The Merrimac Parents and Citizens (P&C) Association recognises that parents and caregivers have an important role to play in enhancing and enriching the educational and social environment that will shape the lives of our future citizens. P&C activities provide our community members with the forum to voice their opinions and exercise their rights and responsibilities for supporting staff, students and other parents as we work together to create a centre for educational excellence.
It is the aim of the P&C Association to foster communication between school and parents, and to assist both parents and staff to better understand and meet the needs of students. Parents and other interested community members are warmly welcome to become active members of the Merrimac State High School community. Increasingly, parents and citizens play an important role on various committees, and in the management and development of all of the school’s activities.
Some of the activities that Merrimac P&C Association oversee are:
- the canteen
- uniform sales
- book and equipment lending scheme
- development of the school’s physical facilities
The P&C support students competing in extracurricular activities at a State Title or higher level of competition or non-sporting events where the student may represent Merrimac State High School. If you would like further information regarding this support please contact the school or email the P&C directly.
Meetings are held at 7pm on the second Tuesday of each month in the library. All parents are encouraged to come along, become active members and have input into the efficient running of Merrimac State High School.
