How the P&C helps the kids at WESS

5/02/2018
The Parents & Citizens Association is an important part of WESS!
 
Did you know the P&C runs five services with ~25 staff?
  •  5-star TUCKSHOP – refurbished by the P&C in 2013/14.
  •  OSHC (outside school hours care). Every day we now have 130 kids in after school care and we are looking at expanding!
  •  UNIFORM shop doing a great job getting everyone in the correct uniform!
  •  Water Rats SWIM club with after school lessons and a fantastic club on Thursday nights with the best haloumi burgers!
  • Tennis Court hire to the community.
While also
  • Applying for Grants to improve school facilities
  • Providing input into the building program
  • Fostering relationships between everyone involved in the school
And FUNDRAISING!
  • With the best FIESTA ever. A highlight of the school year! Last year we raised $46,000.
  •  Fathers, Mothers and Carers Day stalls, Movie nights, Art Show catering, Active school travel, the list goes on….
Recent contributions the P&C has made to the school include:
  • Prep/Year 1 playground has been made awesome (shades to come)
  • Big Ass fans in the hall that will keep everyone cooler
  •  IT equipment and interactive whiteboards
  •  Annually up to $20,000 of new home readers
  •  And lots of other things….
The P&C relies on VOLUNTEERS!
So much can be achieved through the P&C and School working together. To do this we need people from all walks of life who are committed to delivering great outcomes for your children and our school. Everybody has a role to play and your ideas will be heard. The more people involved in our P&C the more exciting and successful it will be! 

 

Maybe you can help a few hours a year of maybe a couple of hours a month? There are opportunities for everyone to contribute. Parents, friends, Year 5 & 6 students are all welcome. Some options are:
  • Updating the website
  • Rebranding the P&C (our letterhead and this brochure need you!)
  • Preparing lunches in the tuckshop
  •  Selling uniforms in the uniform shop
  • Writing grant applications
  • Help with fundraising activities
 
  • Cooking the bbq at swim club or timing the races
  •  Set up and pull down of events
  • Wrapping gifts twice a year
  • School banking reconciliation
  •  …and if you’re really keen you could become a committee member!
