Meetings

P & C Meetings at Kapinara Primary School are held twice a term on a Tuesday evening, dates are available on the school website calendar. They are also available in the P & C Newsletter.

Meetings are open to all parents and teachers and take place in the staff room from 7pm. Attending offers parents a great opportunity to gain a better understanding of, and to participate in the running of their children’s school.

New members are welcome at anytime and can pay their membership fee $1.

At Kapinara we are fortunate to have supportive parents that contribute to the P&C via voluntary contributions, with a huge payment rate of almost 93%

Also the fantastic parents of Kapinara continued to provide assistance to the school in terms of time and energy through volunteering efforts, which made events possible and also raised funds for the school, including:

  • Canteen
  • Uniform shop
  • School banking
  • Sundowner

COMMUNITY EVENTS AND/ SERVICES

The P & C Purpose is not all about fundraising. I am constantly being reminded though the actions of parents that they are proud to part of Kapinara and continue to support events to make Kapinara not only a great school but a great community. Some events run by class representatives and parents, not just P & C members include:

  • Athletics carnival
  • Sundowner
  • Arts Night
  • Social dinners and BBQ for class groups
  • Coffee catch-ups
  • Gardening for the school
  • Disco
  • Quiz night
  • Class camping trips
