P&C Committee and Constitution Review - Special Resolution
We are proposing a new constitution be adopted for our P&C. A Special Resolution, "for the Neville Bonner Primary School P&C Association to adopt a whole new constitution to align with current best practice" is proposed. In order to adopt a new constitution, the Special Resolution must be passed at a Special General Meeting.
This meeting will be held, within the Committee Meeting, from 7.00pm on Monday 20th June 2022 in the staff lounge. To obtain a copy of the proposed constitution for review, please email email@example.com.
All school families are welcome to attend.
