P&C Association

The Parents and Citizens Association Incorporated was formed at the Wandina Primary School to support the school in obtaining funds and items that would directly benefit our students.

Our main fundraising focus for 2017 is construction of shade sails off the library, a big fan for the school hall, the design of the Community/School use Nature Playground 3 and the commencement of the whole school Amphitheatre!!

Our General Meeting is held in Week 6 of each Term. ALL ARE WELCOME. We are always on the lookout for new ideas and thoughts that would benefit our school and we also would like to hear your thoughts and we are open to constructive criticism.

Please address to Mel Scott – President.

Please join our Facebook page to receive the most up to date information about what is going on around the school.
