BEACONSFIELD PARENTS AND CITIZEN'S ASSOCIATION
The Beaconsfield P&C is an association that is set up to give parents an opportunity to learn and be informed about the school's educational issues and programs, which in turn allows the school to develop policies which reflect the broad agreement of the school community. The P&C is also there to organise events for raising funds and providing additional resources to benefit the whole school. The P&C has a meeting every 6 weeks which all parents are invited to attend.

Yr 5 Rm 15
I dreamed I stood in a studio
And watched two sculptors there,
The clay they used was a young child’s mind
And they fashioned it with care.
One was a teacher; the tools being used
Were books and music and art,
One, a parent with a guiding hand
And a gentle, loving heart.
Day after day the teacher toiled
With a touch that was deft and sure,
While the parent laboured just as hard
And polished and smoothed it o’er.
When at last their task was done
They were proud of what they had wrought,
For the things they had moulded into the child
Could neither be sold nor bought.
And they both agreed they would have failed
If they had worked alone,
For behind the parent stood the school
And behind the teacher, the home.
