The P&C Association is a vibrant and essential part of the school community. Representing the dedicated and dynamic parent cohort, the P&C plays a pivotal role in building a stronger school community where all children benefit. The P&C is about people just like you – parents, care-givers and community-minded people who want to help their school.
Why Get Involved?
Joining the P&C is a great way to show your children how much you value their education and how interested you are in what they do. Attending P&C functions or nominating for a management position provides an opportunity to network with the principal, teachers, and other parents so that you can discuss the issues that concern you and share your ideas and experiences. Our P&C needs people from all walks of life and with a range of talents who are committed to delivering great outcomes for their children and school.
Everybody has a role to play.

How Can I Get Involved?
Come along to a meeting, meet the friendly P&C members, hear the plans for upcoming events and get involved at whatever level you like (e.g. help out at fundraising events, spin a sausage, make a cake, or help coordinate an event).
We meet twice per term, on Monday night at 7pm in week 3 & week 8. The meetings are held in the Staff Room and generally run for 1-2 hours max.
We are always looking for school and community members to support our operations throughout the year, and your volunteer hours will be gratefully accepted as a contribution to assist our P&C.
However, we also understand that life is busy, and not everyone is able to donate their time to our P&C events and fundraising.
A monetary donation to HPS P&C provides an alternative way to contribute, when your schedule does not allow the capacity or flexibility to volunteer your time.
We welcome donations toward our fundraising goals at any time of the year.
