P and C Association

What is a P and C?

The P and C Association is a school-based, incorporated, not for profit organisation, registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), with membership open to parents, teachers, students and interested citizens. 

What does the P and C do?

•    Promotes the interest of the school by bringing parents, citizens, students and teaching staff into close co-operation.
•    Assists in providing facilities and equipment for the school and promoting the welfare of the students at the school.
•    Encourages parent participation in extra-curricula activities and other educational events in schools.


The Newport Public School P and C is responsible for the following services within the school:

  • canteen
  • uniform Shop
  • most fundraising efforts (for example, fundraising stalls, a-thons and social events)


These services, in addition to the voluntary contributions paid with your school fees, then support the P and C to provide the following to the school community:

  • significant funding for additional teaching resources
  • purchasing of teaching aids such as 'Smart-boards'
  • additions and improvements to the school facilities
  • additions and improvements to the school sporting facilities
  • participation in school decision making processes
  • promoting social gatherings
  • supporting the needs of parents and carers

All of these activities are only possible with the continued support of parents, carers, teachers and community members.


P and C Meetings

The P and C meetings are informal gatherings where parents and teachers may discuss the operation of the school. The Principal, and other school executives and teachers, attend and provide timely updates delivered in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Class Parents also attend to further the interests of the class they represent.

Importantly there are times where all meeting attendees may vote on various initiatives which are funded, in whole or in part, by the P and C. Without your vote at these meetings, projects may be delayed.

The P and C will communicate the agenda prior to each meeting, and you are welcome to submit items for discussion (please see below). 

Newport Public School P and C meetings are held twice per term. For scheduled meeting dates, please see the table below. Invitations to meetings, and any changes to the schedule shown below, are sent via the school newsletter, - The Natter!

All parents and carers are welcome to attend.



The P and C is largely a volunteer-based association. We are always on the lookout for graphic designers (to assist with fundraising posters and flyers), business owners (who may be able to donate a product or service for use in our fundraising endeavours) and of course volunteers to assist at one of our events.

Should you wish to participate in any way, either in an ongoing capacity or just as a one-off, please click the button below which will open an email to our fundraising team. Please include your full name and contact details and an indication of how you can assist us. We are very grateful!

 Yes, I’d like to volunteer
