P&C News – Issue 1, Term 1 2017

WELCOME to all Students and Families for 2017


Welcome to all families attending Aubin Grove Primary School in 2017. The purpose of the P&C is to support the school, the students and their families. Joining the P&C is a great opportunity to make a contribution to the education of your child, keep informed of school matters and meet new people who are also part of our school community.

Did you know that the P&C are responsible for:
– The operation of the Snack Shack canteen
– Coordinating and running school banking
– The sale and supply of school bags, library bags and swimming bags
– Coordination of donations from Commonwealth Bank, Aussie Farmers Direct and Bubbler Deals
– The Easter raffle, disco’s and the Christmas raffle
– Coordinating the sale and supply of Entertainment Books
– Organising and running stalls for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day
– Assisting in arranging parent information sessions
– Organising the Kindy Morning Tea for our new Kindy families
– Assisting with the collection of payments for various fundraisers and
– The sale of second hand uniforms


The target of the P&C this year is to increase our membership. The P&C is open to all parents and carers of students at the school and we always welcome new and old members. Please note that you must be over 18 years and have paid an annual subscription (currently $1). Membership forms can be found here or by following the link below


Please place your completed form and $1 fee in an envelope marked with ‘P&C Membership’ into the P&C mailbox at the back of the School Office.


P&C Meetings are held on a Tuesday evening in week 2 and week 8 of the school term. The next P&C meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 21st March and will be held in the staff room. Please note that you do not have to attend meetings to be a P&C member.

We look forward to meeting you all.


STEMS (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)

Each year the fundraising team receives vouchers from Parent Direct and Chalk. These are companies the school uses for fundraising. When parents purchase toys from their catalogues the school receives a percentage of that purchase in the form of vouchers. The P&C Executive Committee has voted to donate the vouchers from 2016 to the STEMS program. These vouchers will be used to purchase robotics and coding resources that every child in the school will eventually have access to.

Hand Sanitiser

The P&C has recently purchased hand sanitiser for every classroom in the school.



All families should have received their Easter raffle tickets. There are 20 tickets per sheet at 50c each. These need to be returned by Thursday 30th March.
If you do not have tickets or require more tickets these are available from the school office or you can print them yourself here

We are kindly requesting donations for the Easter Raffle. We are looking for clear cellophane, ribbons, Easter stickers or decorations, baskets and of course chocolate! All donations must be delivered to the school office by Friday 24th March. All donations are greatly appreciated.
