P & C at Spearwood Primary School
The P&C is an integral part of the Spearwood School Community with a dedicated volunteer group working to support a number of initiatives. The main focus is fundraising for the school and we work closely with the Principal and staff to list priorities and then organise functions accordingly. These include: School Discos, Sausage Sizzles, Cake Stalls, Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day Stalls, Christmas and Easter Raffles.
A special mention for Sheila Loveland, who runs the Bingo in the School Hall every Thursday, and single handily, raises thousands of dollars for our school every year.
The P & C runs a school canteen which operates on Fridays during school term. Parent volunteers are required to operate this service.
We have some exciting programs in place at school including, “School Banking”, where the children get to bank each week and get loads of rewards and prizes from Commonwealth Bank.
The P & C also runs a Breakfast Club in our P & C Room on Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 8.00am until the first siren of the morning. This is free to all children and they are encouraged to come and socialise, chat, laugh and enjoy a lovely breakfast of fruit, cereal, toast and milo drink before they start their day. Our children love this and go to class with a full tummy, ready and eager to learn. The teachers have noticed a positive difference. The Breakfast Club is run by parents in their own time and new volunteers are always welcome.
If any parents would like to join our P & C to help with any functions and programs, please come in to the P & C Room and have a cuppa and chat with the current members.
