Forster Public School Parents and Citizens Association – Working together

What is a P&C?

The Forster Public School Parents & Citizens Association (P&C) is a not for profit organisation, made up of Parents, Carers and Community Members with an interest in the school. The P&C works in collaboration with the school to help fundraise and support initiatives to create a happy and healthy learning environment.

P&C are recognised by an Act of Parliament as the representative voice for parents with children in public schools. They are supported by the The Federation of Parents & Citizens of New South Wales and nationally by the Australian Council of State School Organisations.

To learn more about how our P&C operates, please read our Constitution and By-Laws.
