P&C Executives welcome message

On behalf of the Payne Road State School P&C thank you for considering our school for your family. Payne Road State School provides the culture and approach of a small school, but has all the resources of a much larger school. Our school community is the only one in The Gap to successfully operate its own uniform shop, tuckshop, bookshop, and Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) facility. This means resources stay within the school at Payne Road State School and parents/carers can have a direct say. Most of all it means we help support our fantastic teachers and staff to create the best possible learning environment for all our students. We highly recommend Payne Road State School to you and your family.

About our P&C

The PRSS P&C plays a very active role in assisting our school in providing the best possible learning environment for our children. Please get involved and join us in supporting our school, and supporting our activities.

Payne Road State School is a small school. We are very lucky to have such great support from our families and the local community so we can continue providing the services to enhance the education of our children. Check out these two movies to show our Environment Program and Chaplaincy Program from past years.

A sign of our committed school community; in early 2017 PRSS quickly found out that the land beside the school was going to be developed into a big townhouse complex. After a large P&C meeting that turned into a community forum we moved a motion to get Town Planners involved to create a submission to make sure our school gets the best outcome from the development. A copy of the final Submission is here for you to read.

If you want more information about the P&C, check out our P&C Flyers Please also find the P&C Constitution and our P&C Strategic Plan for your perusal. In 2017 the P&C and School put together a Master Plan to give our school a vision to work towards in the future.

To provide and fund our services, the P&C actively undertakes fundraising activities throughout the year. Fundraising activities provide the necessary funds to maintain our services; but they also provide a great social benefit, and a wonderful opportunity for our families and the community to get involved, and get to know each other better.

The P&C supports:

The P&C has provided substantial financial support for the:

  • Environment Club Program
  • Chaplaincy Program
  • PRSS Tykes (Playgroup)

Keeping up to date

In support of the school we encourage our school community to keep up to date with school and P&C run events, information and activities.  We recommend you to download the QSchools & QParents App. This is a great way to keep up to date with school and student information.  There is a list below of how to keep up to date and where to find information.

P&C Meetings

PRSS P&C meetings occur every 3rd Thursday evening of the month at 7.00pm in OSHC building; and everyone is invited to attend. Membership to join the P&C is FREE; and it’s a great way of having input into your child’s education.

Becoming a member of the P&C

Membership of the P&C is a great way to help support our school. By being involved in the P&C you are kept updated regularly on activities happening around the school, school policies and procedures, and P&C news – it also means you can have active input.

Being a member of the P&C also gives you voting rights at meetings and you can participate in the decision-making process.  According to the P&C rules, memberships must be received and accepted at a prior meeting before you are able to vote.

Being a member of the P&C doesn’t mean you need to come along to every meeting or volunteer for anything that you don’t want to do.  P&C membership must be renewed each year by the start of the AGM in March. For ease, please fill in our On-Line Membership Form

We always welcome new Members to the P&C – your active involvement is essential to the success of the P&C!

If you have any questions, or wish to contact any of the P&C Committee please email us on: prsspandc@gmail.com

Clean School Award

PRSS is proud to say that we have WON the Clean School Award. We are very proud of this achievement and we work hard to keep our green and leafy school clean.

What was written about us: One of only a handful of 5-star Cleaner Greener Schools in the State, Payne Road State School have embarked on a new challenge to extend their work beyond the school, by rehabilitating Enoggera Creek. The ever growing enthusiasm of 280 students has seen more than 250 native trees and shrubs and over 100 seed pots and cuttings grown in an effort to renew bushland, support classroom projects, re-invigorate wildlife corridors near the school and improve the water quality of Enoggera Creek.
