There are so many ways to be involved, big and small.
You can join the committee and have your say on the types of events that will be run, and how the P&C funds will be spent, and establishment of school policy and management.
You can help out at an event, like the Colour Run, disco or the Mother’s Day stall (maybe even run the event if you’re keen!) You don’t have to be a P&C member, just register your interest and come along. 😊
Help your child to fundraise, or just share our community events, like photo day and raffles, on social media with your friends. It all adds up!
Both the Primary and Secondary canteens are always in need of volunteers to help with our growing customer base. No experience is needed as our friendly staff are also available to guide you and help with any questions you may have and Woodcrest State College Canteens is an approved voluntary organisation for Centrelink.
You can volunteer one day, one hour, or once a year. Any time you can offer is always appreciated.
Some of the activities available are, but not limited to:
💛 Sticking labels on lunch bags
💚 Baking our in-house snacks
🖤 Packing lunch bags
💚Cooking/preparing food orders
🖤Serving students and staff
Both canteens are always in need of student volunteers to help with handing out items during both first and second breaks. This is a great opportunity for any student to gain some on the job training, help their school community and add a Certificate of Appreciation to their CV for the future.
All students that volunteer receive a small voucher that they can use at the time or save up to use all at once. Students who attend 15 times or more will receive a certificate.
If you or your student would like to find out more about this opportunity, please ask them to see our friendly staff in their sub-school canteen.
Woodcrest State College P&C believe in offering students a pathway to their future by offering school based traineeships. If you know a student who may be interested in these opportunities please ask them to enquire with the schools pathways liaison or the retail manager in the secondary canteen.
Recent research has shown the vital ingredient for a student’s engagement and learning is parental participation. Being involved in the education process is one of the best expressions of support you can give your child. It has the greatest impact on children’s engagement with schooling and educational success.
Being part of the P&C committee gives you an opportunity to participate in decision-making about allocating funds to best assist the school and students.
Get involved and become well informed about your child’s education. Their benefit will be rewarding to you. Did we mention it’s fun! 😀
We meet twice a term for a General Meeting that you can join either online or in person.
We run a number of events through the year including:
- 🎁 Mothers and Fathers Day stalls
- 🌈 Colour run
- 🕺🏾 Discos
- 🍕 Red food days
- 📷 Family photo day
- 💰 5c Challenge
P&C Executive Committee
Each year all the executive committee positions are vacated giving new people the opportunity to nominate for the positions. If you are interested in a position, you can talk to any of the current executive and find out what it’s like. The executive committee is voted in at the AGM.
