Parents & Community - Parents & Citizens Association

Dear Parents /Caregivers,

On behalf of the Parents & Citizens Association, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all new and returning families.

I’m sure you will find that York District High School is an innovative and exciting school. At York District High there is a drive to ensure the best outcomes for all of our students. This can only be achieved where you have a working partnership of passionate, enthusiastic teaching and administration staff, direct involvement by parents in assisting teachers and staff which is complemented by a proactive and supportive parent body.

This entitles you to be involved in the decision making of the P&C Association. The P&C endeavours to support the school community and school board by coordinating a number of social and fundraising events, from Art Exhibitions to raffles and cake stalls. Donations of funds raised are used to purchase equipment and resources for the school such as laptops and books as well as provide financial support for end of school award nights. The P&C also operates and manages the school’s Canteen and Uniform Shop.

At this time I would like to encourage you to consider the $15.00 voluntary contribution which can be paid to the school at the beginning of the year, our P&C relies on these funds to help support our students and our school. In the past with funds received and raised we have been able to provide new Interactive Whiteboards, new library books, literacy & numeracy resources, and multi‐media equipment, as well as a Cadet equipment shed.

Becoming involved with the P&C is a great way to keep informed, to contribute your thoughts to the quality education of our children and to make new friends. Not only will you be supporting the school community but you will be supported by the school community. You can learn new skills, and gain a clear understanding of how the school operates. This is a great opportunity to share in the school’s decision‐making process and shape the future.

Your contribution can be as large or small as you can manage, but your ongoing support of the P&C Association is invaluable.  The P&C meet in the Innovation & Learning Centre at 3.30pm on the 3rd and 9th Monday of every term and all parents are welcome to attend.

REMEMBER: It’s the little things you do that make a real difference, we need as much parent input as possible, come a long and have your say.

Please find below the P&C Membership Form, a uniform order form and the current Canteen menu.

Join our York District High School P&C Facebook page and ‘like’ it to keep informed and the York District High School newsletter for updates on all school and P&C matters.

Yours Faithfully, Stacy Stanfield, York District High School P&C President.
