Welcome to the Narrabundah College P&C Association.
To support the needs of parents, carers and families of students at Narrabundah College and advocate for the wellbeing of students.
The P&C met with potential new families and students at the Information Evening at the College on 6 May. Thanks to our wonderful Vice-President Bec Jarman for your time.
It was great to meet with so many families and excited Year 10 students from high schools both in and out of area. We even met families from Goulburn and the South Coast who are planning to move to Canberra if their kids get into our sought-after Narrabundah College.
Congratulations to those Narrabundah College students who were patient and helpful guides on the evening and to the talented students all around, including the jazz band, theatre and art students and French Bacc students flying the tricoleur!
The P&C also sold College branded keep cups at the information evening and they are still on sale for $15. Please be in touch with us if you would like to buy one.
One of the activities funded under our grant is the Bundah Bliss cookbook which aims to provide a community collection of family recipes to help your teenage kids as they transition to adulthood.
Send us your recipes, and we will publish them in 2021 for your children to take with them whether they are going off to university or starting work.
Please contribute your family’s favourite recipe and a photo that reflects the cultural diversity of our community. In the flyer attached you will find all necessary information. We are looking forward to recipes!
Please send your recipes before the end of May to parents Frida and Michael who are managing this special P&C project at firstname.lastname@example.org Once the cookbook is ready, we will host an event to launch it in the Engagement Hub.
P&C meetings are held at Narrabundah College in the school meeting room. Enter through the front of the school and please join us. A great opportunity to be involved with the College.

Special guest speaker, David McCarthy is at this meeting from the ACT Education Directorate. David will provide an update of where we are at with the College rebuild. If you recall, the government announced during the last election a commitment to spend $33 million on rebuilding and modernising the school. Two years of our P&C advocacy contributed to this important decision and we want to maintain our engagement with the project to ensure it suits the education needs of students into the future.
Come join us.
The P&C congratulates the newly elected parent members of the Narrabundah College school Board, Charles Pittar and Ric Curnow. We look forward to working closely with them and current parent representative Board member Peter Sawczak to help shape the school’s direction.
The hard work and efforts of the P&C President Jenny Curnow were well rewarded with the recent announcement of the award of funds to support the establishment of an engagement hub within the canteen at the College. The engagement hub space and facilities will allow activities to be held that supports the College Community in its entirety - the students, parents and carers and staff.
Our in-house interior designer, Angelique Nervale, worked tirelessly over the summer break sourcing new second-hand furniture, and designing the canteen space in consultation with the school and student bodies into a workable and desirable space for all students. The canteen space was given a fresh coat of paint and plenty of new couches, chairs, tables and hang out areas.
The P&C is looking forward to continuing this upgrade with the injection of engagement hub grant funds. A big thank you to Angelique for her time and efforts.
Engagement with stakeholders and College Design & Architecture Department for input into the College Modernisation project.
During the COVID school shutdown period an online zoom session was organised by the P&C with a counsellor from Headspace providing information for parents and carers on how best to support their students during these challenging times.
After the announcement that ACT Students would not be returning to school during Term 2 the P&C drafted and sent a letter to Chief Minister Berry advocating for the earlier return of students to the College. Our P&C President, Jenny Grant-Curnow, was interviewed by the Canberra Times which resulted in a very positive and balanced article, and ultimately a positive outcome and the return of students to school in Week 4 Term 2, 2020.
A lot of hard work and administration was undertaken by the P&C committee of 2019 to update and implement the P&C Constitution for compliance with the ACT P&C Council.
