Parent Reps

The P&C warmly welcomes you and your family to 2019 at Kapinara, and would like to invite you to support the P&C in taking on a role of Parent Representative for your child’s classIt doesn’t require a huge amount of time, and it’s a great way of getting to know teachers and other parents in your year group.

  1. Admin Rep for your class (1x per class): Help recruit volunteers from your class group to help in the Canteen and Cake stalls, Keep your class contact lists updated (provided at start of year); share information between your class and the teacher; 
  2. Social Rep (1 or 2x per year group): Plan a few social events to keep your year group connected and engaged. 

Guidance will be provided for first timers! If you’d like further information or have questions, feel free to contact Kate Marquis on ksrowlands@hotmail.com or 0437 005 173, otherwise put your name on the sign-up sheets which can be found outside your class rooms

Canteen News

The canteen is looking fabulous with new windows and new flooring! It has made a huge improvement to the canteen. The P&C has reviewed the operation of the canteen to ensure it is as efficient and accessible as possible and the online ordering system has been a great addition. In comparing the menu with several other local public primary schools, we have adjusted prices very slightly to reflect costs and what other schools are providing. The P&C has also decided that the canteen will not operate if volunteers have not been confirmed for the following week. All volunteer spots are requested to be filled by 9am Friday morning, so that canteen can operate knowing it has support and the ability to feed all the children on time. There will be a ‘Feedback and Suggestions box’ placed outside the canteen so that you can provide direct feedback to the P&C about these changes. These suggestions can then be discussed at the following meeting for consideration. The canteen is open to suggestions but needs the certainty of volunteers signing up to work effectively. Thank you in advance for your support. Hope to see you in the canteen soon to admire all the new alterations!
