WELCOME TO THE P&C Blog

Featured

The P&C introduced the blog in 2013 and interest has steadily grown. You can join up as a follower, link us into your facebook page or sign up for email alerts when we put in something new.

The purpose of the blog is to provide information to the parents about P&C activities and general information about school activities. If you think you have something interesting to add or experiences you think would be helpful to other parents, you are welcome to make a contribution – you don’t have to be an expert – just have a go.

With the help of parents, over 2013 and 2014, we raised enough money to fund electronic whiteboards throughout the school, got the canteen started one day per week, started a parent volunteer group, and instigated parent class room reps, we moved the uniform shop and engaged in various activities aimed at raising funds and building a feeling of school community.

This year hopes to be an equally exciting year. We hope parents will continue to get involved and you can do this by volunteering for activities

– You can join the parent volunteer group by emailing lathlainfundraising@gmail.com;

– Volunteer to help out the school canteen by contacting lathlaincanteen@gmail.com;

– Join one of the P&C committee’s, or just attend P&C meetings for your own information.

– Become a  class room parent representative to help communicate P&C activities to parents by contacting Ange Tulk.

Your comments and suggestions about the blog, potential P&C activities or area you think the P&C could focus some attention are welcome. You can make a comment through this blog or attend the meetings held twice a term on a Wednesday.  All meeting dates are in the P&C page

Don’t forget: Mothers day stall this Thursday and Friday

The mothers day stall is always a lovely opportunity to see what your children think you would like……..Having helped out on the stall before, I have to say it is adorable to watch the children decide how to spend their money – would mum prefer a $2 smelly soap or a $5 comb? Although the presents may not always be Gold Standard quality – the pride in the kids faces that they get to choose (without parental encouragement), the concentration that goes into working out their money, and the collaboration between siblings to get the right presents, makes this more than just a P&C fundraiser. Its a lovely example of them getting to try out making good decisions on their own, and in the end that is what every Mum really want for mothers day….
