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

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, German Immersion and Extension or Science/Maths Parent support groups. Alternatively, parents may choose to respond to surveys, attend parent forums or volunteer at the Tuckshop.

P&C Parent support groups (sub-committees)

Parent support groups allow parents to become involved in programs their student’s access. The support provided by these groups contributes to the great success of many school programs by organised support and fundraising. Each parent support group operates as a sub-committee of the P&C Association.

We have several established parent support groups including:

P&C voluntary contribution

In 2012 the P&C Association introduced a Fundraising Voluntary Contribution for the purpose of raising funds to continue the air conditioning of Kenmore State High School. The P&C Association provides the only means of achieving this goal as government funding does not extend to air conditioning Brisbane schools. Details about this fully tax deductible scheme is included on the P&C latest news page of the web site.
