P&C

.

 

Mission Statement 

Together we support and encourage the school and its faculties to provide a positive learning environment where everybody is inspired to be their best.

 

The P&C is open to all parents of students attending our school and all citizens within the school community. We promote the interests of the school by bringing parents, citizens, students and teaching staff into close co-operation, and by raising funds to provide facilities and equipment for the school.  Members of the Executive Committee and Sub-Committees are elected at the Annual General Meeting which is held at the end of each year. 

What we do

The P&C generally meets monthly on a Wednesday evening at 7.00pm in the school library. These meetings start with a report from the school Principal, followed by reports from the Treasurer and sub-committees. As well, guest speakers are invited to give presentations on topics of interest. P&C meetings also provide a forum for parents to raise issues for discussion about the school and local community.

The P&C also promotes fundraising activities to assist the school in providing general and specialist educational programs and equipment for teachers and students. Funds raised by sub-committees and from fundraising activities are held in trust and donated to the school on a yearly basis at the discretion of the P&C Association.

At the Annual General Meeting held at the end of each year, relevant sub-committees provide an annual trading profit and loss statement and all positions become vacant. All parents are invited to apply for positions and are formally elected to take up their roles for the forthcoming year.

Lines of Communication

All communication (ideas, recommendations, requests) are welcome for discussion, however we ask for them to be presented in writing (via email is fine) one week prior to the next P&C meeting to make the agenda.  Submissions will be reviewed by the executive and, if appropriate to our mission statement, will be passed on to the relevant sub-committee OR you will be asked to present your communication at the meeting.

All requests for changes /additions to the fund-raising calendar must be made via the Fund Raising Co-Ordinator.  

Fundraising

The P&C also promotes fundraising activities to assist the school in providing general and specialist educational programs and equipment for teachers and students. Funds raised by sub-committees and from fundraising activities are held in trust and donated to the school on a yearly basis at the discretion of the P&C Association.

At the beginning of term 1 the Principal proposes a 'wishlist' of items which are needed by the school and this is used as a focus for fundraising. In recent years monies raised by the P&C have enabled the school to purchase new playground play equipment, a shade tent to go over an area where children eat their lunch (next to the basketball court), and much needed readers for the Literacy Centre.

Many new musical instruments have been purchased by the Band Committee in the last couple of years with money donated by the P&C. This has enabled a larger number of children to learn an instrument and join the school band.
