Parents and citizens' association

Leichhardt Public School enjoys a strong and active parents and citizens’ association (P&C). The P&C successfully supports and enriches the quality of education of our students through a number of activities.

Our parents & citizens’ association (P&C) brings the school community together. Parents, teachers and community members can help meet the needs of the school community and contribute to decisions about the school.

All parents, carers and friends of Leichhardt Public School are welcome to join the P&C and attend meetings. Membership of the P&C, required if you wish to vote on P&C motions, is by gold coin donation.


P&C meetings are scheduled to be held on different days of the week using a rotating timetable. Updates regarding meeting dates will be sent home on a regular basis. Meetings will be held at 7 pm in the school library.

The P&C successfully supports and enriches the quality education of our students through:

  • the provision of significant funding for additional teaching resources
