P & C
Who we are and what we do?
- The P&C brings parents together to share information and views.
- We work alongside the school on educational matters.
- We raise funds to purchase additional resources for our children (eg classroom materials, playground equipment).
- The P&C also runs the Uniform Shop, Scholastic Book Club, Safety House program and Fathering Project School Group.
In 2017 the P&C raised over $15,000 and, amongst other things, helped to fund the purchase of additional iPads for use throughout the school as well as supporting classroom programs with educational equipment. We also contributed towards the planting of mature trees to provide shade over the Senior Playground. The end of the year saw a Water Fun Day to celebrate a great year at Greenmount Primary School. Our events throughout the year, including the Colour Fun day and the quiz Night, were enjoyed by our GPS Community.
2017 also saw the Fathering Project School Group get under way (known as Guardians of Greenmount). Their first event was held in Term 4 with around 50 dads/father figures and kids attending. An amazing turnout organised by some of our Dads on the P&C.
There is a noticeboard under the verandah, just outside the office, that is regularly updated with news from the P&C, meeting dates etc, so when you are next passing please have a look. Information is also posted on the noticeboards outside each classroom.
Please also check out our Facebook page to be kept up-to-date with P&C events and other school information - https://www.facebook.com/GreenmountPrimarySchoolPnC/
Members of the P&C are ordinary, everyday people that enjoy being part of a team. If you would like to come and join in the fun we would love to see you. There are no expectations or skill set required, just a willingness to muck in and help out when you can.
The P&C meetings are held the 4th and 8th week of each term, on a Tuesday evening in the staff room. The first meeting of the year is the Annual General Meeting where nominations are collected for new office bearers, so if you want to come along and have a go at a position or just want to see what the P&C is all about please feel free to join us. Membership is a whopping 20c per year!
If you have a point you want discussed at a P&C meeting, please email firstname.lastname@example.org; this will ensure your item is added to the agenda of the next general meeting.
