Welcome back to a new school year! And for those new families that are joining us, a very big double welcome!
Our Parents and Citizens’ Association (P&C) is a group of parents and carers who are committed to supporting our children and their school through a wide range of engaging programs and fun social activities.
We’re keen to welcome a diverse group of members. Many hands make light work and the more parent/carers who contribute, the more fun it is.
Please connect with us via our Facebook Group and ensure you fill out the P&C Class List form (shown later in this email) so you receive the fortnightly P&C Newsletters and other relevant information.
TEACHERS THANK YOU HAMPERS
At the end of 2020, the SCPS Parent Community contributed to purchasing some beautiful Christmas Hampers for the teaching and support staff of our school. In such a hard year, it was our way of saying thank you, and ensuring no staff member was missed in the gesture. From learning support, to admin, to sports and arts staff, there are so many amazing people that help our SCPS Learners achieve their best, and we are so grateful for their time and experience.
NEXT P&C MEETING
The first P&C Meeting for 2021 will be on Wednesday 10th February at 7pm. We will be hosting this meeting on Zoom, the details will be emailed to you via your 2020 Class Parent Rep, as well as published via a Facebook event in the P&C Group.
If you have any agenda items, please submit them by Monday 8th February.
ALL WELCOME! Hope to see you there.
2021 P&C ROLES
P&C Executive Team
Although we have a number of Exec Members willing to stay on this year, we are also after one or two more wonderful people to join us in leading the P&C this year. We’re a friendly bunch, and we love new faces and ideas, so please consider joining the team! If you would like more information on the roles available, please check out the P&C Website:
We also have a number of sub committees that run events or have interest in certain areas. If you would like to lead or become involved in a sub committee please ensure you volunteer on the online class lists that are coming out soon. More details are here:
Class Parents Reps
Each year we ask that two or more people in each class volunteer as Class Parent Reps for that class. The role of the Class Parent Rep is to distribute information from the P&C to the other class parents, as well as lead any fundraising events. We also encourage these parents where possible to attend the P&C meetings regularly, although this is not compulsory. It’s a great way to meet other parents in your class/year and get involved in our wonderful school community.
You can register your interest in these roles via the Class List Form, below, or also feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to privacy reasons, each year we must recollect everyone’s information from scratch for our P&C Class Lists. If you have filled out one of these forms on the past, you MUST fill out this years if you would like to be on the Class List.
When you enter your details in this Class List, the details will only be made available to the P&C Executive Committee, and your allocated Class Parent Rep, who will distribute to the other parents in your class only. These lists are the basis for all P&C communications throughout the year, as well as providing a great resource for your children’s friends and classmates for party or playdate information.
If you would like to Volunteer for a committee or event but would NOT like your details in the Class List, please fill out this form, but email email@example.com and we will ensure your details are only kept for these volunteering opportunities.
PLEASE FILL OUT THIS FORM BY SUNDAY 21st FEBRUARY 2021.
The Uniform Shop is open and running, with all second hand and new items available for sale. All orders that are received during the week will be delivered to your childs classroom each Friday.
All new items can be purchased via our sparkly new website:
For all enquiries and secondhand purchases, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Until next time,
