HPSS wins State P&C of the Year Award!


On 12th September 2015 P&C's QLD held their inaugural Awards evening at the Brisbane Sofitel.  At this event, Holland Park State School's P&C Association was awarded the Metropolitan South P&C of the Year, as well as the State P&C of the Year.

HPSS Principal Tony Gribbin said, “The citation that was read out confirmed what I have long thought. The P&C here over the last couple of years has driven a renewal process that has seen a consolidation and enhancement of the services it offers our (school) community. The membership of the group has doubled; meetings keep to time and have a clear purpose and focus. I have particularly valued the level of consultation with me and my administration team that has led to a very productive partnership delivering better outcomes for our students.”

The P&C has prided itself on leading high quality and well supported networking and fundraising events, attracting sponsorship and enhancing community relations along the way. P&C profits in 2014 exceeded $78k and contributions to the school included support of the music program, new amenities and upgrades, sporting equipment and learning resources. It drives healthy eating options via a tuckshop volunteer “Home Bake” service and maintains a thriving Swim School and Club with a high number of members from outside the school, several participating at State level.

An ongoing objective of the P&C is to consistently spread the strong message of the value of parent participation in the school life of their children. The success of this objective has been proven in the strong support of ongoing initiatives such as a bi-annual fete; the publication of a school Cook Book; and with the support of local council, the implementation of efficient Student Drop off & Pick Up Zones, to name a few.

Future plans include the revitalization of the school’s outdoor amphitheatre, building of new pool grandstands, and the construction of basketball courts.

The next P&C Event is the HPSS Market Night, which is being held on Thursday 15th October in the school hall. For more information on Holland Park State School and its P&C Association please visit:
