Your P&C

Working together to support the students and staff at Maylands Peninsula Primary School.

The P&C (Parents & Citizens Association) is responsible for some crucial tasks of our school including running the canteen, uniform shop and fundraising activities.  The P&C organise events for the school community that our kids love and also provide invaluable additional funds for the school.

In recent years, the P&C have donated funds to cover the cost of Mathletics for all students, purchased iPads, laptops and robots for classrooms, organised the recycling program, and most recently installed wonderful additions to the school playgrounds and completed the vibrant and positive toilet project.

Read the P&C FAQ's for more information about the P&C, what it does and how you can get involved.

Fundraising

The P&C is trialling a new style of connecting with parents and caregivers and sharing involvement in fundraising.

We are looking for representatives from Year 4, Year 5, Pre-primary and Kindy to be involved in the role described below. We already have representatives for 2022  for Year 1, 2, 3 and 6. Please contact fundraising@mpps.wa.edu.au or catch up with Megan Parker if you would like to get involved.

Function of parent representative/s

  • Informally communicate relevant information from the P&C to the parents and caregivers in your cohort who don't have time to attend meetings

  • Coordinate and communicate with the volunteers (rosters, reminders etc)
