Craigslea SHS P&C welcomes all students, parents/caregivers, community members and staff to our school community.

We are a dedicated group of parents and citizens who want to contribute to building our school community. Will you be a part of it?

We are looking to extend our support. All parents/caregivers are eligible to be members of the P&C and we welcome your involvement whether it be attendance at monthly meetings, sub-committee meetings (Craigslea Volleyball Academy (CVA), CHIMPS) or helping out at the Craigslea SHS Canteen and sub-committee fundraising activities.

P&C meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month, commencing at 7:00pm in the Craigslea SHS Library. Look for the "P&C News" section of the school newsletter or the events calendar for meeting details and related information. Event notifications are also provided on the Craigslea SHS Facebook page.

How we make a Difference

Our P&C Association takes an active support role to:

  • provide close cooperation between students, parents/caregivers, community members and staff
  • provide a forum for discussion and decision-making (within the parameters provided by the Constitution)
  • through effective management, oversee the enterprise of the P&C i.e. the Craigslea SHS Canteen so that it first provides an effective service and thereby, secondly, provides a source of revenue
  • provide resources to enhance student learning and improve the school environment (often by raising funds through the Craigslea SHS Canteen and sub committees - CVA, CHIMPS and Voluntary Building Fund), and finally
  • support the operation of the school, promote the school and the interests of our students to the wider community, and help in ensuring that Craigslea SHS is a positive and inspiring learning place for our students.

P&C revenue is derived from the net operational profit of the Craigslea SHS Canteen (though we are ever mindful that this is a core business service), and a Voluntary Building Fund​ – current nominated rate @ $50 per family per year. Please note that we do not have a planned 'Fund Raising Program', and that revenue derived from the Craigslea SHS Canteen is very much dependent upon a constant pool of volunteers.

"Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm" (Ralph Emerson).

There are many things we - individually and as a school community - may wish to achieve for our school as we strive to make it the best that it can be. Two things, will inevitably promote success in this endeavour. One is our will to work together, and the other is our enthusiasm to do so, and to translate our dreams, hopes and expectations into reality. The challenge to make our school the best that it can be is ours - one and all, but it is a challenge worth pursuing, not as an end in itself, but because of the inevitable consequence for our children's success and their future.
