Welcome to Brisbane State High’s P&C!
To our new and existing families, welcome to our school community! The Brisbane State High School P&C, run by volunteers, exists to engage parents and citizens in ways that build and sustain purposeful relationships with the school in order to foster improving education and developmental outcomes of students. We hope that you will find information on this website useful to support you and your child/children’s journey through secondary school and to maximise the experience. Please call on 07 3291 4173 or email on firstname.lastname@example.org if we can assist further.
Supporting our students to reach their full potential through actively engaging parents, school and community
The P&C is a volunteer membership based organisation, open to all parents and guardians with children currently enrolled at the school, as well as to citizens who have an interest in the educational outcomes of students.
Becoming a member is easy! Simply complete our P&C Membership Form and drop it into our P&C Office (located next to the I Block Canteen), bring it along to a P&C meeting or email it to email@example.com. Becoming a member is how you can have a say on P&C activities and priorities, with only members able to vote on motions.
The P&C meets at 7:00pm on the fourth Monday of each month (except during school holidays/public holidays) in the PAC Foyer, on the Merivale Street Campus. Parking is available via Gate M4 on Merivale Street (refer to map).
All members of the school community are welcome to attend!
Members only are permitted to vote.

Our dedicated volunteer Executive Committee employ a range of staff to assist providing services to the school community.
At the yearly Annual General Meeting members propose and vote on the composition of the P&C Executive Committee.
The role of the committee is to serve its members and govern all aspects of P&C operations. Executive decision-making authority is established by the P&C’s Constitution and regulatory framework noted above. These require all decisions to be approved by members through motions voted on at General or Annual General Meetings. When a member is elected to the Executive Committee, they fill a role that stipulates the bounds afforded to that role by members.
