Welcome to Mudgee Public School P&C

Mudgee Public School P&C are a group of focused volunteers assisting our school and raising funds to provide resources and equipment for all our children and staff.

One of the things that makes Mudgee Public School such a great place is our active, friendly school community. We want to make sure every family (especially new ones) has the opportunity to get involved. Volunteering at school is a great way to meet new people and your kids get a kick out of seeing you, or any other special person at school.

We have hundreds of families attending Mudgee Public School and many are new to the school this year. We would be extremely grateful if every family could nominate to do “just one thing”.

A calendar of events is available here and our volunteer form is available by clicking on the button below. You can register your availability on this form specific to the dates and events you are interested in. Please fill out this form and tick one box (or more if you wish) and enter your contact details. A P&C representative will then be in touch so you can assist with any P&C run event as it approaches. A copy of this form will also go home with the newsletter. Please return any hard copy forms to your class teacher.

Thank you in anticipation of your valuable help.

Yours Sincerely,

Sacha Etherington
President
Mudgee Public School P&C


Latest News

We are now in week 3 of Term 1 and moving toward Easter. Hard to know where the time goes! Infants will have their Easter Hat Parade 11.45am Friday 7th April immediately after the PBL assembly at 10.30. 7th April is also the last day of term 1! The P&C will run a coffee & hot cross bun stall at the PBL and again at the East Hat Parade with all monies raised going toward new resources for the school. Bring your gold coins and enjoy a coffee at the assembly or while you watch the parade.

This years focus for fundraising is air conditioning. Air conditioners supplied supplied by the P&C about 10-12 years ago are now reaching the end of their lives leaving students and teachers in hot classrooms, far from an ideal learning environment. Mr Kerr is making a priory list per classroom so the P&C can collate some sort of budget required. Funds raised this year will predominantly go toward replacing air conditioners on a priority basis.

Parent/teacher interviews are scheduled for Wednesday 29th March. A note will come home with time slots available. This is an opportunity for you to see where your child is at and what is happening in the class room. Put this date in your diary and more info will be sent home.

We are always looking for more volunteers for as much time as you are able to offer. Even a day here and there is a big help. We are in the process of finalising the P&C event calendar for 2017. If you would like to help out please keep an eye our for our volunteer form that will be sent home with the newsletter next week Tuesday 21/02. The form is also available here on line - click the button below.


P&C Events

The P&C are currently working on their events calendar for 2017. There are some great ideas in the making such as a fitness fundraiser, trivia night and our usual coffee stalls and cake baking. If you are able to help out at all throughout the year we would love to hear from you. Volunteering for one event does not mean you have to volunteer for everything. We'd like to ask that each family volunteer for "just one thing" and we can share the load. A copy of the calendar for events involving the P&C is available here.


Meetings

Our P & C Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month in the School Residence at 2pm. Everyone is welcome and we would love to see fresh faces and hear new ideas.

Fundraising

Our P&C Fundraising Group has been working hard towards obtaining funds to assist many different areas of our school.  Some of these include supporting excursions, gardens and scool resources such as iPads.  We appreciate all your support in our fundraising to help contribute to our school.



Canteen

We have an amazing and very busy canteen here at the school.  To keep up the great service to our children we would love some more volunteers, so if you have any spare time even for an hour,  your assistance would be much appreciated. Please contact Kim Stubbs our Canteen Coordinator on 6372 1095 or 0427 722 669 between 9am and 2pm Monday to Friday.

2016 saw us reduce the number of items in the canteen which contained preservative s and move to a "cook from scratch" approach. This was very successful and our menu listed home cooked foods such as spaghetti bolognese, potato bake, nachos, soup and more. To maintain this and ad more items cooked form scratch we need volunteers to cook. Commitment would be one morning on a fortnightly or monthly basis during term time. Please contact the P&C with your interest and availability pandc@mudgeepublic.com.au


Uniform Shop

Mudgee Public P&C have a New & Used Uniform Shop in the old canteen near the Primary Hall.  The uniform shop is open every Thursday from 2.45 - 3.45. Any donations are appreciated and can be dropped into the blue bin at the front office. For enquiries phone Dakota on 0432298731.  

January 2017 saw our uniform shop open during the school holidays and sales went through the roof. To compliment this we introduced an Eftpos facility which had not been available previously. We are hoping during Term 1 to open an online shop for our school uniforms as well as open during other holiday periods. This will help with orders where parents are not able to get to the school when the uniform shop is open. Order forms will be available here and a link to the online shop will also be available here.
