As a parent or carer, you are an important part of our school community. We offer a range of services to support you and your family.
Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C)
It really is an exciting time to be a part of Coomealla High School. In my short, 2-year association with this school, I have seen the impact of hard work, accountability and restructuring driven so passionately by Steve Harper and his extremely hard-working staff. There are many impactful initiatives currently in place and ambitious goals set to create the best possible teaching and learning environment for all students and staff. Currently, we have 20 enthusiastic members on the P&C team!
Through consistency and fairness, huge improvements have been made with uniform conformity, which naturally lifts and promotes pride in our school. This will remain a focus moving forward. Improving the aesthetic appearance of the school has taken on a renewed focus over the last few years and I would like to congratulate Ted O’Shannesy, Rob Fraser and helpers for the significant work that has been undertaken. Excitingly, the agricultural component of the school is coming along in ‘leaps and bounds’ and I’m sure it won’t be long before we are the envy of all schools in the Sunraysia region.
The P&C’s major fundraiser is the school canteen. Anna Hansen does a wonderful job providing healthy food and drink options for students and staff each day, as well as catering for school events and special activities. Thank you Anna!
Being involved in P&C is such a rewarding experience. If you are interested in being a part of a passionate and enthusiastic crew that is genuinely interested in helping shape the direction of the school, please consider joining - new members are always welcome.
