East Victoria Park Primary School’s Parents and Citizens Association Inc.

Established under the Schools Education Act of 1999, the East Victoria Park Primary Schools’ Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) is the collective voice of parents, carers and citizens from the school community who advocate for positive change that will truly make a difference.

The P&C supports East Victoria Park Primary School and East Victoria Park Education Support Centre, who share the grounds at 30 Beatty Avenue East Victoria Park WA 6101. Approximately 70 incredible and dedicated staff are responsible for the education of almost 450 children. The student community represents more than 55 cultures, and 50% of students have a language background other than English.
