FROM THE PRESIDENT
Bunnings BBQ Fundraiser
The PFA would like to thank all the volunteers who assisted in the running of the Bunnings BBQ at the Vermont South Store on Saturday May 11th. The PFA was able to raise a profit of $856 on the day and the money raised will further enable the PFA to provide support for the College activities.
The 2019/20 Entertainment Books digital edition is now available for purchase using the following link - digital membership here.
A portion of each sale goes to the PFA.
School Banking will take place on each Tuesday of the School Term.
2nd Hand Uniform Shop
The Uniform Shop is located just next to the Multi-Purpose Hall and student drop off area.
The Uniform Shop will open from 8:30am - 9:30am each Wednesday during the Term.
Please note that due to the generosity of families; we currently have a large stock of second-hand uniforms at the present time and will not be accepting further donations of uniforms until the start of Term 3.
Icy Pole Friday
Icy Pole Friday will take place every Friday lunchtime.
Parents are reminded that if you are volunteering at school, you'll need a current Working With Children Check. These can be done online and then submitted at a post office at no cost.
The school also requires parents who volunteer or go on excursions to read and sign a Child Safety Code of Conduct form, which is available from the school office.
Parent Participation Hours
Families can participate by being involved in a variety of activities. During the year, notices will be sent out requesting parent help at various events or activities, for example, helping at sports carnivals, covering library books, icy pole Fridays, 2nd Hand Uniform Shop, PFA events, classroom help or attending working bees.
Parents are required to record the hours they have completed in the Parent Hours Book which is kept in the College Office. You will be charged a Parent Participation fee of $250 at the commencement of each year and will be credited at the end of the term for any work done. You will be credited at a rate of $25 per hour of work completed, up to a maximum of $250 for the year. The time requirement for each family is ten hours per year.
Keep an eye out for notices in the Week at A Glance for activities and events being held each Term.
