Report from School and Kindergarten Parents and Friends Association Meeting - Thursday 7th March - Rerun 

On Thursday 7th March, the AGM for the PFA was held, with the following positions being spilled:



Vice President




After many years on the committee, some members have stepped down, thus making way for new, fresh faces to take up these important roles. Unfortunately, the only position that was filled was Treasurer. 


The PFA performs a critical function in raising funds for our young people, allowing us to purchase items such as new basketball rings (approved by the PFA, and will go ahead), library books, docking stations, playground equipment, a cubby house, outdoor furniture, extra art room supplies, resources to support intervention, just to name a few. 


Wish lists are collected from both the teachers and the students, with funds being allocated to acquire the requested items when and where possible.


Funds are raised via various means, such as providing volunteers for Springfest (plus Market Day and Carols), pie drives, sausage sizzles, Easter and Christmas raffles, Bingo and Parma night, Cadbury chocolate (and other similar) drives, the Second-hand Uniform Shop, Hot Cross Buns, and Special Lunches (Subway, Pizza, Sushi, Bakers Delight). The Mother and Father’s Day stalls are run as more of a service for the children, as opposed to a for-profit event.  We are always looking for new ideas for fundraisers and have in the past tried lots of things to see what works and what doesn’t. Suggestions are most welcome and can be submitted to the office at any time.


Before COVID, the PFA enjoyed a healthy amount of volunteers for events, along with a fairly high attendance rate at the monthly meetings. Unfortunately, the past couple of years has seen numbers for both dramatically dwindle, leaving just a handful of volunteers working behind the scenes.


Consequently, we are appealing to our school and kinder communities to open their hearts (and calendars), to not only fill the vacant roles, but also volunteer for an hour or two. You are not required to join the committee, nor attend meetings. If people could volunteer where possible to help with things like wrapping raffle and/or stall gifts, or man the BBQ at a sausage sizzle, it would be greatly appreciated.  If every family did this just once a year, it would ensure the PFA continues to operate. We can no longer rely on the same few people to keep the show on the road. 


As it currently stands, with the aforementioned resignations, we cannot ensure there will be a PFA if new people don’t become involved. It would be a terrible shame to see our children suffer the results of a defunct PFA, but without the help of parents and carers, its survival cannot be assured.


Please come along to the next PFA meeting on Thursday 2nd May - all welcome. 

Easter Raffle - Drawn on Monday 25th March

The PFA will be wrapping the Easter prizes on Thursday 21st March, 9am, if anyone would like to come along to help.  Thank you. 


The Raffle will be drawn on Monday 25th March.  

Bulb Drive - Orders close 11th April

A flyer was sent home two weeks ago to order bulbs through Tesselaar -  This is solely an online fundraiser with 40% of funds coming back to the school.  In addition to the impressive catalogue range, Tesselaar are able to offer you even more bulbs online.
