Woodvale Primary School P & C Association is a group made up of parents, carers, school principal/deputy principal, and members of the local community. The group exist to raise funds to enhance the educational experience for students of Woodvale Primary School.

The WPS P&C  is looking forward to another fantastic year, and we have lots of exciting events planned. Our subcommittees who are involved in organising the specific events are always looking for volunteers.

New members are always welcome to join our meetings. Come along to our next P & C meeting on Wednesday May 9th: 7pm in the Specialist Area and find out how you can get involved, or check out the P & C notice boards around the school for further information. 




Flexibuzz is a smartphone App for parents to receive information and reminders about what is happening at school. 

Download the "FlexiBuzz" App, search for our school and select your child's class, and school information will be received on your phone!


If you use Facebook, you can join the Facebook group "WPS Parents in the Vale" to stay in touch, ask questions and find out information about school related matters. Click here for the link to join the Facebook group. 


This is the official formal communication from the school. You can subscribe to the newsletter via https://woodvaleps.schoolzineplus.com/subscribe.

To help raise funds for the school, here are a few things we already have planned for 2018.

Information about these and other events will be posted on the P & C notice boards, FlexiBuzz, the school newsletter and information flyers sent home with students.



As well as fundraising for our school, we are also passionate about creating a great school community as well as being involved in the wider community.

Each year we hold a number of minimal profit events aimed at nurturing our school community. This year, these events include:

  • Easter Picnic - 23rd March 2018
  • Mother's Day and Father's Day stalls where students can select and buy a gift for their parent or care giver
  • Colour Run - November 2018
  • Christmas Carols by Candlelight 

Take a look at the P & C notice boards around the school for further information.



Here are a few easy ways to help your P & C which will take no time at all:

Entertainment Book

Buy your entertainment book through the school.

Last year sales of the Entertainment Book raised $1,570.

Woodvale IGA P & C Loyalty Card

On each cash register at Woodvale IGA is a card linked to the WPS P & C's loyalty card. Shoppers can simply ask the prerson serving them to scan the Woodvale Primary School card to that we can receive transaction points. We have recently been presented with a cheque for $1 000 from IGA for last year's loyalty rewards.

School Banking

School Banking is a great fundraiser for our school. Our school receives a Regular Savers Contribution of $5 for every 10 deposits processed per student as well as an Annual Contribution which is based on the number of students who made at least one School Banking deposit in the prior year.

To get involved in the school banking program, click on the School Banking page on the right for more information.

Stationery Labels

We have a fundraising account registered with the stationary label supplier "That's Mine". The P&C receive 25% commission on the value of every order.  So for your next label order, head to www.thatsmine.com.au and enter code 1687 to help us raise those extra funds. 



The WPS P&C Grounds Committe hold a number of Busy Bees throughout the year to support the work of our gardener and to help keep our schoolgrounds looking amazing. We undertake projects such as block paving, clearing the weeds and mulching around the water tank, spreading sand in the sandpits, planting out areas and tidying the garden beds.

For any enquiries please contact Rich on: rmilloy@live.com.au or 0427 829407

Our next Busy Bee will be held on: SUNDAY 25th March 2018

WHAT WILL I BE EXPECTED TO DO? Any way you can help will be MUCH appreciated.There are jobs to suit EVERYONE. You’ll meet other parents and the kids will have an awesome morning whilst taking a lot of pride in seeing what they help to achieve – and all rounded off with a sausage sizzle lunch!

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING? You can just turn up! BUT if you have some gardening gloves and perhaps some basic hand gardening tools (e.g trowel,secateurs) and a bucket then that would be great too.

A big thank you to the Meat Connoisseur at Woodvale Boulevard Shops for donating the sausages for the sausage sizzle and IGA Woodvale for donating the bread buns.
