P & C Association Inc.

Cottesloe Primary School P&C Association Welcomes You.

Hello and welcome back to a new year at Cottesloe Primary School. 2017 is a particularly important year for our school as it marks its 120th Anniversary and celebrates its long-held reputation as a wonderful, local, primary school.

For many students and parents, it is a happy return to familiarity after the holidays. But, for many, it is a brand new adventure – especially for the three groups of Kindergarten classes. 

We would like to extend a special welcome to those of you who have joined the School for the first time and invite you to learn more about the Parent & Community Association below. 

Who Are We?

The School’s P&C is made up of parents and community members who join together to ensure that Cottesloe Primary School continues to be a friendly, open and inclusive place for all its students and families.

We aim to help improve the school’s facilities; organise social occasions for students and families; support the school administration and teaching staff; fundraiser for the benefit of the school; advocate on behalf of families; provide essential services, such as the Uniform Shop and Lunch Orders; represent the School within the wider community and maintain the wonderful local school atmosphere that Cottesloe Primary School has enjoyed for 120 years.

We also aim to have some fun along the way.

How to get involved?

As different generations of students pass from Kindy to Year 6 and beyond, there is always a need for new volunteers to jump on board and help the P&C do what they do! 

If you have some spare time and would like to be more involved in your child’s school life, please consider joining the P&C, in whatever way you can. There are many different roles and opportunities, or you may just wish to come along to a meeting every now and then. The door is always open. The P&C is made up of a diverse group of Mums and Dads who lend their skills and experience in ways big and small. 

Any time that you volunteer is greatly appreciated. It is also a great way to connect with the place that plays such an important part in your child’s life. 

If you would like to learn more, please come along to our upcoming General meeting on Wednesday 22nd November at 9am in the staff room.

Each year the P&C holds an AGM to open positions to the community, in accordance with WACCSO guidelines ( the West Australian governing body for Parent & Community Associations). All are welcome and your input as a parent is always valued. To see the roles available in the P&C and how you can help, click here.

This year, we hope to increase the Fundraising/Events Committee to help with the celebrations for the School’s 120th Anniversary. There will be several events throughout the year to mark this historic milestone, and plenty of opportunities for volunteers to join in the fun! Duties can range from planning/researching a particular event; marketing; fundraising and event management.

If you are unable to attend the AGM, please check the School noticeboards/website for further meeting dates throughout the year.

The CottFathers are also looking out for new members to come on board.

If you have any questions or would like to know more about the Parent & Community Association, please feel free to contact one of us. Our details are below and we all love a chat!

Many thanks,

The Cottesloe Primary School P&C Association.
