Strategic Plan

Strategic Plan 2019

The P&C raises the bulk of its funds through voluntary parent contributions to the P&C General and Building Funds. The P&C works closely with the school towards building a stronger school community where all children benefit.
P&C Contributions are vital to ensure key programs, equipment and initiatives are maintained. The more contributions that are received, the more opportunities we have to invest in our children's development and education.

Suggested contributions are

  • Building Fund $150 (tax deductible)

The CHS P&C Building Fund is approved by the ATO for tax deductibility of donations credited to the fund. The associated Deductible Gift Recipient status (DGR) dates from 1 July 2002. If you have made the contribution to the Chatswood High School Parents and Citizens' Association Building Fund you are able to claim the payment as a charitable donation deduction in your personal income tax return. For more information about charitable donations see the ATO's web site FAQ. "Where donors are not issued with receipts, other statements and records can be used to help in the preparation of their tax return." Donations to the CHS P&C Building Fund are included with school fee payments and will appear on the receipt given by the school. A specific receipt from the P&C is not required.

  • General Fund $90

Donations to the P&C General Fund are not tax deductible.
Although the Association is registered with the ACNC, the registration isn’t clear about the distinction in deductibility of the two funds.

Parent contributions are collected with payment of school fees.

The P&C would also appreciate any other help you may be able to give - please fill in the Get Involved form if you haven't already.
