Parents, carers and the community

As a parent or carer, you are an important part of our school community. We offer a range of services to support you and your family.

Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C)

Our Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C) is made up of parents and carers, teachers and community members. The P&C meets regularly to contribute to decision-making, developing policies and management plans as well as fundraising.

Douglas Park Public School 's Parents and Citizens (P&C) Association is a welcoming group of parents and community members who work hard to provide extra opportunities for the students of the school.

They meet every 2nd Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm in the school staffroom (in school terms).

Everyone is welcome. New members are always welcome!

The P&C organises many fundraising events throughout the year and help is always appreciated.

Our primary focus is fund raising for the school. We are an active and friendly group, but always need more helpers. Money raised purchases resources for the children in the school.

These activities include such things as: Mothers' Day stall, Fathers' Day stall, raffles, school fete, trivia nights, and discos.

Mrs Tammy Selfeand Mrs Crystal Henderson runs the uniform shop on behalf of the P&C. It is located at the school in the canteen area. An order form is on this page and can be handed in at the office. Alternatively, you may contact Mrs Selfe on the telephone number on the order form.

The P&C organise Scholastic Book Club periodically (Mrs Harvey).

Our school canteen  is staffed by a small but lovely group of parents, led by our volunteer manager, Cherrie Harvey.

It provides:

  • low cost healthy foods
  • a friendly environment for volunteers and children
  • lunch is provided to all volunteers
