Parktone Social Group

What is the Parktone Social Group?

 

The Parktone Social Group (formally known as the Parktone Community Group) is a sub-committee of the School Council and is a team of parents whose goals are to build and strengthen the relationships within the Parktone Primary School community. We recognise, and represent, the views of the broader school community to our Principal, Mr Danson and the School Council.

 

Who can join the Parents Social Group?

 

All parents, grandparents, guardians and friends of Parktone Primary School students are able to join the Parktone Social Group. It is a great opportunity to meet fellow parents, carers and grandparents and contribute to the enhancement of your child’s experiences at Parktone Primary School. The level of participation is up to you. You may choose to assist in a hands-on capacity (organising events) or you may just support us by sharing your enthusiasm for the activities and events or during meetings.

 

What events?

 

The Parktone Social Group will run the following events during 2014:

 

  • Afternoon Teas (All year)
  • Stalls for the children for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Christmas (All year)
  • Family Games and Picnic Night (Term 1)
  • Easter Raffle (Term 1)
  • Children’s Disco (Term 2)
  • Year Level Dinner Dance (Term 2)
  • Trivia Night / Dinner Dance (Term 3)
  • Christmas Carols Night (Term 4)

 

What about fundraising?

 

The Parktone Fundraising Group works in conjunction with all other School Council Sub-committees to raise funds for the school as a whole. All funds raised by the Parktone Fundraising Group are wholly given over to the school to fully, or partially, fund classroom tools, school events, school maintenance and building / garden projects and sports equipment that is needed. These fundraising events will include a Bunnings Sausage Sizzle and raffles throughout the year.

 

It’s easy to join the Parktone Social Group!

 

Simply attend a meeting. The meetings are held every first Tuesday at 7pm at Parktone PS. The meetings will last no longer than 1 hour and is your chance to participate. It’s a relaxed atmosphere, and if you need to, you can bring your children with you.
