Our Wonderful P&C
Welcome back parents and kids. On behalf of the canteen staﬀ and myself, I would like to wish you all a very happy and prosperous year. This year, we have a couple of new addi ons to our menu. A copy of the new revised menu is available at the canteen upon request and is printed on pages 2 and 3 of this publica on. Please note, any price changes in the menu will be eﬀec ve, as of week 3.
Our P&C commi ee is very ably sup‐ ported by our students and families. Some parents help the P&C organise events while the majority of our fam‐ ilies a end and support P&C events
I encourage parents/carers to come visit our canteen and see what is cooking. We welcome any sugges ons you may have. Also, volun‐ teers are very much appreciated, so if you have any spare me avail‐ able and would like to join our team, please contact me on 0424184733. Parents, please remember to use proper lunch bags for lunch orders. Envelopes are not prac cal at all. You may purchase lunch bags from the canteen at a cost of $2.00 for a pack of 24 bags. Your coopera on is very much appreciated. I look forward to seeing you soon!
Their amazing eﬀorts in 2011 and 2012 enabled the school to begin the process of installing air‐condi oning in classrooms. The P&C’s fundraising and conse‐ quent contribu ons to our school, freed money in the school budget and allowed us to complete the air‐ condi oning process during the Christmas holidays. Homebush Public now boasts air‐ condi oning in every classroom!
