About the P&C


Our P&C is a group of interested people that work to bring the school and the TPS community together to support the quality education of our children.

Turramurra Public School Parents & Citizens Association (P&C) meets once a term in the Library. Check the newsletter for exact dates.

Parent volunteers are elected to act as an Executive Committee; however the real strength of the P&C comes from the ideas, effort and energy of all the parents who make up the membership.

The P&C’s objectives are to:

The achievement of these objectives is underpinned by fundraising throughout the year. Various events and activities are coordinated by the P&C and run by volunteers.


Membership of the P&C is open to everyone – parents, caregivers, grandparents, teachers, and the broader community. To join, simply attend a P&C meeting and pay a membership fee ($1). Your membership is effective from the following meeting. Click here for more details


Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend P&C meetings. The meetings are informal, friendly and a great way to find out what is happening at school. No one is pressured to do anything at meetings - feel free to just sit and listen. If you not able to attend a meeting but would like to know what was discussed, you can read the minutes on the TPS website.

What do we do with the funds we raise for the school?

The P&C raises money to finance a range of projects and programs and is subject to rules as to how money is raised, applied and accounted for. These rules are contained in the Constitution and the School Manual on Financial Management.

Requests for expenditure are considered based on their support of the School’s objectives. Over time  strategic planning exercises have been undertaken to determine the focus of projects over the short, medium and long term. This involved:

Here are just some of the initiatives funded in recent years by the P&C:

The P & C Voluntary Contribution

The current Government contribution to the school of approx. $60 per child per year does not cover the support needed to ensure the best education possible for our children. Parents are therefore asked to help close the gap through the voluntary P&C Contribution. This is the main source of income for the P&C (used for a range of projects as voted for by members). A request is sent home early each school year explaining how these contributions are used.

Class Parents

At the start of each year, two volunteers from each class take the role of Class Parents. Class Parents act as liaison between teachers and parents and help to ensure the smooth running of events at the school.


Every year, the P&C oversees the running of a wide variety of events at TPS. Some events are fundraisers, others are designed to bring the TPS community together and some aim to achieve both of these goals! 

Each year group (eg Year 4) is assigned an event (or events), with the parents of the students in the year group responsible for organisation. The Class Parents play an important coordination role.

In a typical year, events include:
