Parents and Citizens
Welcome to the Oak Flats Public School Parents and Citizens (P&C) Association Website.
At Oak Flats Public School, we have an active and functioning P&C Association. Here is a brief overview of what we do:
- Canteen: The OFPS P&C operate the school canteen and employ a canteen manager who is responsible for the profitable management and operation of the school canteen according to the policies and procedures of the OFPS P&C.
- Catering & Chaperoning School Events: Our P&C is heavily involved in catering and chaperoning school events such as our popular school discos held once per term, athletics carnival, mothers' day stall, fathers' day stall and various morning teas.
- Fundraising: We have a dedicated fundraising committee that meets once a month. Our mission statement is "To develop, organise and administer fund-raising activities in order to support the School Plans. A strong partnership support a better future."
One of the OFPS P&C Association's primary goals is to raise money to help support our school. At the end of each year, the OFPS P&C Association Fundraising Committee agrees on a draft fundraising plan for the following year.
With input from our school community, the Fundraising Committee is able to decide on and implement fundraising strategies and work in partnership with the OFPS Principal in deciding how the money will be spent.
In preceding years, our fundraising teams have been able to contribute monies towards the purchase and installation of the digital school news board, the extension of the undercover walkways throughout the school, towards numeracy and literacy aids for classrooms and the purchase of hats for each kindergarten child as they commence their journey of school learning.
One of the most rewarding aspects of being a part of the Fundraising Committee, and being involved in the various fundraising events; is the opportunity to meet new people and socialise at all stages of planning and implementation. The team works hard putting events together however we also have a lot of fun! The personal rewards from volunteering your time, skills and effort can be as simple as seeing the smiling faces and excitement of students at various fundraising events.
The Fundraising Committee is always looking for new ideas and new helpers, so please get involved if you can. There are a variety of activities which change from year to year thanks to the input of the parent community, whilst others have become a tradition at Oak Flats Public School. The School Disco, Mothers' Day and Fathers' Day Stalls are examples.
