P&C MEETING – Wednesday 21 November

The first meeting for 2019 will be held on Wednesday 13 February from 7pm in the Library.  Parking is available in the staff car park and the lane way (off Old Cleveland Road).P&C meetings are a great way to meet other parents and carers and school staff.  Hope to see you there!


The P&C is looking for someone (or multiple people) to help with fundraising for the P&C. We had Nicole Wilson in the role this year (Thanks Nicole!) and we are really needing someone to assist and hand over to for 2019. This role enables funds to be raised for CSS and also brings our school community together so we can enjoy events such as the Trivia Night held in 2018.

With fundraising events, we will assist you find other people within the school community to assist organising, planning and running these events. More hands make light work!

This involves:

• Helping organise Trivia Night

• Fun Run

• Any ideas on fundraising for 2019

• We might not be doing the Spellathon in 2019 so we can trial other options. So the $25,000 we usually make needs to raised through other events.

• Funds raised this year have gone towards employing our School Community Liaison Officer, supporting school science week, sponsoring Year 6 students to attend graduation and purchasing two Anzac Bears for the classroom.

• Mind you if you are keen on being part of a team to organise Spellathon to keep it going we would love to hear from you too.

If you would be interested in this role please email or sclo or Linda Hanson. You can also discuss the requirements of the role with the current Fundraising VP Nicole Wilson (
