering a broad area of Northern Sydney generally north of the harbour and the Parramatta River. We network with other District Councils in NSW, and collaborate with other organisations with common interests. CHS P&C Assn is a member of the NSDC and the CHS P&C President is the designated delegate.

It is a completely independent body which does not receive financial support from the Government, the Department of Education or any other external body.

It is 100% volunteers; doesn't employ staff, and doesn't sell products or services such as insurance. Volunteer activities are protected by insurance for Public, Professional and Statutory Liability.

It is primarily focused on school matters, but also advocates for matters which may affect families in pre-school and post-school education and training.

It is strictly non-party political, but may get involved in lobbying politicians on matters to do with its mission – supporting the public education of our children. It also raises issues with government and other agencies, including the Department of Education. The combined strength of many P&Cs often works better than individual P&Cs with the same problem working in their own local school vacuums, where often their only source of advice is their own Principal.

The Minister's newly imposed P&C Federation Legislation and Constitution has characteristics that tend to isolate P&Cs from other P&Cs and the P&C Federation, in contrast with the extensive networking that other lobby groups such as the Principals Councils and the Teachers Federation enjoy with their integrated regional and central structures. As an example of organised political lobbying by school parent organisations, see the NSW Council of Catholic School Parents site: www.ccsp.catholic.edu.au/elections and the latest newsletter www.ccsp.catholic.edu.au/2015/20150202/ (28 March State Election article)

District Councils are provided for in the Education Act (section 115) but due to recent changes in the P&C Associations Incorporation Act, can no longer elect to be members of the NSW P&C Federation.

Membership of the NSDC is free and all P&Cs are very welcome to send delegates or any other of their members.

    Volunteers Wanted

    Volunteering in the uniform shop is a great way to get to know the school and community. You will get to know our group of friendly and dedicated volunteers. It is not all work as we get together twice a year for social events, usually to try out multi cultural food and cuisine that the volunteers made from home. You may take a look at "What we do" at the uniform shop events. Come in and we'd love you to join our big uniform shop family.

  • What is the Parent Network?

    The parent network co-ordinators for each year group maintain a list of contact details of all interested parents in their year group. This list is circulated to those on the list, enabling parents to be able to contact other parents in their child's year.

     

    The parent network co-ordinators may organise social events during the year, send information emails, and ask for help at certain school functions.

     

    How do I join?

    Fill in your details or email your network co-ordinator or fill in a hardcopy form that is available at the school office.

  • Would you like to get more involved but not sure where you fit?

    The P&C has a variety of functions and there are many opportunities to get involved: view the list of roles within the P&C.

    For further information about any of these roles, please contact the President  or the Secretary .

     

    Uniform Shop Volunteers

    Volunteer in the uniform shop on a regular basis.

    Please note that a Working With Children Check (WWCC) is required for all volunteers. See more on our info sheet.

    Apply online for your WWCC - its free and can be used for other organisations that require it from you.

     

    Committee Members

    Come along to the general P&C meeting - there are 2 meetings each term on either a Tuesday or Thursday night.

    Join one of the P&C committees - uniform, fundraising, building - and have a say in how things are run.

     

    Parent Representative on Teacher Interview Panel

    Would you like to represent the parent body on teacher interview panels as required? There is a small amount of training to do first.

  • The P&C supports the school with specific projects and events where the school cannot afford the cost, but these projects can only go ahead if the P&C can afford it.

     

    Parent Contributions

    While funding is sought via grants and sponsorship for specific projects where appropriate, parents are asked to contribute to the P&C to enable these projects to continue. Suggested contribution amounts are:

    Building Fund (Tax Deductible): $150 per student

    General Fund: $90 per student

     

    Contributions can be made with your school fees.

  • The P&C has gathered resources from various speakers and these are available for parents - please see the Parent Resource page.
