USUALLY your P&C committee looks for ways to raise some extra funds into the school while mustering volunteers for the next event.
But Nemingha's committee is broaching mental health and well being in the community with a range of workshops and events in the pipeline.
P&C member Rebecca Jordan described herself as a relatively new face in the outer-Tamworth community.

But she has been welcomed with open arms and has since been driving the new P&C initiative.
"I'm not a local, but I feel privileged to live there and send my kids to that school," she said.
"It's so lovely and it is just my way giving back after being welcomed so well."
The P&C was able to secure funding from the Hunter New England and Central Coast Primary Health Network (PHN) to run a number of mental health focused events.
It included a series of workshops at the Nemingha school centred on managing anxiety which were hosted by Katie Godden.
"Basically they are just incentives to get people out of the farm and away from the drought and just reconnecting and talking," Ms Jordan said.
"Just getting together can be as beneficial as going to a psychiatrist."
The next workshop has been pencilled for this Wednesday under the theme "take back control of your thinking - strategies to help yourself and your mates with stress and anxiety".
Ms Jordan said a number of casual events were in the works for later in the year.
The Nemingha events received grant funding from the PHN's "empowering our communities" program.
The program "provides funding for community led mental health, social and emotional well-being and suicide prevention initiatives".
An event recently held in Walcha was funded through the same program.
About 90 people came together for a "drought dinner" where there were opportunities to reach out to local support workers.
