What does the P&C do? 
The P&C is about people – people just like you – parents, care givers and community minded people who want to help their school. You work very closely with your school, building a stronger school community, where all children benefit. We also have adopted an emphasis to build a strong Wonga Beach community.
 The school has lovely grounds and amazing resources which we would love to share with the community of Wonga.
Some current community projects
Starting a Playgroup on Friday morning 9-11am for babies and “pre-school aged” children and their parents or carers to attend - please contact school or P&C and show your interest.
Aluminium Can Collection and recycling: Can collection cages are currently in operation at the northern end of the school carpark in the lattice area and at the Wonga Beach Caravan Park (please advise office).
