P&C Day WA
Today is P&C Day WA, as well as the 100th anniversary of the P&C’s overarching body, WACSSO.
Although the P&C at Curtin PS is only a few years old, they have achieved amazing things by fundraising and lobbying government. Without the P&C we would not have achieved;
painting to the front façade of the school,
- the Nature Playground,
- two new multi-courts,
- our Harmony Garden, and most recently
- a $185,000 grant for landscaping our inner quadrangles into outdoor learning spaces.
Considering the small size of our school, our P&C has organised some amazing fundraising events such as the Mother’s Day flowers, sausage sizzles, discos and cake stalls, to name a few.
Their next fundraiser, later on in the term, will be a book stall so if you have any books you want to get rid of please send them along to school. It would be wonderful to also get books in languages other than English. Further details will come out soon.
All in all, our P&C is quite outstanding, and if you haven’t already joined, I urge you to keep an eye out for our next meeting and come along. Whilst fund raising events can be a lot of work, they are also a lot of FUN.
Year 5/6 Camp
From all accounts, the year 5/6 camp to Dwellingup this week was incredible. I think all students and staff will sleep well tonight. I’m sure parents will hear all about it tonight, and I hope the rest of the school will hear more next week.
Keyboard for Music
An exciting addition to the instruments in the Music Room is a set of 8 digital keyboards. These will be used to help develop the children’s understanding of the elements of music and allow for exploration of sounds and musical creativity.
New Interactive TVs
As of today, all classes have new interactive TVs in their rooms. These TVs are wonderful teaching tools and given that there are now so many great digital curriculum materials available, I think they will be getting a lot of use.
National Tree Planting Day
City of South Perth is running a national tree day event at the Elderfield wetlands on Sunday August 1st.
