P&Cs in Queensland are governed by the Department of Education. As such, the governance of the Yeronga State School P&C Association is based on two essential Department of Education overarching P&C documents – the Model P&C Constitution and the P&C Accounting Manual. These guide us through the legislative requirements for state school P&Cs in Queensland.
P&Cs Queensland has also produced the P&C Guide – an easy-to-read summary of important information for P&Cs.
P&C executives must also be familiar with the Student Protection Risk Management Strategy, and review and adopt it each year at the AGM.
Yeronga State School P&C Constitution
The Model Constitution is the governing document for state school P&Cs in Queensland. It is produced by the Department of Education and must be followed.
As per Department of Education requirements, the Yeronga State School P&C Association has created a ‘personalised’ constitution for our school.
All members of the P&C Executive should be familiar with the Yeronga State School P&C Association Constitution (2018).
P&C Accounting Manual
The P&C Accounting Manual contains vital information regarding the financial operations of the P&C. This document is essential reading for all P&C treasurers and recommended for other P&C executive officers.
The P&C Guide is an invaluable resource for the Yeronga State School P&C Association, as it provides essential information to support our volunteer executive committee team to effectively manage our Association.
The Guide describes the roles of P&C members and officers, the legal framework that a P&C operates within and the activities a P&C can undertake. It also provides advice on keeping records, running meetings and ensuring that the P&C operates in a way that is professional, friendly and supportive. The Guide is intended to provide general information for P&Cs. More detail is included in the Constitution and the Accounting Manual.
Student Protection Risk Management Strategy
The Student Protection Risk Management Strategy identifies the role and obligations of volunteers and P&C employees while conducting business within a school. The document is based on a number of policies and legislation as outlined in the Strategy and should not be altered. It should be reviewed annually and endorsed at our P&C AGM.
