The P&C provides an opportunity for all parents and citizens to learn about the educational programs in the school, and support the provision of amenities. We recognise and appreciate the need for teachers and parents to work together and to do all we can to facilitate children’s learning. Involved parents can work to ensure the school provides the best possible education programs to our children.


Funds are raised through the operation of the East Kimberley College P&C school canteen. All profits are distributed by the P&C to provide much needed extra amenities at our school for the benefit of our children’s education.


The P&C meets twice per term at 5.30pm. Please come along, everyone is welcome. New members are always valued at our school P&C.

Nature Play update


The intention of the playgrounds is for children to have free play at recess and lunch, and for teachers to schedule class time in the playground. In addition it will provide a calming space for any students to visit that may be having a difficult day.


EKC and P&C started planning two nature playgrounds in 2017, with the P&C paying for Vanessa from MudMaps Broome to consult with us and create two plans. Our ECE plan is final and includes amazing water play facilities. Water play is already a big part of the day in ECE, particularly in Term 4 with this lovely heat wave. However our Year 1/2 plan needs review as the original chosen location is no longer suitable.
