Board and P&C

Parents and Citizens

The Parent and Citizen (P&C) association at Melba Copland can make a difference to how your child is educated and help them enjoy their time at school, resulting in better performance in and out of the class room.

Our school P&C association is a member of the ACT Council of P&C Associations and through the Council, school parents can have a say in everything from traffic safety problems at your school, bullying, enrolment issues, school transport, testing procedures, improved curricula, school funding, teacher performance, student support services, libraries & information technology, student counselling and well being to mention just a few topics.

But your P&C can only function effectively if you (the parents) actively participate by attending your P&C meetings and support their activities.

Research has shown that students whose parents are involved in their school (via their P&Cs), perform better academically and socially.

You are eligible to be a member of your school P&C association, so please consider attending our next P&C meeting and get involved in your child's education both at home and in the school.
