P&C Association

Our Children - Our School - Our Community

Welcome!

Our P&C is an important part of our school and aims to:
  
  • build a stronger school community where all students benefit,
  • achieve quality educational outcomes for our students,
  • use cooperation to create a foundation for close parent-school relationships and fostering transparency and accountability. 
 
Our hardworking P&C is responsible for:
  
  • managing the business of the Association,
  • promoting community interest of educational matters,
  • facilitating the development and further improvement of the school,
  • encouraging closer cooperation between
  • the parents of students attending the school,
  • other members of the community,
  • staff and students of the school, and
  • compliance with the P&C Code of Conduct.
 
We are very committed to ensuring our students have every opportunity and access to quality to provisions we are able to offer. We try to provide things that the school budget cannot accommodate, including:
  
  • upgrading and replacing of playground equipment,
  • smart boards for classrooms,
  • new books for classrooms and the Library,
  • educational resources, and so much more.  
 

We are involved in a variety of school activities from policy to financial planning, as well as:  

  • managing School Banking through our local Bendigo Bank and Commonwealth Bank. If you would like to volunteer with School Banking team, please let us know.
  • Hiring out "Duncan" the Dunking Machine - please email PandC@WoombyeSS.eq.edu.au for all enquiries about hiring Duncan.
  • Organisation of fundraising activities, working bees and school functions e.g. School Fair, discos, movie nights, sausage sizzles, Mother's and Father's Day Stalls, Christmas Markets and free dress days.
 
  • Communication

    We encourage everyone to become members of our great P&C! It is by far the best way to get involved and keep up-to-date!

  • Dunking Machine Hire

    Our Dunking Machine aka “Duncan” is an old favourite that is always enjoyed by kids and adults alike.

  • Executive

    All Executive members are responsible for ensuring that the P&C fulfils its legislative requirements.

  • General P&C Meetings

    The committee, along with other school members, parents and, on occasion, teachers, discuss general happenings within the school.

  • Policy, Procedures and Processes

    Policies, procedures and processes have been developed by The Department of Education and Training.

  • Safe School Travel

    In late 2016, the P&C formed a Safe School Travel Committee that consists of the Principal, parents, teachers, our Adopt-a-Cop, our local Member of Parliament.

  • School Banking

    Banking through our School Banking service earns our school P&C valuable funds through commissions, and more importantly aims to teach responsible money management and budgeting strategies to children from an early age.

  • Specialist Roles

    In 2016, over 70 awesome WSS parents and community members jumped onboard the #AwesomeTrain to do their #JustOneThing to make our school a better place to be.
