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.
Mudgee Public School P&C
We have reached the end of Term 1 and the holidays have begun.
The term 1 PBL assembly was well attended and thanks must go to Kirsty and Rosie new volunteers with the P&C for running the coffee machine.
Easter Hat parade followed later that morning and as always it was a great success. Many proud children wore their masterpieces and much fun was had by all. The P&C Hot Cross buns were a success and in doing so we supported McDonald's bakery initiative to donate $1 form every 6 pack of hot cross buns to Mudgee Hospital. What a great effort. Thanks to the school community for supporting this.
Our uniform shop is going on line. A solution has been found to set up the on line shop on our school website. Work will commence to get this underway so we will announce once this is finalised. Watch this space...
Lastly, thanks to all for supporting the P&C and the school with their fundraising initiatives and school events. These things are not possible without the help of volunteers and volunteering is certainly a tiring and thankless job. So thank you again and enjoy your holidays.
School returns Wednesday 26th April. Don't forget students return wearing winter school uniform. Watch the Mudgee Public Uniform Facebook page for opening times during the holidays.
Term 1 has seen the P&C coordinate the coffee station for the PBL assembly and the hot cross buns for the Eater Hat Parade. Term 2 will be just as busy with Athletics carnivals, mothers day stall and trivia night to name a few. 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.
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.
Next P & C Meeting - Monday 8th May
Some dates are not 2nd Monday of the month due to holidays. A list of meeting dates are listed below for your convenience.

Our P&C Fundraising Group always works hard towards obtaining funds to assist many different areas of our school. The Fundraising Team this year led by our Fundraising Co-ordinator Rochelle McDonald has a number of events scheduled for 2017. All volunteers are welcome as many hands make light work. If you are interested in volunteering you can complete our volunteer form by clicking the button at the top of the page "I want to volunteer".
Some of these fundraising events include canteens at sporting carnivals, trivia night (which will be our major fundraiser for 2017), fitness fundraiser and crazy camel to name few. Our goal this year is to raise enough funds to start replacing classroom air conditioners. Air conditioners were installed in all classrooms around 10-12 years ago by the P&C at that time. We are now seeing these air conditioners reaching the end of their lives and with the hot weather we have been experiencing it is vital we have conditions in our classrooms appropriate for effective learning. As always the P&C will continue to support other initiatives such as the Kitchen Garden Program and school groups such as school spectacular and the Healthy Harold Van to name a few. We appreciate all your support in our fundraising to help make our school a great place for our children.
A Canteen meeting was held 14th March and the new policy and Winter menu were the main topics discussed. We would like to develop our "cook from scratch" initiative further in line with the new Healthy School Canteens Policy. The new policy is targeting the issue of childhood obesity. Public school canteens in NSW are now required to meet the NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy outlined by NSW Health and follow the Nutrition in Schools policy.
Information on this new policy can be found at healthy-kids.com.au
Please complete the canteen survey to help us plan for 2017 and beyond. Your feedback is important to us. We’d like to know if you are able to help cook in the Canteen and what items you would like to see on the menu. Please take the time to complete this survey and return this form to your class teacher as soon as possible. Alternatively you can access the survey here.
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.
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. A solution has been found to place an on line shop on our school website. Work will commence to get this up and running and an announcement will be made once finalised. 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.
