P and F News

Thank-you to the St Pius P and F for a fantastic 2017. All parents and carers of children enrolled at St Pius are automatically members of the Association. This year, we have been very blessed to have so many parents and carers involved in many different ways. Without this involvement we would not have been able to achieve what we have this year.
 
The purpose of the P and F is to work alongside the School to promote and create a positive sense of community, provide school social opportunities and assist the school to purchase the “extras”. Reflecting on the achievements below, this purpose has been met.
 
2017 Key Achievements:
Social/Community Building (free or low-cost events)
Welcome back BBQ
Stall at Queensland Day Celebrations organised by Banyo and Districts Community Group
Mother’s Day Disco and gift stall
Father’s Day BBQ and gift stall
End of year picnic on the school oval
 
Fundraising
Entertainment Books
70th Anniversary Tea Towels
Holt Bolt Fun Run
Trivia Night 

 

Supported the school to:
  • Air-conditioning installed in the 4/5/6 classrooms. Due to a terrific fundraising effort in 2017, the P and F have been able to commit for the prep air-conditioning installation to be brought forward and completed over summer holidays ready for the start of 2018.
  • $5000 towards the purchase of musical instruments so the school can expand the band music program
  • Contribution towards the purchase bench seating for MPH
  • Purchase new BBQ to cater for the growing school community
  • Donations to PE, music and art
  • Financial contribution for buses for activities outside of the school (eg. sport and music festival)
  • Successful grant application for the Telstra Kids fund to supply a class set of digital exploration kits
There are still lots of things on the wish list for 2018. We hope to see you at a meeting or two next year.
