Notice of next P&C meeting
The next P&C meeting will be tomorrow, Wednesday the 15th of March. We welcome all parents and anyone who is interested from the school community to attend. The P&C is a group of school parents who work together to improve the school experience for all families. We would love to have you along at our upcoming meeting. We will be in the same building as the school office at the opposite end. Meeting starts at 7:30pm..
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Voluntary Contributions Thank You
A big thanks to everyone who contributed to this year’s P&C Voluntary Contributions. We were able to raise a generous amount of funds which will go directly to benefit the school. Each year your donations go to fund many projects throughout the school. An example is the recently completed soft-fall play area in from of the hall under the COLA. These projects are only possible with the help of school families donating time and funds. It is not too late to donate for this year. If you would still like to donate please place your donation at the office.
P&C President Eastwood Public School
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!
