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.
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.
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, ceiling hoists.
Attendance at the P&C meetings, held regularly 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.
