The Homestead State School Parents and Citizens Association is an active and supportive group and valued part of our school and wider community. The association awarded its first life time member in 2005, Mrs Kaye Griffiths who has actively been involved in our school as a past student, mother, grandmother and executive treasurer for many years.

The association’s fundraising activities are varied and extremely productive. The two major fundraisers that the P&C run annually are the catering at the Pentland camp draft and the footy tipping competition which is very well supported by our regional community and raises a great deal of funding which is directly channelled back into the education of our students.

With the support of the majority of the community, the Homestead State School P&C association have, in recent years, supplied the school with:

  • Annual purchase of end of year book awards
  • Annual purchase of cross country medallions
  • Monetary donations to assist in the purchase of literacy, numeracy and sporting equipment
  • Annual funding of arts council and other cultural events
  • Funding of fuel for school grounds
  • Working bees
  • Funding for all school children to attend annual school camp
  • Support children (year 6/7) to attend leadership camps
  • Funding for mentoring programs
  • In 2011 purchased a school shirt for each student when the uniform design changed

Office bearers of the association are elected at the Annual General Meeting held in March of each year. Although it is not a requirement for the association to meet monthly, we do meet each month to ensure there is a clear communication channel and that we are able to achieve our school goals annually.

The association’s aim is to improve educational and recreational facilities by the provision of materials and equipment not supplied by the Education Department. The association also works with the principal to foster parent/teacher co-operation and local interest in educational matters. The P&C works cooperatively with the school staff in developing mandatory operational plans, school annual reports, other school policies and review processes.

Membership is open to all parents and community members over the age of 18 years all of whom are eligible to attend monthly meetings. Membership forms are available through the P&C executive secretary and need to be completed for insurance purposes at P&C held events.
