Wanneroo Primary School (WPS) enjoys a strong parent and community involvement, which is facilitated through an active and productive group of parents representing the WPS Parents and Citizens Association (P&C). The P & C Association promotes the interests of the school through the areas below.
Your P & C pays for equipment and programs that otherwise would not be covered in the school’s budget. This includes significant funds for the purchase of playground equipment, special educational programs (Mathletics) and many other resources. As parents, the P&C members recognise that these additional programs and resources enhance your child’s early learning outcomes and will contribute to their academic and social accomplishments – both in the short and long term ooperation between parents, teachers, students and members of the general community
Your WPS P&C hosts events to both fundraise and to contribute to our local community. These include Quiz Nights, Student Disco’s, Movie Nights and welcoming new parents to name but a few.
In 2016, the WPS P&C donated approximately $26,000.00 to the school. Funds donated contributed towards positive behaviour launch and rewards, cyber safety presentations, science incursions and the new nature playground that is gradually taking shape. Using natural resources it aims to create a hands on and challenging playscape to learn, create and have fun.
The WPS P&C always welcomes new members. General meetings are held each term on every second Wednesday of the month at 7.30pm in the staffroom. Parents are invited to come along and join as an active volunteer (50¢ membership fee) – or just attend the open meetings to hear what is happening in your school.
In addition to contributions made directly to the school each year, the P&C asks parents to contribute towards a voluntary fund. This amount is set at the AGM every year and allows the WPS P&C to support large projects such as the grounds development, library and information technology purchases.
