The Preschool operates as an independent, non-profit, community Preschool service. To operate a successful community based Preschool we need the active involvement of parents. There are two key ways that parents can support the Preschool:
The Management Committee consists of approximately 10 parents, two of whom must be members of the Social Committee. The role of this committee includes:
This committee consists entirely of volunteers from the parents of enrolled children. All parents are eligible to join the Management Committee and we ask that you consider contributing your time, skills and efforts in one of the following positions:
Elected office bearers and committee members maintain these positions until the AGM the following year. Please note that prior experience on committees is not necessary. To assist new Committee Members a "training course" on management responsibilities will be held following the AGM. The position of Treasurer needs preferably to be filled by a parent with an accounting or finance background.
Management Committee meetings are held monthly during term.
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) will normally be held on the last Monday or Tuesday in February.
This committee organises fundraising events that assist in the purchase and maintenance of equipment and the general running of the Preschool. It is elected at the Annual General Meeting in February. The Social & Fundraising Committee operates as a sub-committee of the Management Committee but cannot exist without the support and patronage of the parent body.
It consists of:
The Social & Fundraising Committee meets through the year, the frequency of meetings depending on fundraising events and activities. Parents are welcome to attend committee meetings. A member of the Social & Fundraising Committee also attends meetings of the General Management Committee.
We hope you will consider some involvement with the Social & Fundraising Committee, either by becoming a committee member or by volunteering to help out at specific events.
Some of the key events that have been run in past years include Family Fun Nights, Bunnings BBQs, Mother’s Day Cake Stall, Fundraising Dinners, Art Shows, Paint-a-Plate Fundraisers and selling Entertainment Books.
