Each class has a parent (or two) who volunteers to be the Class Representative. We encourage the Class Rep to help organize a couple of social events with class parents e.g. Morning teas, dinners or drinks to help parents get to know each other. This is particularly important if new families come into the class. The Class representative is also a valuable resource for the classroom teacher and will give some assistance in coordinating for any major fundraising events during the year. This is a wonderful way to get involved in the school.
An important role of the SPS P&C is the provision of additional resources to the school to enhance facilities or supplement educational programs. In addition to the annual P&C Levy, a significant portion of these funds come from fundraising events held throughout the year. The P&C Fundraising and Social sub-committee timetable and organise these events on behalf of the P&C. This committee strive to create enjoyable activities and events during the year to enable new and old families involved in the school to participate and raise funds for projects that will benefit the school in the short and long term.
Some examples of recent projects are as follows:

Get involved in the School Banking program
The School Banking program provides children with an opportunity to deposit money into their Commonwealth Bank Youthsaver account at school each week. The program is about how often your child makes deposits, not how much they deposit.
To encourage regular savings behaviour the program offers an exciting Rewards Program. Every deposit earns your child a silver Dollarmites token, and once they’ve collected 10 tokens they can redeem them for a reward.
School Banking is also a great fundraiser for our school. Our school receives $5 when a student makes their first ever School Banking deposit and 5% on every deposit made through the school (to a maximum of $10 per individual deposit).
Getting involved in School Banking is easy!
You can get involved in the School Banking program by opening a Commonwealth Bank Youthsaver account at your local branch or online. All you need to bring is your current identification as well as your child’s birth certificate. If you are an existing Commonwealth Bank customer and have NetBank, you can open an account online.
If your child has an existing Commonwealth Bank Youthsaver account they can start banking straight away. They just need to bring their deposit in every week on School Banking day using their Dollarmites deposit wallet.
School Banking day is Wednesday. Each week you need to bring your deposit book to the undercover area behind the hall.
If you would like to know more about School Banking, please ask for a 2017 School Banking program information pack from the school office or email.
