June P&C Meeting
June P&C meeting is moved to Tuesday 27th June at 7:30pm in the school staff room. Please come along and find out what’s happening in our school. All welcome!

Voluntary Contributions 2017
A big thanks to the many families who have donated and paid their voluntary contributions for 2017. We have had a good response this year, but we still have a number of projects including the library upgrade and new technology which we still need funding for.

It is not too late to make your payment. Payment can be made at the office with the Voluntary Contributions form or via the QKR application (downloadable from the Apple App store or from the Google Play store).

Last year we used your generous donations to pay for the new grass area, new play equipment and the floor covering in front of the hall. All of these projects help to make our school a great, first-class school environment for our children. The P&C aims to distribute funding to the benefit of all years and all students. Your money will have a direct impact on your child’s schooling.

Spring Fair 2017 Committee
Want to be a part of  the Spring Fair 2017 Committee? The Spring Fair is one of the most fun and hugely anticipated days for our children and a highly rewarding event for the entire Eastwood School Community. We are gearing up to building a wonderful committee of parents who would love to be a part of this event again.

 This is what we are looking for…

You love organising.
 You enjoy working together with parents just like you.
 You have loads of enthusiasm. 
 And you have an hour to spare each week.

If this sounds like you so far, then please email Shilpa on shilpa@shilpatul.com or call on 0424480613.

 Cheers,
 Shilpa and Atul
 Co-Convenors Spring Fair 2017

Looking for the next Spring Fair convenor
Spring Fair is a major event which happens every year at our school. We have over 700 volunteers who help make the day a success and thousands of people come through our gates to enjoy this event.
For the past 3 years, school parents Shilpa and Atul have done a fantastic job in ensuring that the day is a big success. The role they take on is the Spring Fair convenor and this role is responsible for coordinating, planning and overseeing all of the activities for Spring Fair. This role is challenging but also extremely rewarding when the day arrives. This year will be the last Spring Fair that Shilpa and Atul will be in the convenor role, as they are year 6 parents.
We are looking to find someone to take on the role of Spring Fair convener for 2018. If you are interested, now is an excellent opportunity to spend time with Shilpa and Atul in their final year to see what is required in this role.
If you have any questions or you are interested in finding out more about the role please contact me via the P&C email at pc@eastwood.nsw.edu.au

Volunteers and Helpers Needed for P&C

The school P&C runs a number of activities in the school including Canteen, Uniform shop and fundraising to improve the school for our children. We are a group of parents who volunteer our time to make our school a great place for our children.

Next year the P&C will have several areas where we need people who are willing to help during 2017. If you have good accounting skills or can help with communications or help with organising our meetings, we very much need your help. This would require a couple of hours every week during school term during 2017.
We have other parent helpers around who can guide and assist anyone who is new and this is a rewarding experience, with all of the work going directly to benefit our school.
If you would like more information on what roles will be available or information on the required commitment, please contact myself at pc@eastwood.nsw.edu.au

In 2016 the school P&C helped to deliver a large amount of investment into the school including a new grass area, new play equipment, $30,000 worth of new computers and the new floor covering in front of the hall. We work to benefit all children across all grades. Please consider helping the P&C and making the school a better place for our children.

The Parents & Citizens’ Association (P&C) at Eastwood School would like to welcome all new families to our wonderful and vibrant school community. The P&C works closely with the school executive and staff in a highly valuable way and to the benefit of all students and their families. We are a community-minded voluntary organisation and welcome the support of all parents – there are many opportunities for you to assist, regardless of skill, language or background. We have prepared this booklet for new families. It provides a brief overview of:

What the P&C does at Eastwood Public;
How we raise money;
Where our funds are spent; and
How parents can become involved.
We hope you find the information helpful and we look forward to meeting you soon!

2017 Class lists
The Family Social Club has begun collecting names for the Class lists. In the past parents have found the Class Lists to be extremely useful for play dates, party invitations, emergency contacts etc. If you would like to add your details to the class lists, please use the link below to an online form. This will be closed off shortly to collate the information. Thanks to all the parents who have already added their details.
