About Us

Who we are

The Latham Primary School Parents and Citizen Association (P&C) is a volunteer-run organisation that is here to support the school and community.

All Latham Primary School parents and carers are automatically members of the P&C, so welcome! 

What we do

We are focussed on supporting our children, our families, the school and the greater community through:

  • providing low cost uniforms through our Uniform Shop
  • offering cost effective healthy food choices provided by our Latham Lunchbox Canteen
  • hosting  free nutritious breakfasts for students at the Breakfast Club
  • giving children the opportunity to thank their parents and significant others with their chosen gifts on Mother’s and Father’s Day
  • providing assistance to families who need it through helping out with uniforms and school lunches
  • organising fun events for children and/or families like discos, movie nights and school fetes
  • fundraising to enhance students’ learning experiences
  • sponsoring the Community Hub and school P&C website

The Committee is here to listen to our families and can facilitate discussions between parents and the school regarding any issues or concerns and where possible, we can provide assistance to our families who need it.  

    All money raised is always delivered back to the children in the form of resources, activities or experiences.
