Parents and Citizens Association

Our Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) is a great way to get involved with our school and have a say. The P&C is open to all Macquarie Primary families and community members. We bring together parents, citizens, students and staff. The P&C contributes to the school and its students through events, fundraising, canteen, uniform shop, gardens and grounds, breakfast club, special projects and more.

Details about the P&C, our subcommittees, events and activities, and how to be involved are provided via the school newsletter and facebook page:

Meetings are generally held once or twice each term.

If you have ideas, want to volunteer, or would like to know more, come along to our meetings, leave a note in the P&C box near the Front Office, or email us:
