Building a stronger school community through parental involvement
The P&C Association plays an important role in today's secondary education system and Kenmore State High School is fortunate to have strong active parent participation. The P&C Association works very closely with our school towards building a stronger school community where all students benefit.
The parents at Kenmore State High School have high expectations of the school. They expect their children to receive a world class education which is not only responsive to their needs, interests and aptitudes but is also responsive to the needs of the society in which they live.
The P&C Association fosters productive partnerships between parents and teachers to help provide the best possible educational, cultural and social experiences for our students. When parents and the school work together we can ensure that the vision and direction of the school is compatible with that of the parents and the broader community.
Our P&C Association strives to build a stronger school community by:
- Contributing to school policy decisions
- Building active parent support groups
- Providing financial contributions to enhance the learning environment
- Managing a nutritious and healthy Tuckshop
- Operating an efficient school uniform shop
- Supporting school activities and events
- Cultivating school-community partnerships
- Talent Encouragement Program
At Kenmore State High School parents may choose to become involved in a number of ways. There are opportunities to join groups or sub-committees of interest, such as the P&C Executive committee, School Council (by election through the P&C), Environment, Music Support and German Immersion parent support groups. Alternatively, parents may choose to respond to surveys, attend parent forums or volunteer at the Tuckshop.
