Welcome to OGPS P&C!
The OGPS P&C Association is made up of dedicated parents, carers and teachers and is open to everyone in the school community. It exists to bring parents, citizens, students and staff together to promote the interests of the school, to raise funds for facilities and equipment and to promote the welfare of students.
P&C updates are included in the school newsletter each fortnight which is available on this website, and can also be found on the OGPS P&C Facebook.
For all enquiries, the P&C can be contacted at email@example.com.
Each year the P&C runs a number of fundraisers for the school. We have ambitious targets and need the support of the whole community to run events and raise money that we can use to support our kids.
See the OGPS P&C Facebook for the latest fliers and details of upcoming events.
OGPS P&C welcomes sponsors. For details of how to sponsor us, and for details of the school's Sponsorship Policy, please write to the Assistant Vice President - Fundraising at firstname.lastname@example.org
The P&C elects an Executive Committee who coordinate the events and operations of the P&C throughout the year.
The P&C Executive Committee can be contacted at email@example.com.
OGPS P&C meetings are held twice a term, at 7pm in the school library. Dates are published in the school newsletter.
All parents are welcome to attend.
Everyone in the school community is welcome to join the P&C and attend meetings. There is a $2 joining fee and this can be paid at P&C meetings or left in an envelope containing your name in the Treasurer's Box in the school office. Once paid, members are able to vote at the following meeting and throughout the year.
Annual General Meeting
Each year in March, the OGPS P&C holds its Annual General Meeting (AGM), in line with the P&C Constitution and By-laws (available through the Secretary). At the AGM, members of the P&C vote in office bearers to run the P&C for the year ahead. The P&C audited accounts are presented and the P&C membership fee is also decided. It is currently $2 to join. You can join on the night.
The AGM takes around 30 minutes and is followed by a general meeting of the P&C.
