P and C

​​The parent committee is the voice of the parents. It’s at these meetings that decisions affecting your child at school are made.

Committee meetings are usually held once a month. Any parent or guardian can attend.

Parent associations are a great way to:

  • get the inside story on what’s really happening in the school (not the gossip). The principal usually is available to answer questions and teachers sometimes attend too
  • influence school policy (want to change the uniform? Lobby through the P&C)
  • have a say in the development of school activities such as excursions and camps and curriculum
  • guide school management in its financial planning by helping prioritise the resource wish-list
  • contribute to the school’s resources through various fundraising projects
  • meet other parents

Current Highfields State Secondary College board members for the P&C are:
​President Peter Swinney
​Vice Presidents Eva Swinney
Secretary Kym Murphy
​Treasurer ​Bruce Swinford
