It has been a very rewardingyear and I am thankful tohave had the opportunity to contribute in the role of President. It has been a privilegeto volunteer alongside parents/carers, P&C staff,school staff and membersof our communitywhose interestit is to provide the best possible learning environmentfor our children.

In keepingwith traditionwehave achieved great successes in the last twelvemonths, some of these are:

Through the efforts of dedicated parent/carers, school staff and supportive localbusiness the P&C ran a number of very successful events. These have included: Mother’s Day and Father’sDay stalls, School Discos, WorldTeacher’s Day celebration,abush dance, the car boot sale, BBQs and the TwilightFair.

We workedon building our partnership with the School Board.This was achievedthrough proactive parent SchoolBoard representatives and effective exchange of information;through oral reports and meetings.Ilook forward to seeing this partnership continueto strengthen.

We have continued to provide schoolbankingand book club to all students. In the year past we haveseen the continuationof the second hand uniformshop.

We providedfinancialsupport through a large donation to the schoolfor a number of initiatives. I am very proud of the accomplishmentof the P&C in 2015. However, the P&C is most effective when workingin close partnership with the school staff.I wish to acknowledgethe excellent leadership of the Principal,MrsTravers and the tremendous support provided by Kate Flynnthe ActingDeputy Principal,as well as the exceptionalsupport to the P&Cassociation provided by both the executive staff, the teachers and administrationstaff.

Finally, I wish to thank the P&C executive, our regular meetingattendees and our enthusiastic army of parent volunteers for their time and supportthis past year. Being part of the P&C Associationisa most rewarding undertakingandI’m sure members willcontinue to displaya wonderful ‘community spirit’ in their support of our school.

Thank you and I wish the P&C continued success.
