P&C

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE KIDS
 
Have you ever been to school where Staff, Teachers and the P&C care about your child as much as you do and probably even know them by name?  WE DO. 
 
 
Ever felt the elation of knowing that YOU made a difference in a child's life? Even if it was just in a small way but you did it?  WE DO. 
 
A great way and rewarding opportunity to do this is to become a member or helper of our incredible P&C .
 
Wynnum West State School has been graced with a long history of everyday people creating extraordinary things.  Just like a village, Wynnum West State School exists in a setting of natural beauty and is a community where people seek to understand and help each other. We  seek to achieve excellence in educational outcomes for all students at the school.
 
 
What is a P&C?
 
The P&C (Parents & Citizens Association) is an open door committee that works collaboratively with the school to identify, source and supply modern ‘wish-list’ resources for the students to compliment the quality of the education and support that Wynnum West State School offers.  It is a business model at its core with financial accountabilities and legislation to follow which is why it has key executive positions and the people who fill them. Committee members  agree to take on these responsibilities as guided by the job description in the P & C Constitution 2016. See the links at the side for a copy of our Code of Conduct Volunteers Confidentiality Agreement. 
 
 
In our P&C Committee, we have executive (accountable) roles - President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary.  The P&C is also made up of other parents and community members.   We call them ‘Superstars’.  If you want to find out more about volunteering please click on the link to the side.  Want to be more than a casual volunteer – become a committee member.  
 
 The P&C is an umbrella that oversees multiple sub committees that function in most schools.  Wynnum Wests Sub committees include:  Tuckshop, Uniform Shop, Craft Club, Swim Club, Grant Application Writing and the Fundraising Committee.  Wynnum West is one of the few schools in the area that still runs a Tuckshop and Uniform Shop every day.  The amazing support of the coordinator , volunteers and helpers allows our school community to thrive.

What is the P&C going to ask me to do?
 
Firstly, come to a meeting when you can.  What you do from there is up to you.  There are lots of ways to support the P&C.  We aim to make it fit in with you and your interests. The P&C will put forward what it needs for events to fulfil the "wish list".  Most time slots for volunteering are an hour long (e.g. bbqs), a specific job (selling glow items at a disco) or specific tasks (working bee).  You can offer as much or as little time as suits your family.
 
 
What are the benefits if I join the P&C?
 
There are many reasons why someone joins a committee.  There are lots of ways to fulfil a need within the P&C - be part of a team, contribute ideas, meeting new people and have your opinion heard. The greatest benefit is the message your participation gives your children.  It demonstrates that you care in their education and their school experience.  Its makes your children feel special that you are there.
 
Your child or children see the benefits that your contribution brings to our school.  Our swimming pool, playgrounds, shade covers, donations to the library for the purchase of new books, the gardening clubs new shed, the music program and the recent contribution towards the cost of the schools WiFi upgrade, are all great examples of where our fundraising efforts have been utilised throughout the school.  The P&Cs continual efforts benefit the our students every single day.     
 
We really look forward to meeting you. If you want more information, have an idea or just want to communicate with us, please email us on pandc@wynnwestss.eq.edu.au
