Darlington Primary has an active P&C whose major objectives are:

  • promoting cooperation between parents, teachers, students and members of the general community;
  • assisting in the provision of resources, facilities and amenities
  • fostering community interest in educational matters.

Parents are encouraged to attend meetings to learn about programs operating in the school, share information, help shape policy and plans, and build positive attitudes to education.

The P & C meetings are held in the staff room and are usually on alternate: Tuesday evenings @ 7.00pm or Tuesday mornings @ 9.15am

All parents and other citizens of our community are most welcome. If parents/community members are unable to attend meetings, they are welcome to approach P & C members to discuss their ideas or assist in fundraising ventures.

A representative of the P & C is also on the School Council.

Rowena MacKinnon - Incoming P&C President 2016

After being quite taken with the natural beauty and strong community in Darlington during our housing search, my partner and I moved here in 2010. We quickly added to our family with our daughter who has now joined the ELC at Darlington Primary School.

I work from home which enables me to pursue many interests including being an active member of the Darlington Primary School community and the Hills community as a whole. Our new Executive Committee promises to deliver a brand new approach to delivering great events, fundraising and initiatives to the children, carers and citizens connected to the school and I am excited to be working with them. All are welcome at our monthly meetings.

The P & C is a fantastic way to get involved with your child’s school: voice your thoughts, learn how we get things done and offer to help out. With such a fantastically diverse range of people in our school I look forward to an interesting, inspiring and fun time as President of the P&C.

As I embrace change and growth each year with my family I look forward to doing the same with the DPS Parents and Citizens.


Our School

The school is located on a beautiful three-hectare site in the heart of the Darlington village, in the hills east of Perth. In 2012, the school celebrated its Centenary and maintains a long and strong tradition of providing quality education for children from the local area. It is not uncommon for current students to have followed their parents and grandparents in attending the school.
