Parents and citizens association

The Bellingen Public School parents and citizens association (P&C) consists of parents, community members and teaching staff who aim to assist in providing facilities and equipment for the school while promoting the interest and welfare of students.

The P&C meets at 7pm on the first Monday of each month in the school library. The meeting dates appear in advance in the weekly school newsletter. Meetings are friendly and relaxed and parents are welcome to attend meetings on an occasional or regular basis. Normal P&C business is discussed at meetings as well as an opportunity to raise an issue that may be of concern to you, to share a fundraising idea, to offer your expertise in an area or just get to know more about our school community.

We believe that Bellingen Public School provides an educational setting that reflects and supports the diverse community it serves and we trust that joining our community will be a happy and rewarding experience for both you and your child.
