P&C Association

The P&C Association is a statutory organisation given responsibilities by Education Queensland to administer the many voluntary services that are vital to the well-being of schools. The P&C plays a major role in fundraising for the school and contributes a considerable sum to the school each year. It is also responsible for many other important services and projects.

General meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7.00 pm in the school library. All parents are welcome to join the P&C Association and attend meetings. The executive committee is elected during our AGM held in March each year.

For further information about any P&C activity, please contact the president on email address below.

Tuckshop

The school tuckshop is operated by the P&C Association.  We have a paid volunteer and rely on volunteer helpers to open on Wednesdays and Fridays. Menus and price lists are issued during the year and can be found on this website under Facilities, Tuckshop.
The tuckshop has fully implemented the recommendations in the State Government’s “Healthy food and drink supply strategy for Queensland schools”.  We have worked with Nutrition Australia to implement a menu following the "Smart Choice" guidelines.
All ordering is done online via School 24.  Cut off time for orders is 08:30 on Tuckshop days.  Students can purchase ice creams and snacks over the counter.
The tuckshop cannot function without help from parents, grandparents and other caregivers. Please consider becoming a tuckshop volunteer. Being part of this group enables you to meet many people, while making a valuable contribution to our school community.

Dolphins Swim Club

The Norman Park State School and District Swimming Club is a sub committee of the P&C and we welcome swimmers from both Norman Park State School and the wider community. The aim of the club is to encourage swimming confidence and introduce children to the fun of racing in a supportive environment that focuses on participation and personal improvement. The swimming club is a great way for kids to make new friends, keep fit and learn good sportsmanship. Friday nights are club nights in Term 1 and 4, with the pool open at 5:30pm for a 6pm race start.

Music Support Group

The Music Support Group (MSG) is a sub-committee of the P&C Association. The committee aims to provide both financial and practical support for the school’s Instrumental Music Program. Members of MSG organise ticketing, refreshments and fundraising at each instrumental performance event throughout the year.
MSG members are also active in putting together such events as the school musical, Wakakirri and Junior Rock Eisteddfod, as well as assisting the instrumental teachers by seeking grants and fundraising to replace the school's instruments.

Second-hand Uniform Shop

The Norman Park P&C Association holds a second-hand uniform stall on an ‘as needs basis’ for those parents wishing to purchase second-hand uniforms. Times and dates are advertised in the newsletter. Parents are invited to donate good quality second-hand uniform items to the clothing pool.

 

School Banking

 

The P&C Association has volunteers who conduct a banking service each Friday for students who wish to make deposits to Commonwealth Bank accounts. All student banking needs to be placed in the money box outside the school office before school on Friday morning.  New account opening kits are available from the school office. The school earns a commission for every deposit and for every new account opened.

 

Fundraising

 

The P&C Association and its sub-committees have made a strong commitment to the school over many years to provide a variety of resources. This is done through a varied number of events and projects run within the school community and outside in the broader community.

These events, while earning extra dollars for the school, provide many opportunities for families to join together and form life-long friendships.
 

Monies are spent on providing resources such as reading books, library books, mathematics, science, sporting, physical education, computer and playground facilities and swimming pool improvements to name a few. 

 

Communication 

 

The P&C has a dedicated Facebook page that is regularly updated with information on our events or important messages from the school.
We also use "mailchimp" for all our email communication.  Please email us on 0926_pandcpresident@eq.edu.au for a link to join this mailing list.
