Coonabarabran Public School P & C Association's main function is to liaise concerns and issues raised by P&C with all stakeholders within the Coonabarabran Public School and local community.

We meet every 4th Monday of the month at 6.30pm in the Public School Library.

Our Committee consists of five executive positions; President, two Vice Presidents, Secretary and Treasurer. We are continually seeking new members each year to strengthen our association so to ensure that decisions and ideas are supported.

 At the beginning of each school year, fundraising events and ideas are tabled for discussion. Our association plays a very important roll within our school community.

 Our Fundraising events include

  • BBQ's at Infants Athletics Carnival
  • Operating a canteen at Primary Athletic & Zone Carnivals
  • Easter Raffles

The P & C also assists in providing morning tea for Grandparents day and supper for Performing Arts Night.

The P & C provided funding for the text books that were required for the Best Start Literacy adn Numeracy Programs, plus an additional A-Frame whiteboard. Other funding assistance is given for the Intensive swimming programme, Graduation Bears and we sponsor the DUX trophie for the Annual Awards Night.

We are always looking for new ideas and suggestions for fundraising and ways that we can work together to provide materials and equipment that would be beneficial to our school community.
