Moolap Community Group
What is Moolap Community Group?
The Moolap Community Group is a team of parent/carer volunteers of children attending the school, along with the school Principal and selected Staff, who meet once a month to oversee fundraising opportunities and facilitate change within the school, to enhance the experiences and learning for our children.
Who Can Be Involved?
Anyone can be involved, whether it be grandparents, parents or carers of children enrolled at Moolap Primary School.
What Does the Group Do?
We co-ordinate fundraising and collaborate with School Council on how to spend funds raised, along with organising events for the children at the school. The group also organises the canteen and helps out on other projects around the school as required.
How Do I Become Involved?
You can ‘request’ to join the Moolap Community Group page on Facebook which will then be approved by Administration (please make sure you answer the questions). This is a closed group which is only available to Moolap families. You can also check the noticeboard in the front of the school yard for updates on what is happening for the Term. Attendance at the monthly meetings helps you to be informed and have input on what happens at the school. If you are unable to attend meetings but still wish to have your say, you can place a note in our suggestion box in the Office foyer, which will be addressed at the next available meeting. There are updates in our weekly newsletter also, so please find the source of communication that best suits you to stay informed. If you have any queries regarding the group, please ask at the Office for assistance.
How Much Involvement Do I Need To Commit To?
You can commit an hour of your time once a year, or you can be active every day in the group. The choice is up to you and any help is most welcome. There are rosters for certain events which you may make yourself available for, or you can take work home to do, if it is applicable at certain times of the year (e.g. Wrapping of gifts or Stapling of Raffle Books etc).
What Are The Plans for 2019?
So far, the group has organised the fabulous Colour Run, and have a few fundraisers in their early planning stages for this year. As we progress through the year there will be notification regarding these. The Mother’s Day and Father’s Day stalls and of course the Christmas Raffle will be a part of these activities throughout the year.
How Can I Get More Information?
Our next meeting is at 12.30pm on Monday 6th May, 2019 in the Staffroom. If you are available to attend, this is a great way to become informed, have your say and get involved in your school community, as well as meet some new parents! Also, staying up to date via social media through the Facebook page is a huge help. Any further queries can be directed via the Office.
Thanks for taking the time to consider how you can be involved in supporting your child’s education, and we look forward to meeting all of you over the coming months!!!
