The Gowrie State School P&C Association is a volunteer based committee that strives to achieve successful outcomes and initiatives that will support and grow our school community. We have a strong and dedicated executive team and committee that welcome new families and community members anytime throughout the year.

To successfully operate we depend on the support and assistance from parents, teachers, our school leaders and school council and wider community to better enhance our children’s facilities, events and school.

Ideas, suggestions, skills and feedback are welcomed along with people power.  Volunteering is a great way to meet new and friendly people within our school and the children love to see you there.

Our community

Gowrie State School P&C considers our community to be:

  • Families connected with our school
  • Teachers and staff of our school
  • Community members within the Gowrie and surrounding region

Our vision

A link between the school, the school community and wider Gowrie community to form patnerships and active outcomes.  Our vision chart for 2020 is attached to the right and outlines our goals and objectives for the year.
