P & C Events

The events below are listed in the Dunsborough P&C Term Calendars that are available on this website.

SCHOOL FETE: Held every second year, this is a great community event, our last Fete in 2015 raised over $35 000 for the school!! Each class is responsible for holding a major stall on the day with parents organising the stall and roster.

EASTER BIG BREAKFAST: is held every year before school on the last day of Term 1. We sell a variety of yummy treats for breakfast. Lots of help is needed in the canteen preparing and serving from 7am. The Library also holds an Easter Raffle to raise funds for the Library (this is VERY popular with students).

CHILDREN’S ART EXHIBITION: Every second year (alternating with FETE) the P&C assists the art specialist (Karen Seaman) in displaying artwork by every child in the school at our Children’s Art Exhibition. All art work is mounted for display and any assistance with art classes is greatly appreciated by Mrs Seaman.

LIBRARY BOOK FAIR: Every 2nd year(alternating with the fete) the P&C assists the Library to hold its bi-annual Book Fair. Parents are encouraged to purchase books for their children and also to donate books to the Library.  Help is always appreciated in the Library for book covering, please see Wendy Harrison or Julie Purdy in the Library. Bookweek is conducted by The Childrens Book Council of Australia. Further information on Bookweek can be obtained from http://cbca.org.au/bookweek.htm.

WALK TO SCHOOL DAYS: We wish to encourage families to be active and healthy and each term the P&C hold a Walk to School Day. Walk to School Day consists of three Walking School Busses collecting children from predefined bus stops on predetermined routes and transporting them to School where a healthy “before school snack” is provided. Please refer to Walk to School Days under the School Canteen section for additional information on the “before school snack”.

The Term 2 Walk to School day is done as part of National Walk to School Safely Day. Further information can be obtained from http://www.walk.com.au including information of promotional materials to be sent to schools.

CYCLE TO SCHOOL DAY: We wish to encourage children to be active and healthy and at the start of each year the P&C hold a Cycle to School Day. This is part of Bikewest’s Cycle Instead Bikeweek. A healthy “before school snack” is provided for all participants. It is parents responsibility to ensure that Children cycle to school safely. Please refer to Cycle to School Day under the School Canteen section for additional information on the “before school snack”.

BOOKLISTS: P&C volunteers distribute ‘Personal Items List’ orders to parents immediately prior to the start of Term 1. This is an opportunity to promote the work of the P&C the activities that it undertakes. Please let us know if you are able to assist.
