Parents, carers and the community

As a parent or carer, you are an important part of our school community. We offer a range of services to support you and your family.

Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C)

Our Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C) is made up of parents and carers, teachers and community members. The P&C meets regularly to contribute to decision-making, developing policies and management plans as well as fundraising.

We extend a warm welcome to all new parents.

The Byron Bay High School P&C Association meets on the third Tuesday of each month (except during the school holidays) in the Library at 7 pm. The Association is encouraged to participate in the decision-making processes relating to all aspects of the school.

The P&C Association has a dual purpose:

  • To work co-operatively with the school in providing a good educational program for the students.
  • To allow all parents and citizens to share their views and ideas concerning matters affecting the students and their school.

The P&C Association raises money to supplement the resources in the school and provides a link between parents and the school. Addresses on topics of special interest are often given by teaching staff members or special guests.

Successful education of students in the 21st Century demands a partnership between parents, students and teachers - the school invites all parents to participate.
