TPPS P & C Building Fund

TPPS P & C Building Fund


Your P & C is always looking for alternative funding opportunites to support our School and ensure that educationally, our children have the very best that we can provide for them.

Since 2015, your P & C has been investigating various ways in which the P & C can fundraise for the school without overloading our school community with too many fundraisers and giving back at the same time.

We are very pleased to announce that your P & C has established the Tacking Point Public School P & C Building Fund with endorsement as deductible gift recipient status that simply means all donations over $2 are tax deductible to you!

The Tacking Point Public School P & C Association has established the TPPS P & C Building Fund with the expressed intention of raising money for the construction, improvement and maintenance of our School buildings. The Fund is managed and operated by the School Building Fund Committee, which is part of the school’s P&C.

We are aiming to raise funds to fund projects that have been identified in consultation with the P & C, by our Principal, Mr Harris and the teaching staff.  It could include such items as:

  • Installation of fixed air conditioning units
  • Upgrades to our classrooms including carpet, painting, storage etc
  • Upgrades to fixtures in the Canteen or Installation of permanent P & C Uniform Shop/Storage

But we need your support! The P&C are requesting contributions to the Building Fund. If you run a business you could also contribute via that or potentially ask your workplace if they would be interested in making a donation.

Building the future with spirit is about contributing what you can – gifts large and small are all received with thanks. All donations greater than $2 are tax deductible and can be made at any time throughout the year.

Picture Products are coming!

Picture Products

The P & C is very proud to announce a new fundraiser for our School that is loads of fun and creates special memories for you and your child!

Turn your child’s treasured memories into durable, high-quality melamine Pictureplates that will last a lifetime!

Both decorative and useful, Pictureplates are simply beautiful. Children love eating off their very own Pictureplates or drinking out of their personally designed cup. These beautiful keepsakes will be used every day and are also a lovely present for someone special.

We are also offering a range of other products decorated with your child’s artwork, such as Pictureclocks, Water Bottles, Calendars, Phone Covers, Mouse Pads and Placemats.

Your child can use photos, markers, hand and footprints and paints to create their artworks, and you can order as many copies of your products as you’d like, it’s a fantastic gift idea for grandparents and family members, so think ahead for Birthday and Christmas presents.

We would love for you to join in this exciting and creative activity that will provide much needed funding for our wonderful school as well!

A sample of the Picture Plate will be available to view at the Canteen.

What’s involved?

Quite simply, your child needs to draw a picture on the templates provided in the Information Pack being sent home this week with every child. You then select which product you would like – plate, clock etc then order and pay!

Templates are to be done at home and must be returned by Thursday 25th May with the order form and payment in the plastic envelope provided.

Orders and Payments

Order Forms will be distributed to all students at the end of this week.

Our P&C volunteers will be in the Year 6 seating area to collect your child’s artworks & payments daily from 8.30 am – 9.00 am on Monday 22nd May to Thursday 25th May.
