Why do we Fundraise?
Government funding only covers costs to a certain point and therefore to bring to life special projects and programs the CCPS P&C conducts additional fundraising throughout the year. This allows us to go beyond the ‘basics’, which are provided by the government through our taxes, to provide materials and experiences that further enrich and extend the students’ education. This funding also makes available to teachers a wider range of professional development and resources.
Towards the end of each year the P&C meets with the Principal to identify where P&C contributions can make the biggest difference in our children’s primary school outcomes and experience.
From this meeting we then build an annual budget to present at our final P&C meeting for the year. Once this budget is approved it sets the basis for the next years fundraising activities.
Fundraising at CCPS
Throughout the year we have various fundraising activities that involve the entire school community. These activities vary from term to term and rely on the wonderful support of everyone. Please refer to the school calendar for planned events.
Draft Budget for 2018
The budget for the 2018 Fundraising will be voted on at the P&C meeting to be held on Tuesday 12th December 2017. The community is able to review the document and provide comments at the meeting.
Social Events at CCPS
Each year there are a number of social events within the school – from class lunches to cocktail parties – there is plenty of social fun for everyone. Please watch the school calendar for events throughout the year.
