P&C President's Report - AGM
Monday 15 February 2016
It has been a very rewarding year and I am thankful to have had the opportunity to contribute in the role of President. It has been a privilegeto volunteer alongside parents/carers, P&C staff, school staff and membersof our community whose interest it is to provide the best possible learning environment for our children.
In keeping with tradition we have achieved great successes in the last twelve months, some of these are:
Through the efforts of dedicated parent/carers, school staff and supportive localbusiness the P&C ran a number of very successful events. These have included: Mother’s Day and Father’sDay stalls, School Discos, World Teacher’s Day celebration, a bush dance, the car boot sale, BBQs and the Twilight Fair.
We worked on building our partnership with the School Board.This was achieved through proactive parent School Board representatives and effective exchange of information; through oral reports and meetings. I look forward to seeing this partnership continueto strengthen.
We have continued to provide school banking and book club to all students. In the year past we have seen the continuation of the second hand uniform shop.
We provided financial support through a large donation to the school for a number of initiatives. I am very proud of the accomplishment of the P&C in 2015. However, the P&C is most effective when working in close partnership with the school staff. I wish to acknowledge the excellent leadership of the Principal, Mrs Travers and the tremendous support provided by Kate Flynn the ActingDeputy Principal, as well as the exceptional support to the P&C association provided by both the executive staff, the teachers and administration staff.
Finally, I wish to thank the P&C executive, our regular meeting attendees and our enthusiastic army of parent volunteers for their time and support this past year. Being part of the P&C Association is a most rewarding undertaking and I’m sure members will continue to display a wonderful ‘community spirit’ in their support of our school.
Thank you and I wish the P&C continued success.

Palmerston actively seeks ways to enhance student learning and wellbeing. We do this by partnering with parents and families, other education and training institutions, local businesses and community organisations. Partnerships are strategically established to address identified student needs and operate by providing access to experience, support and intellectual and /or physical resources not available within the school. Palmerston has deliberately and strategically used partnerships to provide additional resources to the school. We have approached this by working with:
Palmerston staff have been driving a strong improvement agenda. We ground this in evidence and practice. Our school is driven by a deep belief that every student is capable of successful learning. We work with many others, but have mentioned only a few community partnerships. The school has set targets in our annual operating plan and school plan for student achievement. We have met with community on our school vision and will continue with this over the school year. With you as our partners, and at times we may have ups and downs, we are working towards maintaining a learning environment that is safe, respectful, tolerant, and inclusive and that promotes intellectual rigour. We are using the National School Improvement Tool to assist us on this journey. Thanks for supporting us and continuing to keep clear lines of communication open in this partnership.
