Mooloolaba State School P&C was named State P&C of the Year.

P&Cs Qld President Gayle Walters says the 2017 Awards attracted an increasing number of high-quality nominations, but some P&Cs were reluctant to “blow their own trumpets”.

“P&Cs work tirelessly to enhance the outcomes for students in state schools. Our 2017-member survey showed that 84% of P&Cs donated up to $60,000 annually to their school and 49% of P&C executive committees contributed more than 10 volunteer hours per week.”

“P&Cs across the state deserve to be recognized for this extremely valuable and important contribution,”
Representatives from the winning P&Cs were welcomed at the P&Cs Qld State Conference dinner at the Sofitel Hotel Brisbane, where the awards were presented in front of more than 350 conference delegates and guests.
