Parents, carers and the community

As a parent or carer, you are an important part of our school community. We offer a range of services to support you and your family.

Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C)

Our Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C) is made up of parents and carers, teachers and community members. The P&C meets regularly to contribute to decision-making, developing policies and management plans as well as fundraising.

Middleton Public School P&C (Parents & Citizen) organisation promotes the interest of our school by bringing parents, carers, friends and teachers into close cooperation with each other.

Our P&C is the basis of an important partnership between the parents/carers and the school. The active involvement of parents is essential for a rewarding school environment. By having a vibrant P&C we can together provide excellence in education in a caring environment for all students of Middleton Public School.

The P&C holds montly meetings on the first Tuesday of each month. All parents are welcome to attend. At the meeting, parents hear updates from the Principal and can share ideas about how to make Middleton Public School a better school. At these meetings we also share information about new programs and uncoming events at the school.

Being a member of the P&C is about being involved in your school community. Your level of involvement is up to you, it can be as little or as much as you want.
