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
From the Kyilla Carols Committee
Last Friday the Kyilla community celebrated the Kyilla Christmas Carols for 2017. The evening was a resounding success on many levels and it was a lovely night to see all our children perform and to celebrate the end of the school year.
A BIG thank you to all the members of the carols committee: Amanda Lohman; Carlee Prider; Clare Henville; Dixie Dart; Jules Poland; Kim Beauchamp and Leanne Wilson and to our amazing MC Lucy Ewing. Thanks also to Mrs Christine Brandon and staff for teaching the children a wonderful array of performance items. It was a thoroughly entertaining evening. And also thanks to all the wonderful volunteers who helped make the evening so successful and memorable.
A special extra BIG thank you goes out to Megan Wendt who was the Carols coordinator for the second year in a row. Megan did an amazing job co-ordinating the committee and the whole event and we sincerely thank her for her hard work. Unfortunately Megan is leaving our school community at the end of the year so we will be looking for a new carols co-ordinator for 2018.
The fundraising through the pizzas, major raffle and selling glow sticks, tattoos and candle lights covered the costs of putting on the carols. The proceeds from the Year 5 fundraising through the general raffles and cake stall (which was amazing) will be used for the 2018 Year 6 leavers and totalled an additional $1,012.
Thank you to everyone who contributed in any way to the success of this great P&C event. We look forward to celebrating this event again in 2018.
If anyone has any feedback on the event please send it to the school.
Thanks to everyone who turned out to last Tuesday’s meeting.
As always we had a productive meeting with some of the key points being:
- The approval of funding for a school sports uniform (for carnivals and interschool events)
- The approval of funding for additional shade tents for the farmers market
- The agreement to aid “waste free Wednesdays” by working with each class to make their own bees wax paper. Many thanks to Pauline Grayson for her great idea.
We have also had a couple of recent fundraising activities. Thanks first to Kylie Henderson for organising the Entertainment Books for this year and raising $1,204.00 for the school. Thanks also to Carlee Prider and Amanda Lohman for organising “Dancing in the Dark”. I believe the first effort was a great success with almost 40 parents attending.
This time of year always starts to get busy in the social calendar, however don’t forget to save dates in your diary for:
- Paella at Kyilla – Friday 10 November 4:30 to 7:30pm
- Christmas Carols – Friday 8 December
- The Christmas Farmers Market – Tuesday 19 December 4pm to 8pm
As always, our last P&C meeting of the year is a social event which is a great opportunity for everyone involved with the P&C during the year to catch up. The dinner will be held on Tuesday the 21 November at a yet to be determined location. Please keep an eye out on Tiqbiz for further information.
