Parents & Citizens Association

Parents & Citizens Association

The Burrendah Primary Parents & Citizens Association Inc. (P&C) is an organisation of the school community open to parents/caregivers, staff and interested members of the community. For up-to-date information on P&C news and events or to get involved, we can be contacted via Facebook -  https://www.facebook.com/BurrendahPandC/ or email - burrendahpc@gmail.com.

 

The P&C encourages community and parental involvement in a variety of school interests, including managing the canteen, the music support group and fundraising. Fundraising activities include the Scholastic Book club, the preloved uniform shop and various events held throughout the year. Parent volunteers are vital to the success of our P&C activities, and all funds raised go to the school.

 

The P&C has provided substantial funding over the years, regularly supporting the gold card book vouchers, the school honour board, purchasing additional library books and improving resources for our school. This is only possible with the active participation of the P&C and our parent volunteers.

 

We are confident that your children will have a fantastic time at Burrendah Primary and hope you can get involved with us to enhance their school experience.

 

How do I join the P&C?

P&C meetings are held in the School Hall at 7.00pm in Week 3 and Week 7 of each term. Simply come along! It only costs $1 to join for the whole year.  We extend a warm welcome to you to attend these meetings.   

 

Canteen

The P&C also manages the school canteen. It is open for lunches on Wednesdays and the menu follows the Government’s healthy eating guidelines. It is very popular with children. Orders need to be placed in person at the canteen on Tuesday morning BEFORE 8.45am. Both cash and EFTPOS are accepted.  

   

Preloved Uniform Shop

The Shop is open by appointment – please text the Committee Members phone number to arrange a suitable time (details available on the P&C Board in the undercroft area or via the contacts above). Uniform donations are very welcome and appreciated. The Preloved Uniform Shop is located in the Cygnet Block Wet Area.

 

Containers For Change

The Burrendah Primary P&C is eager to help ‘make a change’ while raising funds for our school at the same time. Containers for Change is a new recycling scheme with a focus on reducing container litter, increasing recycling efforts, and getting everyone involved in keeping our state beautiful. Through the scheme, every eligible container dropped off at a refund point earns 10c. The scheme was recently launched in WA and the P&C has signed up. This means you can donate your refund to the P&C to help earn funds for the school.

Here’s how you can help
1. Collect your eligible containers
2. Drop them off at a refund point (see the website for locations or put them in the school’s collection bin outside Room 26)
3. Give the P&C’s refund ID ‘C10291452’
4. The P&C earns 10c for every eligible container you drop off!

The drive-through drop off is super easy at ‘Recycle to Change WA’ located at Unit 1/2 3 Moonie Street in Willetton. 

This is a great way to get our children involved in the important activity of recycling while supporting their school.
