What is a P&C? Stands for Parents and Citizens Association which is an all voluntary association consisting of members who are either parents of students or someone from the local community who supports the school. The P&C Constitution, set by WACSSO, gives the Executive Committee the guidelines to manage the P&C.
Who is WACSSO? “The Western Australian Council of State School Organization’s Inc”, the peak body representing parents of public school children in Western Australia. WACSSO provides services and representation at State and National level to approximately 640 Parents and Citizens Associations (P&Cs) in Western Australia”
