​​​​​What is the P&C?

The P&C is a not-for-profit organisation comprised of volunteers that represent the parents/caregivers of Arundel State School.

The P&C oversees the business of the Tuckshop & Uniform shop and also raises funds to provide equipment and resources not provided by Education Queensland. Our Parents and Citizens Committee strive towards attaining goals and providing financial help to the school to ensure our students have the best opportunities and experiences while they are here at Arundel. 

The P&C provides advice to the Principal on matters involving the school community, which can be communicated through our meetings.
