Volunteer within the school

Volunteering is great fun and an important way to support the school, make great friends and of course, your kids love family involvement at the school. Volunteers are parents, carers, grandparents, community members.

There are many ways to get involved:

P&C Meeting

Attending a P&C meeting is a great way to get involved and find out what is coming up at the school and everyone is welcome to join.Ā 

The P&C gets together every 3rd and 8th week of the school term for a meeting.

The meetings start at 7pm and are held:Ā 

every 3rd week - via ZOOM,

every 8th week -Ā in the school staffroom.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME !

You do not have to join the committee or hold an official position. JUST COME ALONG to hear about, or contribute to, what is happening at our school. Being a member keeps you informed, gives you a voice, and gives you an opportunity to help with even just the one thing if you CHOOSE.

We would love to see YOU there and welcome new faces!

ToĀ join the P&C or if you have any questions please email:Ā secretary@wpspandc.com.

Ā Fundraising & Events

Each year theĀ Fundraising & EventsĀ team organises a wide range of fun activities for children and parents to get involved in. These events are crucial for raising funds to support a variety of school projects, programs and equipment. In the past, our school community has raised funds for new playground equipment, flexible learning classroom furniture, library resources, and new technology. Volunteering at a fundraising event is a great way to meet other parents from the same year group.

There are many ways to get involved:

  • Volunteering your time in person at a P&C event or fundraiserĀ - this could be helping to plan the event, donating goods for sale, helping to set up on the day, cooking on the barbecue, or packing up after an event
  • Volunteering your services in the preparation of a P&C event or fundraiser
  • Contribute your skill (painting, creating, catering, organising, marketing, grant writing or other)
  • Come along to the P&C meetingsĀ to share fundraising ideas.
  • Join the P&C sub-committee

We welcome your involvement!

Grounds

TheĀ Grounds CommitteeĀ is a sub-committee of the P&C which works in consultation with staff and parents to maintain the school grounds.

Working Bees

The Grounds Committee organises working bees several times a year to help keep the school grounds in top shape. Working bees not only reduce overall maintenance costs to the school, they also provide a great opportunity to meet other families.Ā 

Some working bee tasks include pruning, sweeping, weeding and mowing. Gardening experience is not required! All families are encouraged to attend at least one working bee each year. Details of upcoming working bees are advertised in 'The Billboard' and across our social media. You can also check for any available sign up by following this link: Volunteer Sign Up.

Vegetable Garden

The school also has a vegetable garden that is maintained regularly by parent and community volunteers once a fortnight on a Friday afternoon for one hour starting at 2pm.Ā Ā 

If you have some time to spare and would like to do some occasional light gardening, then you can sign up here:
