Meetings & Committee

The Willoughby Girls High School parents and citizens' association (P&C) meet twice per term. All parents are welcome. We regularly host informative speakers and events at meetings that are publicised via the school newsletter and parents' Facebook page. You can enter the school via the door at the front of the main building and come up the stairs.

2021 meeting dates

  • Term 1:  16 February, 16 March
  • Term 2: 18 May, 15 June
  • Term 3: 20 July, 17 August
  • Term 4: 19 October, 16 November (AGM)

The Willoughby Girls High School P&C provides parents with the opportunity to meet regularly with the school principal and deputy principals and hear what is happening in the school. These meetings provide an informal forum to raise and discuss relevant educational and welfare issues and areas that require additional funding around the school. Over the next year there will be much discussion concerning the new build, its inclusions and the school’s entitlements.

For news about P&C meetings and sports/music sub-committees, please go to Willoughby girls high school facebook page and follow our page. This page is managed and administered exclusively by the P&C Executive and sub-committees with permission from the school. The netball club has a separate Facebook page which is administered by the sub-committee.

Voluntary donations to P&C funds

For 2021 the amounts have been set at $160 (general fund) and $160 (tax-deductible building fund). 

Donations to the P&C general and building funds are used to provide facilities, equipment, resources and technology to enhance the girls’ learning experiences. We also have a hard working grants committee that help to connect with the wider community and supplement funding. The tax deductable P&C building fund contributes to any permanent fixtures, fittings or building works that the Department of Education does not have a priority for (non-essentials) or does not fund.   

In recent years funds have been used to provide the waterproof shade structure over the amphitheatre, a new shade structure near the library, new and upgrade existing fixed technology including classroom interactive white boards and data projectors, installation of a new large screen for the hall, full renovations of the uniform shop and hall kitchen and new Dyson hand dryers for the girls’ toilets. The school hall (interior and exterior) was also fully renovated.  In 2020 new industrial fans for the hall were installed and a shade structure for the new basketball courts was approved.

In addition, air conditioning in the library and new computers for classrooms were also funded by the P&C. P&C funds provide for ongoing upgrading of classrooms, technology and other facilities for students.

Parents & citizens' clubs

Willoughby Girls High School parents manage the music ensembles program as well as a range of sporting clubs.
