P&C

Welcome to Bowen State High School!

Your P&C representatives are made up of a group of dedicated volunteers and parents, from a broad cross-section of careers. Our mission is to deliver assistance to our student body by way of providing much-needed resources or financial assistance, and providing our kids with opportunities they might not otherwise have the chance to experience.

During 2017, the P&C provided in excess of $20 000 worth of assistance to Bowen State High School. This assistance provided technological upgrades, classroom facilities, financial assistance for major excursions and sporting events, and healthy breakfasts for students during exam blocks and Naplan testing.

P&C meetings are held on the third Monday of each month (except during school holidays) in the school library, and commence at 6:00pm. We try our best to keep the length of our meetings to about an hour. These meetings are a great opportunity for parents and teachers to discuss what has been happening in our school, and to talk about upcoming events. We invite you to come along, even if it’s just once, and see how we work. We are a friendly bunch, and we love seeing new faces!

Our school tuckshop – the “Snack Shack” - is the P&C’s main source of income. It is ably run by paid staff and volunteers that supply an amazing range of healthy lunch options. In 2017, our tuckshop was recognised by the Queensland Association of School Tuckshops as having one of the Top 10 menus in the state for Secondary Schools.

Our tuckshop uses the “Flexischool” system, which allows parents to order their child’s lunch online from home. Kids can also order themselves at the tuckshop before school using their ID Card, which can be topped up with funds. We strongly encourage pre-orders, as it cuts down waiting times for all students at break times.

We look forward to meeting you!
