Our Fundraising Goal
One of our objectives as a P&C Association is to assist the school in providing facilities and equipment.
We do this by requesting a voluntary contribution from each student to ensure the events we do run are for the benefit of the community and enable the students and community become one and have some fun! The $80.00 voluntary contribution is applied to your Term 2 school fees and is paid directly to the office. All our monies raised, less some operational costs, is donated back to the school and used to reach our objectives and to make Glenhaven Public School ‘the only place to be'.
Our Goal for 2018 is: WATCH THIS SPACE
Over the past few years the P&C Association has successfully made invaluable donations to the school which have been made possible from the voluntary contribution paid by families. Examples of these are:
2017 - Concrete Seating adjacent to Oval
We funded the design and installation of large concrete seating adjacent to the back oval which is utilised by the whole school during recess and lunch time and during events held on the oval. The seating is wide enough to sit comfortably on and enjoy a quiet game, a chat with friends or to cheer on fellow students. We also funded the new turfing for the refurbishment of the oval. The oval has been completely stripped, topsoiled and had new turf and a irrigation system installed. Assisting the school in this project has been invaluable to the students having a beautiful oval to play and learn on.
2016 - Outdoor Learning Area
We created an outdoor learning space with the purchase and installation of six outdoor seating/table structures for teachers and your children to enjoy the outdoors whilst learning. These seating structures are towards the back of the school near the basketball court and are used regularly during class time and are always full of fun and laughter during recess and lunch. They have been an invaluable addition to the school. We also purchased and had installed new seating in bus bay which has helped streamline the bus bay process immensely.
2015 - Refurbishment of our Library
This included new resources for the library such as more current fiction to keep our older students interested in reading, reference tools for the children to use and technology that can help improve literacy and information skills, comfortable soft furnishings and rugs to create areas for children to relax while they read, new shelving and display areas to showcase the books and allow easier access for the kids, repainting the walls and ceiling, new chairs for students to use at the tables and a bright new circulation desk to create an orderly flow and organise the borrowing system more effectively.
