Swanbourne Primary School P&C
SPS P&C group is parent run. Within the auspice of the P&C there are several focus areas listed below. We invite and encourage all parents to become involved in any way they can. This provides and excellent opportunity to meet other parents and children with the school and ensure that each family feel part of the community of Swanbourne Primary School.
Class Room Representatives
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 the ‘Run for Fun’ September Event e.g. organizing a class roster. This is a wonderful way to get involved in the school
Fundraising and Social
P&C Fundraising at the school has a very important role in generating the income to support additional initiatives (i.e. Edu-dance, school play ground equipment, shading). Several functions and events are organized each year including bi-annual children disco, ‘Run for Fun’, Welcome BBQ, & movie night.
SPS is very fortunate to have Healthy Food Canteen run on Monday and Friday.
Uniform shop is supported through SPS P&C and is on Monday weekly through school term.

Other substantial committees are:
