Community - Parents and Citizens (P&C)

WHAT IS THE P&C ASSOCIATION?

P&C stands for Parents and Community Association, we are a group of interested parents of the school who meet with our Principal twice a term to discuss the direction of the school and come up with ideas for fundraising and how we can support school.

 

Meetings are held in the Staff room in week three and week seven of each term. These are advertised on the school planner and the classroom pinboards. The meetings are generally about 90 minutes long.

Any adult can join the P&C regardless of gender, age, and ethnicity. The more diverse the group the better it will represent our school.

 

WHAT DOES THE P&C DO?

• To encourage a positive school community spirit

• A means for all parents and caregivers to participate and get involved with the school and teachers

• Fundraising for literacy, learning and library resources, excursions, incursions and amenities for the school.

• Run the uniform shop with parent volunteers helping to sell school uniforms • Run the Canteen with a Manager and parent volunteers.

• Run school banking with assistance from Commonwealth Bank and parent volunteers.

The uniform room is open on Friday afternoons from 2.30pm until 3.00pm. Payment for uniforms is cash on the day or bank transfer prior to collection. We also have second hand uniforms available for sale. Please feel free to drop of any uniforms that you may longer need so that we can have a variety of sizes available for purchase.

 

The canteen is open Mondays and Fridays for both recess and lunch. We have a summer and winter menu that can be found at the canteen or on the school’s website. Currently we are a Pre order/Cash only canteen with lunch bags available outside the canteen.

 

THE END RESULT…

Through the continued support of fundraising and parent involvement we have helped fund new library books, library furniture and the library reading chair, Year 6 Camp, playground boat for ECE, floor artwork and toys in the undercover area, class excursions and incursions, bus fares and canteen equipment. A small portion of funds also contribute to acknowledging P&C parents and volunteers who leave with graduating students.

 

Past fundraising activities have included Sausage sizzles at Bunnings and School faction carnival, Cake stalls, Mother’s Day raffles, Movie nights, Lapathon, Card and calendar artworks, Car boot stall and Discos.

 

If you have any free time there are plenty of opportunities for you to help the P&C and your children.

 

We are always on the lookout for new ideas so come along, get involved with the school community and meet some other like minded people, even make some new friends!
