The Chatswood Public School P&C meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month (through the school terms) in the library at 7.30pm. The school Principal and executive staff members attend. The meetings are friendly and informal and everyone is welcome! You need to donate a gold coin ($1 or $2) once each year to be a member of the P&C.
The meeting dates for this year are on the calendar.
A meeting agenda is usually circulated via the weekly school newsletter the week before each meeting. The minutes of the meetings are also available here.
How can I get an item on the meeting agenda?
Any member of the P&C can request an agenda item to be added to a meeting. Agenda items usually are one of three types:
1. an item seeking or providing information
2. a suggestion to do something that does not involve spending P&C money
3. a suggestion to do something that does involve spending P&C money
A P&C member who would like to request an agenda item should contact the P&C President or Secretary no later than seven (7) days before the next scheduled meeting, so that the item can be listed. It is expected that the person requesting the item will normally attend the meeting to speak to that item.
How can I make a suggestion to the P&C?
A suggestion to do something (whether involving spending money or not) should be submitted in writing to the P&C President or Secretary. Having an initial discussion with an Executive Officer is likely to be helpful. A proposal is usually not a lengthy document (it may be less than 1 page). For more information about preparing a proposal, see the P&C Standard Operating Guidelines.
Can I just come and watch a meeting?
Yes. You are welcome to come and observe any meeting. There is no pressure to speak, but also lots of opportunity if you want to!
