P & C

Purpose

Our school Parents and Citizens (P&C) organisation exists to promote the interests of the school through co-operation between parents, teachers, students and members of the general community. The P&C raises money to assist in the provision of resources, facilities and amenities for the school, and organises events and activities to foster community interest in educational matters.

Activities

The P&C is run solely through the energy and commitment of our parents. In 2019 we have a slip and slide water fun afternoon for families at the end of Week 2 of Term 1. We also have planned school discos, a parents’ social evening, and various fundraisers throughout the year. We support the Fathering Project and our Beacy Dads have organised a dads and kids camp at Rottnest for the first weekend in April. Please let the P&C know if you have ideas for events, or would like to help at already-organised events.

Meetings

Beacy P&C meetings are held in the evenings, twice a term in the staff room.

Please come along in 2019 so you can have an impact on your child’s school amenity and community. The Beacy Parents Facebook page is a good way to stay in touch. Email beacypandc@gmail.com if you have queries.

Parent classroom representatives

Each year one parent from each class volunteers to be a class rep. This involves staying in touch with all the parents in your class and ensuring they are kept up to date with the latest P&C news and activities.

In 2018, the P&C raised $25 000 through the canteen, uniforms, fundraising and voluntary contributions. The P&C spent $13 000 on running community events such as discos. We funded readers for the junior school and have ensured we have money aside for emergencies.

Our major contribution from 2018 will go towards the school’s redevelopment of the bottom oval which includes new soccer and footy goals, as well as new fencing.

How to donate to the P&C

There are several ways you can donate to the P&C. We ask parents for a $50 donation for each child at the beginning of each year. However, parents can choose to give their year’s total support in one larger donation and are free to donate at any time.

We have a dedicated Building Fund Account to receive 100% tax deductible donations.

In order to receive 100% tax deductible status, donations to the P&C must go to a dedicated Building Fund Account.

Our priorities for this fund are: the undercover area, toilet blocks, painting & general maintenance. If you have any questions, contact P&C treasurer on beacypandc@gmail.com

How to donate:

  1. Donate through the early-bird OfficeMax stationary Order.
  2. Donate through the school office.
  3. Donate either the $50/per child or give more, if you wish
