My name is Daryl Perry and I’ve been President of our P&C Association since 2013. Our son is in one of the school’s face to face classes and I became involved in the P&C so I could put something back into this wonderful school that gives so much to our child.
The P&C operates two buses that are used for transport to and from school and for school excursions. The income from the buses is used to fund therapists, equipment and other activities not otherwise funded by the Govt.
Being a parent or carer of a child with special needs isn’t easy and I know first-hand how little time there is to get involved in the P&C and that’s why our P&C works differently to what you may be used to at other schools. Our P&C is more of an information sharing resource; we don’t do any fundraising as we have another committee called the Branding Committee who do that. Anyone interested in becoming part of our P&C Association please contact me via the school. If you see me at the school please come and say G’day, I love to get to know our parents and carers.
I believe everyone has something they can offer their fellow parents and carers, and no matter how large or small that contribution is, the end result is a better school for our children and who doesn’t want that?
