Wilston State School Parents and Citizens Association

Situated in Brisbane's leafy inner-city suburb of Grange, sit beautiful 120-year-old buildings housing memories, experience and a wonderful state school.

Wilston State School P&C promotes the interests of children of Wilston State School and assists with the further development and improvements at Wilston State School.


Wilston P&C (Parents & Citizens) Association has a long-standing relationship with the school, working collaboratively with the leadership team to provide your children with opportunities. Through fundraising the P&C provides money to the school enabling the purchase of additional materials and equipment.


The Swimming Club, Uniform and Bookshop, Tuckshop and Wilston Kids Care are valuable services to the Wilston State School community and operated by staff and sub-committees of the P&C.

Importance of Sustainability


The P&C at Wilston State School places great importance on sustainabilty. We have in place the P&C's SustainabilityPolicy 2009. We also have in place the Classroom Air Conditioning Guidelines in association with the school.

The P&C supports Education Queensland's vision for sustainability in our school based on that agreed for the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development.

A world where everyone has the opportunity to benefit from a quality education and learn the values, behaviour and lifestyles required for a sustainable future and for positive societal transformation.

Heat Pumps to warm the Pool

The Swimming Club at Wilston State School has installed heat pump water heaters into the pool complex. Water is heated by travelling through pipes that pass through a space of heated air. The air is heated due to pressurisation. Funds gained from the Lord Mayor’s Sustainability Grant have allowed this project to occur. This system at Wilston State School will result in a saving of approximately 50 tonnes of carbon per year and should at least halve the heating costs each year.

Air Conditioning

With the air conditioning of L Block at Wilston State School in the September school holidays, all classrooms at the school are now air conditioned.

This was funded by parents from individual classes supported by the P&C. The instalation of air conditioning must be accompanied by the responsible and economic use of the air conditioning units. This was why the P&C negotiated with the school on the introduction and use of the Classroom Air Conditioning Guidelines.

The air conditioning of L Block followed consultation with the school community in an online survey that closed on 28 August 2009. The survey results were considered at the P&C meeting of 17 September 2009. Whilst the survey results showed very strong spport for the air conditioning of L Block of Wilston State School, the survey also found very strong support for sustainability in the Wilston State School community.



As a not-for-profit, member-driven and community-orientated association, Wilston P&C ensures that we proactively comply with relevant laws and standards, as well as strongly adhere to our community obligations, being the objects of their existence.
