Parents and Citizens' (P&C) Associations work in productive partnership with their school principal and the community to promote the interests of the school, and facilitate its development and further improvement, to achieve the best possible outcomes for students.
P&Cs provide feedback and advice on school policies and activities, assist in providing resources to enhance student outcomes and are involved in a variety of school activities including fundraising activities, school functions, tuckshops and outside school hours care services.
P&Cs are established under the Education (General Provisions) Act 2006 and Education (General Provisions) Regulation 2017. Queensland P&Cs are a statutory body under the Statutory Bodies Financial Arrangements Act 1982. They are not incorporated entities under the Associations Incorporations Act 1981.
The Department of Education and P&Cs Qld work together to support state school P&Cs under a partnership agreement.
Under the agreement, a P&C Services Manager is funded by the department and based at P&Cs Qld.
P&Cs Qld support principals and P&Cs with the full range of P&C matters and provide access to professional development opportunities for P&Cs.
