Corrimal Public School P&C
When we meet: at 3.15pm on the second Tuesday of each month during term time. Minutes are available on the school website after they have been ratified at the following meeting.
Who can come: Anyone from the school community who would like to is welcome to attend meetings. If you want to vote, you'll need to become a financial member. The cost is just $1 per year.
What we do: The P&C (Parents & Citizen's) Committee exists to support the school, its students and staff. Our aim is to work together to make their school experience the best possible for our children. This involves both fundraising and working in other ways.
We successfully raise funds in a variety of ways, with regular events throughout the school year such as Mother's and Father's Day stalls, Carols by Candlelight and a biennial fete, and occasional events such as Bunning's fundraiser barbecues. We actively seek help with these events and welcome suggestions, assistance in running planned events, and donations to be used as prizes, etc.
In recent years the funds raised have been directed to two major projects: heating and cooling systems in all classrooms(completed) and the purchase of laptops for use throughout the school(ongoing). In addition to direct fundraising we also seek sponsorship for our Computers for Kids program. For more information about sponsorship opportunities email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We also operate a volunteer-run healthy foods canteen. While keeping prices as low as possible for our families, we do turn a small profit, which is returned to the school community via the P&C.
As well as fundraising, the P&C acts as a conduit between the school community and teachers and staff, contributing ideas and suggestions for the school.
All of this work is possible because of our wonderful parents and school community.
How you can contribute: The best way is to come along to a meeting! But if you have something you'd like the P&C to consider and you can't make it in person, you can email it to email@example.com with the subject header "P&C Agenda" and a brief explanation of the issue.
Other ways to contribute is through volunteering. If you have an expertise in a particular field or skill (such as accounting, sewing, gardening etc) you can share or to spare some time to help organise or run an event, even if it's just an hour to help out on the BBQ or deliver flyers to promote events. You will find participating at CPS to be rewarding and fun. It's great to be able to express support for your child's education by being actively involved and actually see some results for your efforts. CPS P&C always appreciates their parent volunteers, as does our teachers and staff.
