         Always Worthy

             Cleveland District State High School   
Parents & Citizens Association
 
The Cleveland District State High School Parents and Citizens (P&C) Association encourages closer co-operation between the school, parents and the wider community. P&C Association members work with the Executive Principal and school staff on behalf of the students’ families to foster an interest amongst the parents in educational matters as well as fundraising to provide financial resources for the school.  Core functions of the P&C Association are:
  • operating the school Tuckshop and Uniform Shop;
  • supporting the various sub-committees; 
  • assist with fundraising.

Sub-Committees
 
The P&C Association presently operates two sub-committees associated with cultural and agricultural science extra-curricular activities. They report to the P&C Association and consist of parents and teachers who are involved in the organisation and fundraising for those activities.
 
All parents are encouraged to attend sub-committee meetings relevant to the activities in which their child participates. Not only do parents get to meet the teachers involved, but they also find out what is happening first-hand.
POST – Parents of Show Team
Parents of Show Team is for parents who wish to be involved in assisting with fundraising and running of the sheep show team.
 
All parents of show team members are welcome and encouraged to attend the meetings, held at the school farm. For more information on POST, please contact post@clevelanddistrictshs.eq.edu.au
 
 
Creative Arts Support Group

The Creative Arts Support Group provides support for all of the creative arts disciplines including: Music, Drama, Dance, Media and Visual Art. 
 
We encourage parents from Dance, Drama, Art and Media to be welcomed and actively involved in this group.
 
Funds raised through the Creative Arts Support Group will purchase resources that will benefit the whole of creative arts.

This support group does not have a formal committee structure, rather it is led by the Head of Department – Creative Arts and the teachers of the various arts disciplines.

The group meets monthly and works towards supporting events such as:
1. Creative Arts Showcase
2. Dance Fusion
3. Music Showcase
4. Drama productions
Expanding our network enables a shared workload, increased man power at all events, targeted financial assistance towards all creative arts areas and overall a positive step forward in supporting all the incredible creative arts programs at Cleveland DSHS.

Our P&C has a very proud history of supporting CDSHS and its students.  In the last 5 years, the P&C has contributed to and supported the following initiatives:
 
  • Multi-purpose Hall project our P&C was instrumental in publicising the long overdue need for a modern and spacious multi-purpose hall through its sponsored E-Petition to the State Government and lobbying various State Government Departments for support;
  • Improved resources and infrastructure across CDSHS service areas, such as the provision of funding for air conditioning and solar panels for electricity production; and
  • Funding for capital improvement projects, such as the recent Library extension; and
  • Support of students representing CDSHS by providing financial assistance for sporting, academic or cultural activities; and chaplaincy Support Services.
