Our P & C is run and assisted by a great group of volunteers. In the next two years, we will be losing some key volunteers who have given their all to the success of our events, activities, Canteen and Uniform Shop. In 2017, we will be conducting succession planning to ensure that the strength and activities of the P & C continues well into the future.
With changes to the funding of education in the near future, it is even more prudent that we have a strong volunteer base who can continue to fundraise and extend our school community to ensure that our children have the resources and infrastructure for their learning.
We also need to “share the load” or “share the love” as we like to call it! Therefore, we are looking for volunteers to assist us in the following positions. If you are able to help let us know!
In 2017, we are looking to source funding for the completion of our canteen upgrade and our Sustainable Sensory Garden. Our ability to source funding externally alleviates the need to run fundraisers internally through our School Community so parents don’t feel like they are constantly handing out funds.
The coordinator would work closely with the P & C Executive and sub-committees. If you like writing tenders and proposals and sourcing funding then this just might be the role for you!
Every Friday and for special events our Canteen sells wonderful Barista Coffees. The Coffee machine is operated by a limited number of volunteers, well actually two. We need a volunteer or two to assist us on a rostered basis to provide this service to our families. If you think you would like to be our Barista, please drop us a line! Even if you don’t know how to make barista coffee, we can train you!
It’s a great way to volunteer, meet other parents from the school and make good friends. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sensory Garden Coordinator
Following on from our 2016 20 Anniversary Paver Fundraiser, we are now looking for a volunteer to coordinate the development and activities for the creation of our Sustainable Sensory Garden.
This will be quite a big role as you source funding (in conjunction with the Grants Coordinator), volunteers for working bees, engage a landscaper, liaise with the School and so on to bring this garden to fruition. So for all the green thumbs out there, those with an interest in the environment or just want to be part of very special part of our school volunteer for the role of Sensory Garden Coordinator.
Currently, the P & C communicates with our School Community via our Facebook page, our website and this Newsletter that is also distributed via the Skoolbag app. If you love social media and communicating in an online format, then you just might like this role!
It will include an administrator role for the website and the Facebook pages so a bit of knowledge here would be a great bonus. In addition, you will also assist the Executive Committee in creating a Social Media Policy to protect and administer our various sites.
The P & C Executive are looking for a volunteer who is passionate about the value of our volunteers within our school community. This role is responsible for the recruitment, management and support of Volunteers to assist the P & C across all of events and activities to provide better outcomes for our School.
If you are interested in any of these volunteer positions, then please contact us! We would love to hear from you!
