MacGregor State School P&C
Our Mission

What We Stand For

MacGregor State School Parents and Citizens Association is a non profit organisation run by a team of volunteers. Our objectives are to promote the interests of, and facilitate the development and further improvement of the School. For example, by promoting parent participation and encouraging collaboration between parents, students, school communities and nongovernment entities to foster a commitment to achieving the best educational outcomes for children and young people.


Essential Services that Contribute Back to the School

The P&C’s main responsibility is to oversee the management of 3 essential services to the School, namely MOSHC, Tuck Shop and the Uniform & Stationery Shop. These businesses provide essential services to students and parents whilst generating income. We also run a number of fundraising events throughout the year. Profits are subsequently contributed back to the School to fund a variety of projects and capital purchases that would otherwise not be possible through Department funding alone. The P&C therefore plays a critical role in developing and maintaining the high quality learning environment that students enjoy at MacGregor State School.
