The P&C Association is an important part of the school community and meets twice a term at school. The P&C is involved in fundraising, assisting in the organisation of some whole-school events, overseeing the running of the uniform shop, Bookclub and canteen, and furthering the relationship between the school and community. The most important thing about the P&C Association is that you get involved!
From the P&C
$100,000 for the School P&C
Our Nature Playground is On the Way.
The P&C is proud to announce that we have received in full the funding commitment from the new state government to pay for our nature playground.
The $100,000 grant was promised to the P&C by our new state member John Carey as part of a broader set of community based election commitments from the McGowan Government’s Local Projects, Local Jobs program.
Our new local member has wasted little time and the money is now with the school awaiting the finalisation of the playground design. Our principal Jo has been working closely with the grounds committee and they hope to have the final quotes and design ready to bring to the P&C this term.
The P&C is looking forward to seeing the project start to unfold over the coming months.
On the theme of fundraising, the P&C are continuing our campaign to support local business who support us. If you don’t have the opportunity to visit our farmers market on a Saturday morning, try supporting one of the local businesses that support us:
- Bakers Delight North Perth (in the North Perth Plaza) donate 5% of every transaction back to the P&C
- InSeason on Walcott (Cnr of Redfern and Walcott Street) donate 10% of every transaction back to the P&C
In the future we hope to expand on this, so if you know of other businesses who would be interested in a similar arrangement we would love to hear from them.
The Farmers Market
Our long serving farmers market committee chairman Campbell Baird has announced his retirement from the role. On behalf of the P&C I would like to thank Campbell for his tireless work over the years on the committee. Campbell has donated countless hours to the task of making the market the success it is today. The P&C is pleased to announce that Sophie Wallis has been generous to take up the role. We thank Sophie for this and look forward to working with her towards the continued success of the market.
Our canteen recently had an anniversary. We were happy to celebrate 10 years of continuous service from our canteen supervisor Tanya Waters. On behalf of the P&C I would like to thank and congratulate Tanya for her work over those years.
The canteen ladies have been busy lately changing up the menu so if you haven’t used the service lately I highly recommend you give it a try.
Our next meeting is on Tuesday 29 August, 7:30pm in the staff room. It would be great to see you there.
