Ellison Public School Parents & Citizens Association
About our P&C
We promote the interests of the school by bringing parents, citizens, students and teaching staff into close co-operation and by raising funds to provide facilities and equipment for the school.
Thank You- 2019 Wrap Up
The P&C would like to thank all our amazing Ellison families and community that has supported our fundraising efforts this year.
In 2019 we contributed $34,000 for the purchase of new interactive smartboards for our classrooms. This was made possible following the successful movie night we held in Term 3, as well as the Colour Explosion Walkathon we held in 2018. ALL classrooms will head into 2020 having these new projectors and screens.
Other contributions the P&C have made this year include the purchase of an additional set of resources for the Learning Support Team; support of our School’s entry into Operation Art; the Welcome BBQ held in Term 1; and a donation to purchase gifts for the upcoming Presentation Day.
In addition to our major Movie Night fundraiser this year, our other fundraising activities have included:
- Easter Raffle and Cake Stall
- State Election Day BBQ
- Mother’s Day and Father’s Day stalls
- Open Day Cake Stall
- BBQ and Canteen sales at the Athletics Carnival
- Drink sales at the Cross Country
- 3 Discos, and
- Canteen sales during Term 1 and Term 4
Thank you also to the businesses that supported our events when we asked for sponsorship, and also to the volunteers who have helped us run these events as we couldn’t do it without you.
