As a parent or carer, you are an important part of our school community. We offer a range of services to support you and your family.
Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C)
Our Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C) is made up of parents and carers, teachers and community members. The P&C meets regularly to contribute to decision-making, developing policies and management plans as well as fundraising.
P&C - Camden High School
Executive Committee Members for 2022
Our Parents & Citizens' Association (P&C) brings the school community together. Presentations from the executive staff and other staff members inform parents about programs at the school and other school news. It is an opportunity to be involved and contribute to decisions about the school, including uniform changes. The P&C has also been involved in raising funds that help finance improvements to our school and provide additional resources.
Meetings are usually held in week 4 and week 9 of each term (except Term 4 - only Week 4). The first meeting of the year includes the Annual General Meeting.
All parents are welcome to attend these meetings and are invited to join the P&C for a small annual fee. This entitles the member to vote and to be on the executive of the P&C. However, parents can attend meetings whether they are a member or not, or they can become a member at any time during the year.
P&C meetings commence at 6:30 pm in the school admin office. All welcome.

Interpreting and translations
We will help you communicate with our school. If you’d like an interpreter for a school meeting, let us know and we will arrange one, if available.
If you don’t speak or understand English well and want to contact us, call TIS National on 131 450 and ask for an interpreter in your language. The operator will call the school and get an interpreter to help. This service is free.
