P&C

Hello YSHS School Community!

Welcome to the 2017 school year! The beginning of each school year brings new students and families to our school and I would like to extend a big hello and welcome to all of our families – established and new.

The role of the P & C is to provide a voice for the students and families of the school and to support the students, teachers and staff of the school.  Last year saw a change in the Executive and quite a steep learning curve for some of us.  We established a relationship with the school’s new Principal- Mrs Ruth Miller and have re-invigorated some events such as the Junior School Social, which was a great success.  Last year was also the first for the Year 12 Formal being held at the school – another great success and showed what we can achieve when the whole school community works together.

The Student Resource Scheme was another project that we worked closely with the school on and have established a flat fee for all years and new textbooks – another great achievement for both the school and the P & C.

As the new school year commences, this also re-invigorates the P & C.  The first meeting for the year will be held at 7.00pm on Tuesday the 14th February, 2017 in the staffroom at the school’s Administration building.  All are welcome to attend. If you haven’t been to a P & C meeting and aren’t sure about what happens – come along and introduce yourself and see what happens from there.  The more we have involved in the P & C the greater our voice and the more opportunities we have to help our students and the school. P & C meetings are generally on the second Tuesday of the month at 7pm.

The P & C AGM is held in March each year and this will be our second meeting of the year. Again, all are welcome to come along and get involved.  The stronger our membership the stronger our voice and ability to support the students and school.

I’ll leave it there for now but with a parting word I look forward to another great year working with our membership, the school and the YSHS school community as a whole.

Cheers
