Welcome New Parents
A very special warm welcome to the new families at RPS! We hope that term has started well for your children. We wanted to give you an introduction to what we do as a P&C and how we help the community. The P&C is solely run by volunteers who donate their time and expertise. There are many ways parents and guardians can contribute either by volunteering on a Committee or helping out at events. Sometimes an hour is all that is needed to make a truly valuable contribution.
One of the key outputs of the P&C are the fundraising events, such as the school BBQs and the annual trivia night. These events help to strengthen our community environment but more importantly raise funds that provide extra school resources, such as specialised school equipment and new playground facilities. We also support STEM, music, sport, wellbeing and academic programs.
This year we have established a new fundraising committee, with several small groups of parents looking after individual events. If you are be keen to help, please let us know. Generally most of this work can be done from home or work, and includes emails and phone calls to supplies, booking equipment, creating flyers, laminating signs.
Each year we hold a Welcome/ Back to School BBQ. This is a great event when the entire school community comes together to celebrate the beginning of the year. If you have a RSA certificate, we would love you to help in the bar. If bar work is your thing, the P&C will pay for your RSA certificate on the condition that you will help out for a minimum of 3 BBQ events over the next 2 years. We still have lots of positions that need to be filled so jump online now and give us a hand!
Being involved in the P&C and all of the fundraising events is a great way to get involved and be part of our very special community. If you'd like to help or you want to know more, please email Isabel via r or Dimity via
P&C meetings are an excellent opportunity to find out who does what on the P&C executive team and you will also hear from our fundraising committee, uniform shop manager, working bee and sport coordinators. Members of the School Executive including Susan Allen will also attend the meeting and Susan will give her monthly Principal's Report. It's a great way to find out what is going on at school. We meet in the staffroom and access is via 78 Avoca Street. Chocolate and snacks are provided.
We look forward to meeting you and to seeing you soon.
