Parents and Citizens

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.

Research shows that a vital ingredient for a student's engagement and participation in learning is parental involvement. Children need help, support and involvement from their parents to succeed at school, and a great way to do this is by being a part of P&C. All members of the school community are very welcome.

Newcastle High School's Parents & Citizens Association is a group of parents, guardians, grandparents, teachers and interested people who are committed to ensuring the best possible education for our students. The P&C allows parents and carers to be partners in the education process and to play an active role in the education of their children. Our P&C helps maintain the strong partnership between our school and parents & carers, raises funds to assist the school, and builds stronger ties with our community.

Our Activities

The P&C's best known activity is fundraising: we identify areas of need and raise funds for those specific items. But we do much more than that: we get to talk directly with teachers and staff about the school, we sit on interview panels for hiring of staff, we assist at school functions, help out with gardening and beautification of the grounds, and any other way we can.

Getting Involved

The Newcastle High School P&C Association meets for a Parent Forum at 5.30pm on a designated Monday, each term in the Library (excluding school holidays, check the school website events and newsletter for dates). Entry is through the main foyer on Parkway Avenue. You can just listen, have your say, or you can put your hand up to help out with various activities.
