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,

Simone Hinton
President
Mudgee Public School P&C

Fundraising is a key component for the P&C. During 2017 the P&C raised more than $20,000.00 in an effort to raise funds for new air conditioners for our classrooms. This effort will continue for 2018 as we strive to fit all classrooms with adequate heating/cooling.


P&C Events

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. Simply send us an email pandc@mudgeepublic.com.au and let us know you're interested. Your name can then be added to the list of available volunteers.

Fundraising

Our P&C Fundraising Group always work hard towards obtaining funds to assist many different areas of our school.  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, fitness fundraiser and crazy camel to name few. Our goal this year is to raise enough funds to continue replacing classroom air conditioners. Air conditioners were installed in all classrooms around 12-14 years ago by the P&C at that time. We are now seeing these air conditioners reach the end of their lives and with the hot weather we experienced at the beginning of the year 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 our healthy schools canteen policy, 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.



Canteen

We are developing our "cook from scratch" initiative further in line with the Healthy Schools Canteen Policy. The policy is targets 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

Our Winter menu for Term 3 looks great. You can access the menu on line. Click here for a copy of the menu

A lot of work has been done to align our menu with the Healthy Foods Canteen Policy that all public schools must now follow. All foods are categorised into “everyday” and “occasional” food choices. We have plenty of healthy lunch options including hamburgers, pasta, grilled chicken wraps & salad bowls. There is a weekly soup special so check the Canteen board each week and watch the facebook page for this announcement. We also have yoghurt & fruit cups, ham & cheese jaffles, and banana bread, to name a few, as part of our winter snack menu.

Thanks to Kim and our team of helpers in the Canteen. Though their commitment we are able to offer a great canteen service at our school. However, our Canteen is very busy.  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 the P&C via email to pandc@mudgeepublic.com.au
