Parents & Citizens Association (P&C)

A warm welcome is extended to all parents, caregivers and other members of our school community. The P&C helps the school to further enhance the learning, physical and social environment of the school, and to raise its profile in the local area. The P& C holds regular fundraising events to support the school.

The P & C aims to:

  • promote cooperation between families, students and the school
  • assist in informing families about educational matters
  • assist in providing facilities for students.

2019 - 2020 P & C Executive

Canterbury Girls High School encourages parental involvement and values a strong partnership with its local community.

Why get involved with the P&C?

  • Hear up-to-date information about what’s happening and what’s proposed from the principal, Sue Holden, who attends each meeting. 
  • Have a say, ask questions and gain a better understanding about curriculum, school policies and activities.
  • Meet some great parents and develop strong friendships within the school and parent community.
  • International research shows that young people’s learning and development are greatly enhanced when families and schools work together.
  • Be in a better position to support your daughter’s learning, both at school and at home, and you send a clear message that her education is important to you.

2020 Update

The P&C are unable to hold any social or fundraising events this year due to COVID-19.  Our plans included a Comedy Night and Wine Tastings the funds of which, along with any successful community grants we may receive, would have been used to support school projects.  This year we planned to contribute to the following:

1. Final fit out to the new COLA outside the MPC.  Add lighting, sound and a screen to support outdoor performance.  (This will also enable hiring to the community thereby increasing revenue back to school.)
2. Extending the existing Dance Cottage studio space to create a larger performance space and flexible seating.  This includes replacing the floor and installing a kitchenette.  Will also mean functions can be held in one space with nearby car parking and school entrance.
3. Creation of a STEM maker space.
4. Upgrading a space to create a Student Wellbeing Hub.

We have therefore created a "GiveNow" account as a tax deductible fundraiser to replace any other events we had planned this year for those who are in a position to donate. Those who wish to can click on the donation button below which will take you to our donation page.  Receipts will be issued via email and all donations over $2 are tax deductible.
