Celebrating #NSWPandCDay 6 March 2019 – a day for school communities to officially recognise and celebrate the contribution made by their P&C Association.
According to the NSW P&C Federation "the efforts of NSW P&Cs now raise over $54 million each year. This figure doesn’t even count the voluntary hours donated by caring and committed parents and community members."
What we do | Following are just a few examples of our many SPPS P&C activities during 2018:
• Held various fundraisers and won grants to fund equipment purchases, upgrades and other activities. In particular, we won a State Government ‘Community Building Partnership’ grant of $23,670 to fund the installation of a large shade structure.
• Contributed funding for: kitchen garden curriculum resources; water refill station; school band; PSSA sports transport & resources; and much more...
• Held working bees; provided volunteers for ethics classes; catered for various school events; and helped to increase the profile of the school and grow enrolments through local community events.
• Engaged with the RMS, Local Public Health Unit, the EPA and SMC regarding the Westconnex project to improve communication, co-operation, safety and amenity for the school.
THANK YOU to all of our amazing volunteers, past and present, who help to make our school a better place to learn & grow.
Volunteers build resilient communities | Every 3 years, the United Nations Volunteers produces the 'State of the World's Volunteerism Report' (SWVR). The 2018 SWVR report, named 'The thread that binds', states that volunteers contribute to making their communities more resilient. "local volunteerism provides avenues for collective action to reinforce strengths and resources from within communities. Although local volunteering reﬂects diverse forms of expression, social action is at its core"
