Who we are, how we work together & when/where we meet

The P&C is a volunteer member based organisation.

We work together for the benefit of the THS community.

To support the running of the P&C there are number of positions held by fellow members; president, vice-president(s), secretary, treasurer, sub-committee coordinators.

The school Principal is ex officio member and can vote like any other member, more about their role...

These positions/roles hold no special powers, they are just there to ensure the P&C organisation, members and volunteers have the structures they need to work well.

More about what's involved with a position...

The P&C employees a General Manager (Simon De Rosa; pandcgeneralmanager@ths.community) to manage the community owned trading businesses (Canteen, Uniform Shop), assist with environment projects and authentic learning support.

We meet on a Wednesday twice a school term.

First meeting of the year is in February.

We hold the AGM in November.

At each meeting we run an information session by a teacher, student or parent about something innovative.

You don't have to be a member, just come along.

We start at 7:30PM and are always done by 9PM.

Except the first meeting of the year when we have "Welcome drinks and dibbles" so start at 7PM!

Annual General Meeting (AGM)

Our Annual General Meeting is held in November each year as per our constitution and by-laws - it is held in conjunction with a General Meeting.

At the start of the AGM meeting all positions are made vacant and people can nominate other people for a positions of office-holder on the general committee or sub-committee.

To be an office-holder you need to be a financial member - you can join online.

We have done considerable work on our organisational structure with the use of professional support to ensure the office-holders positions are manageable as an occasional volunteer. Most of the office-holder positions are considered to be over-sight (ie policy setting) only.

At the AGM the social events team kindly provider drinks & nibbles and we review the year just gone.

If you require more information or would like to chat about a position please contact pandcpresident@ths.community!
