Marie Bashir Public School P&C Association

Welcome to our P & C

Hello parents & carers! The Marie Bashir Public School Parents & Citizens Association welcomes you to our school. P&C’s make the difference between a good school and a great school!

The primary objective of the P&C is to bring the wider community closer together. This includes school staff, students and parents / caregivers. The P&C runs multiple activities throughout the year to help us achieve this aim.

A secondary objective of the P&C is to raise much needed funds for the school. 

Here’s a list of all the resources the P&C donated to the school this year:

  • An Art Teacher for 3 days per week – $60,000
  • Kiln for Art Program – $18,000
  • Literacy & Numeracy resources – $17,000
  • Learning Support Teacher – $20,000
  • Laptops for STEAM – $14,000
  • Air-conditioners – $4,700
  • Musical instruments for orchestra – $9,000
  • P&C Community BBQ – $500

So, Who’s the P&C Anyway?

Well, it’s you! The parents and carers! The P&C is just a bunch of parents, grandparents, and carers who come together to help organise events, fundraisers and volunteer at P&C projects.

We are also an incorporated organisation and registered as a charity with ACNC.

The current P & C committee includes:
President: Yen Yee
Vice Presidents: Fan Wu & An Duong
Secretary: Isabel Galea
Treasurer: Karen Wang
Executive Members: Sam Mufti, Anne Lieu, PJ Sullivan & John Krebs
