Dear Parents & Carers,


Thank you so much to everyone who turned up tonight. It was so heartening to see so many new faces there. Even better that we have filled all the positions required. 

Congratulations to our new president Jodie Willis, vice-presidents Rebecca Byrne and Hayley Spaapen, secretary Wendi Graham, fundraising co-ordinator Jean Byrne, and Tara Mulholland, in the new role of marketing coordinator. 

And to the many others who put their hands up to be involved in the P&C in some way, be it through the fundraising committee or special projects committee, or general business, thank you so much. It made my heart sing to see such enthusiasm for Tuart Hill Primary School. 

Kerri-Anne Westlake is continuing as uniform shop coordinator, Mel Harrison as Treasurer, Nick Mortimer as special projects co-ordinator, and Tanya Woodard will be canteen coordinator, so the President has one less job to worry about. Di Mount-Bryson is school board liaison.

Please don’t hesitate to contact myself or Tanya Woodard (when she’s back from Scotland next week!) if you have any immediate questions. We will try to organise a meeting of the executive committee before the next P&C so we can bring the new team up to speed and ensure I ticked all the right things off!

THANK YOU SO MUCH. You won’t be sorry for volunteering at such a beautiful school — and your kids will be delighted!

Kind regards
Julie Hosking
Former THPS P & C Vice-President

The Tuart Hill Primary School P&C has three main focus areas:

  • Parent engagement
  • Supporting student programs
  • Improving the school environment


The aim of the P&C is:

  • To provide parents and the community with a place to meet with representatives of the school, provide feedback to the school, find out what is going on in the school and provide means to improve and support the school
  • To bring together parents, teachers and interested citizens with the common goal of providing a high standard of primary education for the children of the school. The Association provides a forum where parents and carers can understand more about how the school operates and cooperate to contribute to helping the school achieve its goals
  • To raise much needed extra funds for the school for the benefit of the students
  • To promote the interests of the school by bringing parents, citizens, students and teaching staff into close co-operation and to assist in providing facilities and equipment for the school.
  • The P&C activities all aim to support these goals through a range of activities: fundraising, social events, providing a forum for parents to participate in developing the school and enhancing their child’s experience of school, offering support to teaching staff regarding the educational, safety and wellbeing of our children and providing much needed resources to the school


The next P&C meeting will be held on Wednesday, 27 March 2019 at 5.45pm.
