Welcome to Forest Lodge Public School and to your P&C

P&Cs: The Benefits

P&C activities create opportunities for parents and carers, students and staff to interact,
building a feeling of respect and a stronger, safer, school community. Schools also benefit
from the support of their P&Cs in providing school services and events, communicating with
parents and fundraising for resources.

Being involved also benefits parents and their families. Research shows that when
parents are involved, their children get better grades, have a better attitude to school and
improved behaviour.

Being involved in the P&C can have several advantages for You:

* meeting other parents in the community which leads to a feeling of belonging and
enhanced wellbeing

* getting to know teachers and Principal better, making it easier to approach them with any questions

* understanding more about what happens at school so that you can assist your child more effectively

* having a chance to voice your opinion about school matters

* acquiring new skills (for example, business, management and financial skills, experience running meetings, event planning)

* demonstrating a positive attitude to schooling to your child which has a great influence on their attitude and achievement

* the satisfaction of contributing directly to your child’s education by helping provide additional resources for their school.

We look forward to seeing you at your next P&C meeting. Click here for dates.
