The P&C Association is a very active group of parents and community members who organise fund raising activities throughout the year.

Our major annual fund raising event is the Malkara Model Railway and Scale Model Exhibition held in Term 3 on the first weekend in August.

We are very lucky to have some tremendous community supporters of the Malkara Model Railway and Scale Model Exhibition.

They are:

  • Frozpak
  • Capital Chemist
  • IGA Hughes
  • Vikings Group
  • Ginger Catering
  • Canberra Southern Cross Club
  • Questacon
  • Cockington Green
  • Hellenic Club
  • National Arboretum

Over recent years, funds raised by the Malkara P&C Association have gone towards the purchase of a new, modified bus, an upgrade of the school's library and a complete makeover of the Early Education playground.

From time to time, on specific request from the principal, the P&C Association approves funding for specific pieces of equipment for use in the school. Since 2008 the P&C has funded many classroom items such as: a modified bicycle for students with a physical disability; a large bubble tube; sensory panel for the multisensory room; five quality beanbags; two Ikea egg chairs; sensory resources; specialist classroom furniture; shade cloth in the sensory garden; Lilac courtyard; iPads and customised chairs.

Attendance at the P&C meetings, held monthly in the evening, is open to every family with a child enrolled at Malkara. Dates are published in the school newsletter Malkara Matters and new members are always warmly welcomed.
