             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:
  • operating the school Tuckshop and Uniform Shop;
  • supporting the various sub-committees; 
  • assist with fundraising.

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.
