About Wilkins P&C

The Wilkins Public School P&C is an engaged, approachable and friendly group of parents, carers and teachers who work to enhance our children's educational experience. We support WPS so that the teachers can deliver the best educational programmes and enhance the curriculum where we are able. The P&C puts much time and effort into raising funds for the school which can be spent on resources that may not otherwise be available.

Our major fund-raising and events include: our biannual Fair Day (even years); Mothers' Day Stall, Community BBQs to support events like the annual Music Extravaganzas and Welcome Evenings for Kindergarten and Stage 3; annual Walk-a-thon and staffing and coordinating the on-site uniform shop.

The P&C is also an invaluable resource for parents providing opportunities to understand the school's needs and priorities, to work with and get to know the teachers and staff, and to share our school experiences as parents and carers. We are always looking for ways in which parents and carers can contribute to the school using their existing skills and expertise.

We welcome new parents and carers at any time of the year. We truly feel that everyone in the WPS community has something to contribute, a valid view of our education system and we feel all contributions are valuable. Annual membership (each calendar year) is $2 and paying for membership ensures that you may vote within the meeting.

Meetings

The Wilkins P&C usually holds meetings on the third Tuesday of the month in the school library at 7pm. Please check the school calendar on this site to confirm precise meeting dates. Children are welcome as long as they can keep themselves quietly occupied within the library.

Meeting agendas are published in the Wilkins Weekly in the lead up to the monthly meeting and minutes are available on the Newsletters & Notes page or by email if you are a paid P&C member.
