The Roseworth P&C Association is a group that is open to all parents and affiliated citizens of our school. We consist of various people from diverse backgrounds who all share one thing in common; we want to give a little of our time to help Roseworth Primary School be the best that it can be – for our children. We know how important the relationship between the school and the community is in ensuring that our children receive the best possible care. In short, this collaboration is essential in order to enable the children to reach their full potential.
Our P & C members help out in many ways, from the P&C Executive and Committee Members who are involved on a daily basis within the school, to parents who work full time or have very young children and still find the time to help out. To all of these people we remain eternally grateful – without your dedication we would not be able to raise the vital funds which we need to provide the school with much needed resources.
What Do We Do?
Possibly more than you realise! The P&C runs the School Canteen, the Uniform Shop, and organises many fundraising activities to raise vital money to supplement Government funding. By doing this we raise the quality and quantity of resources that are available in order to aid the education of our children – did you know, for example, that it is because of the P & C that Roseworth Primary School has air-conditioning in all of our classrooms and offices? Our school is one of the few schools fully air-conditioned on construction and this is because past P&C committees have worked incredible hard to air-condition our previous school buildings. The government recognized the efforts by the P&C to fund raise for air-conditioning and added the cost of a fully air-conditioned school to our building budget.
Our beautiful school buildings and grounds can also be linked back to the work done by the P&C, representing the parent body on all of the committees that were required to build our new school. The uniform was developed by the P&C, our library resources – the list goes on and on! The school is able to purchase items such as iPads and computers because the P & C are continually looking for ways to provide the school with extra funds so that we can improve the school for our students. The P&C has also made valuable contributions to the addition of shade around the school and in providing such a cheap school uniform and sports uniforms. The P&C has fitted out all of the sporting teams that represent our school at carnivals, provided the school choir with their performance uniform and donate a school cap to every new student who enrolls at our school.
Funds are raised through a variety of activities: Discos, Lapathons, Sausage Sizzles, Easter and Christmas Raffles, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day Raffles and in their support of the canteen as a catering service and in the provision of student lunches and recess snacks.
Can You help?
We are always looking for new members and volunteers to help out. Every little effort can really make a big difference. Volunteering is also an amazing way to get networking and make new friends if you are new to the school community as well as to simply become more involved in the day to day running of our fantastic school.
How Do I Get Involved?
We meet on Thursday afternoon in weeks three and eight of each term at 2:00 pm in the staff room. Why not come along? You’ll get to find out what’s going on in the school, decide if you would like to do anything to help, as well as have a coffee and even get to make friends with likeminded people. Everyone is welcome and it would be great to see as many parents as possible show their support for the school by assisting the P&C in any way.
