Welcome to the
Who We Are
Mackellar Girls P&C Association is made up of parents of current students, and friends and citizens from within the school catchment area, who meet together to enhance our daughters' schooling experience by providing services to the students and school families and through raising funds for the school.
It achieves these purposes by:
overseeing the operations of its two businesses (the Canteen and the Uniform shop), and seeks volunteers to assist in these ventures
planning, organising and carrying out fund-raising activities
making donations to the school to enhance our daughters' learning experience
augmenting parents' knowledge of relevant education and student development issues and promoting student welfare

Join Our P&C
All are welcome to come along to a P&C meeting and, if desired, to join. The P&C welcomes new members who want to support the work and contribute to the smooth functioning of the P&C. Even if you can't make all the meetings, your attendance at others is highly valued.
Joining the P&C ($2 per calendar year) enables you to vote and stand for a position at the AGM (refer to the Constitution and Rules for details). You can also volunteer to help in the Canteen or Uniform shops - all assistance is gratefully received. You will never be pressured by the P&C Executive to join or to do a job you don't want to do.
