The P&C Grants programme is run in collaboration with school leadership and staff as well as community groups to identify and apply for funds to finance initiatives that will help our school and community thrive and prosper.
Do you work for an organisation that provides employee grant opportunities? You might not know it but a simple search or query of your company might unearth a grant just waiting for your application on behalf of CHS P&C.
Please contact us if you become aware of any grants that might help the school or if you wish to assist in this area.
P&C Representative on Staff Merit Selection Panels
Another important way to be involved is to sit as a P&C representative on a Merit Selection Panel for new staff. Please contact us if you would be interested in receiving more information and/or if you are currently trained and/or have sat on Panels before. Training will be provided.
