About our P&C

The Sorrento Primary School P&C Association is a dynamic (and fun!) network of parents, carers, teachers, community members and others who are passionate about working with the school to provide additional resources for all of our kids. We are committed to the priorities and values of public education but we understand that school budgets are limited!

“Join the P&C!”

We raise around $30 000 per year through our:

  • Canteen. The Surf Shack is open Tuesdays and Thursdays (order on-line!) and also organises regular themed cake stalls and end-of-term sausage sizzles.
  • Fundraising activities & events, such as discos, movie nights, Mothers’ and Fathers’ Day stalls, Colour Run, Sorrento Under the Stars – and our 50-year anniversary celebration event is coming up in 2020!
  • Book Club. There are 2 issues per term and a great Book Fair at the end of the year.
  • School Building Fund is a special P&C fund set up to assist with ongoing school maintenance.

The P&C also:

  • Applies for local grants to fund great school projects.
  • Organises Busy Bees (e.g. School Toilet Project)
  • Organises Fathering Project events
  • Does School Banking
  • Celebrates important UN events, such as World Teachers’ Day, Harmony Day & Mud Day.

P&C funds are allocated following our Strategic Investment Plan to:

    – STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) resources, activities and equipment
    – Outdoor play areas
    – Sporting equipment
    – Furniture and renovation
    – IT programs & equipment
  • Busy Bees (10%)
