Website Coordinator

The Website Coordinator is responsible for maintaining this P&C website.

A key part of this role is maintaining the minutes of all the committees. Under our constituation, minutes are to be kept indefinitely. There is no store of hard copies of minutes (or correspondence unless it is enclosed in the minutes) so this website becomes the permanent record of the minutes.

The Website Coordinator is also responsible for maintaining the registration of the domain. The cost of that is a minor reimburseable expense but still needs to be approved by the P&C in advance.

The other aspect of the website is to provide helpful information to parents (hence the FAQs, News, Links, Contacts, documents and other information). In 2007 when I was a new parent at Mount Lawley Senior High School, I found it hard to find information on the P&C (and the school was bad too!). So I created this web site to supplement the mailing list I took over in 2006. Over the years I have had many parents thank me for the information they have found. So that feedback has inspired me to keep doing that. (John Pryor 2021-07-18)

Mailing List Coordinator

The Mailing List Coordinator is responsible the regular and timely compilation and distribution of emails to the parents/guardians.

Perhaps the biggest part of this job is liaising with many people to get information, vet it for correctness and distribute it.

At the beginning of each year, they will correspond with the school's Vice-Principal to obtain the email addresses of the parents who indicated they wish to receive P&C email. There is a field for this on the student enrolment form.

Naturally, they need to comply with spamming laws (e.g., provide an unsubscribing mechanism).

This role has historically been done by the Website Coordinator but it can easily be separated into two separate roles.
