P&C

Our Dalkeith primary School P&C is critical to the heart, soul and wellbeing of our school community.
The objectives of the Dalkeith Primary School P&C are to promote the interests of the school through:
1. Cooperation between parents, teachers, students and members of the general community;
2. Assisting in the provision of resources, facilities and amenities for the school or schools; and
3. The fostering of community interest in educational matters.

The P&C brings parents together to share information and views; assist the school in building positive attitudes to students and their families; and help raise funds to provide extra resources.

We invite and encourage all parents to become involved in any way they can.

The P&C provides an excellent opportunity to meet other parents and children within the school and ensure that each family feel part of the community of Dalkeith Primary School.
