Narara Valley High School P and C exists to support the welfare of the Narara community. It consists of parents/care givers and staff who meet regularly and work together in a variety of ways to assist the school in its endeavours thorough a formalised structure.
The school exists to teach our children much of what they need to know to live a great life and our common goal is to assist the school in that endeavour. School teachers are not the only people who have an important role to play in this education process. Studies have shown that close involvement of parents/carers in their children’s education leads to improved personal development.
Through a variety of committees, we combine our expertise and our energies to enhance the educational experience of the children. In addition, we have a lot of fun along the way and develop valuable personal relationships. This is particularly valuable in the diverse population that comprises the Narara community.
Come and join us; you can do a lot or a little, whatever you can, and your opinions are valued.
This website provides further details about the structure and operations of the Narara and how you can be involved. If you cannot find what you are looking for in the website, please contact us.
What is a Parents and Citizens Association or “P&C”? The NVHS P and C is open to parents/caregivers, teachers, students and other interested people. It is formed under a NSW Government Act and has a formal constitution to control its operation. Its operations are overseen by a series of committees, comprised primarily of parents/ caregivers. Our main aims is to improve the school experience for every child (beyond what the Department of Education and Community (DEC) provides) in a non-political, non-discriminatory manner. To achieve this it is necessary to give support to the school staff and to develop and maintain a strong Narara community (comprising parents/caregivers, other members of the local area, local businesses and community groups).
What we do In accordance with the NSW legislation, our main objectives are to:
What we don't do
- Promote the interest of the school by bringing parents, citizens, students and teaching staff into close cooperation.
- Assist in providing facilities and equipment for the school and promoting the recreation and welfare of the students at the school.
- Encourage parent and community participation in curriculum and other education issues in the school.
How to join:
- We do not exercise authority over teaching staff.
- We do not interfere with control or management of the School.
- We do not dictate educational policy for the School.
The membership fee is a nominal $2 per year. This entitles the member to voting rights for decisions in general meetings. Copies of the meeting agenda, minutes and reports are sent to current members. Community members may receive these by request. Attending a meeting is the simplest way to join. The treasurer will collect your fee and take your details.
When we meet:
We meet on the fourth Monday of the month during school terms at 7pm in the Barn. The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is held prior to the March general meeting.
Our structure each year at the Annual General Meeting, general members elect an Executive made up of Officer Bearers. This committee has the purpose of overseeing all of the Association’s day-to-day operation. The Office Bearers are given authority to do such things as appropriate to ensure the proper conduct of the Association’s business. Major new spending decisions (typically donations to the school) or matters outside the delegated responsibility of the Office Bearers are decided at General Meetings by majority vote.
The Executive and Office Bearers report on their activities at our regular meetings
