P&C

 
Dear Urangan State High School (USHS) Community
 
On behalf of the USHS Parent and Citizens/Community (P&C) Association, we would like to extend a very warm "Urangan" welcome.
 
Participation in the P&C (Parent and Citizens/Community Association) provides the opportunity to have direct involvement, share your positive ideas and a voice in school decision making. Having input into the success and progress of the school is rewarding and benefits your child. For a child, knowing that their parent/carer and school community are involved in their education/learning and development of their schools helps them to feel valued and supported. Together as partners, the school and P&C work collaboratively; providing a successful education. This is the result of a team effort involving the school community, staff, parents/carers and students. The Urangan State High School P&C encourages you to participate in your child's education.
