ARE YOU TIME POOR BUT STILL WANT TO HELP?

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

Entertainment Book

You can buy your entertainment book through the school. Go to www.entbook.com.au/85963p to order online. For more information or for the process to order offline, please contact Kay Bhudia on 0401 433 29.

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

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. 

 

BUSY BEE

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.

Keep an eye out for when our next Busy Bee will be held.  

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.
