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 Wendy Anderson, who runs the Bingo in the School Hall every Thursday, and together with our other P&C volunteers, 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.
The P & C also runs a Breakfast Club in our P & C Room on 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 volunteer, please come to the P & C meeting and have a cuppa and chat with the current members.
