QHS Parents & Citizens

Quirindi High School (QHS) has an active volunteer parents and citizens (P&C) community which supports the staff and students of QHS in a number of ways including:

Promoting close cooperation between parents, community members, the Principal, teachers, staff and students.

  • It is an opportunity to contribute to the School's resources through various fundraising projects and be involved in deciding how the money raised is spent.
  •  Running the school canteen during sporting events.
  • Assisting in upgrading and maintaining the school buildings and grounds.
  • Providing a forum to give feedback on our school.

All families and carers at Quirindi High School are welcomed and encouraged to participate in the P&C Association meetings and wider activities. Many parents cannot make it to all meetings but attend those that they can. Parents also help at activities with supplying fresh home baked cooking or just helping out on the day.  All these things are required to make a happy and successful QHS P and C.


The QHS P&C is only effective if we have enthusiastic members. It provides an excellent opportunity and forum to learn about what is happening at Quirindi High School and for you to understand more about your children's school and their experiences within the school. You don't need to hold a position or have any special talents or skills. Just come along to a meeting and give it a go! All you need is a smile and an interest in your child's education.

Within the QHS P&C there is an Executive Committee. These positions are voted in by parents at the P&C Annual General Meeting. Most office bearers require additional support of the parent community so look out for opportunities to participate.

There are many areas to get involved including:


  • Having fun and helping on sporting days

Help with catering for events, such as school musical

We welcome you to our community and encourage you to get involved!
