Our school has an active P & C that raises funds to enhance our children's school environment and educational resources. We also organise parent social events so we can have some fun too!
The key fundraising events each year are the Mother's Day Fete and the Big Night Out. In addition, the P & C run the 2nd hand uniform stall (once a term).
In addition to the fundraising events, at the beginning of each year we ask for a voluntary contribution to our P & C fund. Over the year the P & C has been fortunate to have the generous support of parents though their time and effort, and also their financial contributions. The P & C levy is voluntary, however they are a major source of P & C funds. Payment by every family would result in $30,000 before additional fundraising is considered.
The annual fees are:
$140 for 1 child
$240 for 2 children
$330 for 3 children and $90 for each extra child thereafter
$75 per preschool child.
In 2018 the P & C spent $105K on the school. This included the following highlights:
$35k furniture for classrooms
$25k basketball court re-surfacing
$4k upgrade toilet taps
$4k Wishing tree items
$500 shadecloths for Preschool
AND also our regular annual commitments:
$25k part time Maths & Literacy teacher *
$5k Guided reading resources
$3k Learning apps and software licenses
$3k Year 6 leavers party
* In 2019 $25k will be allocated to Technology. The school will fund the part time teacher.
