NHSPA P & C P&C President’s 2014 Annual Report

P&C President’s 2014 Annual Report

NHSPA Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) provides an opportunity for parents to be a part of an active and engaged community whose goal is to support the students and teachers at the school.  The involvement and contribution of parents is essential to the students’ learning and enjoyment of their high school years.

The P&C’s Voluntary Fundraising Contribution, continues to raise significant funds.  These funds have enabled substantial work to be undertaken to refurbish the Studio Theatre foyer and entrances in 2013/14.  The next planned project is a refurbishment of the internal space of the historically listed St Georges Hall, which will include more effective use of the internal space for both stage and seating.  This project is another example of the positive collaboration between parents and the school, to achieve a unique space for the performing and visual arts at NHSPA.

Other highlights of this positive collaboration in 2014 include:

  • Extensive involvement and coordination by members of the P&C committee and the wider NHSPA parent community to provide Front of House refreshments at Showcase, auditions, and orientations.
  • Coordination of important events such as the new families’ welcome BBQ, and the annual World Earth Festival, a unique event for students, families and teachers to come together and celebrate NHSPA.
  • The P&C Building Sub-Committee’s completion of the Studio Theatre upgrade and refurbishment, plus the repair and replacement of old and damaged lockers for use by the student body.
  • The P&C Faculty Sub-Committee’s grant funding to all academic/sport Departments to realise effective curricular outcomes; including excursions, teaching material and equipment.
  • The P&C Performing and Visual Arts Sub-Committee (PVASC) support of the Music, Drama, Dance and Visual Arts faculties and Technical Company, including Master Class Funding by application to Drama, Music, Dance and Visual Arts Faculties.
  • The P&C Environment Sub-Committee’s planning and delivery of another successful working bee to improve, clean and brighten the physical environment of the school for the students and teachers.

The NHSPA P&C program in 2015 will continue to support the school in a myriad of ways, in particular aligning with the school’s strategic outcomes outlined in the 2015-17 School Plan. We look forward to meeting new parents and reconnecting with established P&C members, and together making an invaluable and positive contribution to NHSPA.
