The Parents and Citizens Association (P&C)
The active participation of parents and guardians in the P&C is welcomed and encouraged. The P&C promotes the best interests of the school, and assists with the provision of resources, facilities and amenities for students. It helps the school make decisions about resources; provides for involvement in the School Council; offers a community perspective on education issues; makes decisions regarding school facilities managed by the P&C (for example, the Canteen); plans fundraising activities and discusses how funds will be spent; and allows a forum to meet other parents and share views. Meetings are usually held twice per term.
The P&C Association operates a School Canteen three days per week to provide healthy lunches and refreshments for students. View the link to the Canteen Winter Menu 2018. Prices are set largely to cover costs. The canteen operates on the Department of Education “Traffic Light” Policy and all menu items are rated for health and nutrition value and is run on a not-for-profit basis to provide healthy and inexpensive lunch options for students. Parent helpers make the job of the canteen easier, and help to minimise the costs associated with running the canteen. If you are available for a few hours and are prepared to commit to assisting in the canteen, you will find a pleasant environment where you can make a genuine contribution to the school. Please contact the school or the P&C for details, or contact the canteen direct on 9575 5316.
The P&C Association operates the Gingin District High School Uniform Shop each Friday morning from 8.30am to 9.30am only. The Uniform Shop can be located within the School Administration building. View the link to the Uniform Order Form.
If you are unable to visit the Uniform Shop during open times, you can send your order form and money in an envelope with your child to the office where it will then be processed and available for pickup from the Office at recess or lunch.
