Frequently Asked Questions
How much does P&C raise?
The P&C aims to raise a minimum of $150,000 through P&C fees and various fundraising activities throughout the year. Approximately $100,000 is raised through the voluntary P&C fees. A levy of $295 per child is included on the term account.
Why am I being asked to contribute to P&C Fees?
In 2017 the P&C will continue to help the school to go ‘beyond the basics’ and provide more for our children by contributing:
- $80,000 for specialised teaching support – amounting to an additional 7 days of teaching time every week. These additional teachers conduct valuable learning activities that benefit each child.
- $40,000 to our ongoing technology purchase and maintenance programme – we now have a fleet of computers, iPads and interactive whiteboards in every classroom.
- $20,000 to allow teachers to purchase high quality learning materials.
- $20,000 for special projects within the school
- Funds towards the ‘shell’ project
How is it decided where the money goes?
Each year a survey is emailed to all parents and teachers. The survey gives every parent and teacher an opportunity to give feedback on how the funds are spent, develop a wishlist for the next year and have a say in the fundraising methods.
The survey results are presented and discussed at a P&C meeting. Following the meeting the P&C Executive develop the budget for the next year and discuss with the Principal, Mrs Jeanette Cope. The draft budget is posted on the P&C website, discussed and voted on at the next P&C meeting.
This process ensures that the money raised is channeled to where it is most needed and in line with community wishes.
How has it helped to school in the past?
The P&C also pays for enhancements to the school’s assets and facilities, including classroom computers and iPads, developing and enhancing the school grounds and ensuring that every class room has an air conditioner. The P&C also periodically funds major building works, such as the building of the COLAs, the school hall and the school library.
