Planning Ahead

 

 

The Roberts McCubbin PFA is an elected group of parents who volunteer to provide opportunities for families of our school to come together, to forge a strong connection between families and school, and to help build the sense of community in our school.

We hold social and/or fundraising events throughout the year, assist in communicating what may be happening at school, provide support for the teachers in a range of tasks, and encourage all parents to participate in school activities and special events.

These PFA events, teacher support activities and special school events are a wonderful opportunity for parents to get to know other parents in the school community, and to be involved with your child’s school and education. The fundraising activities contribute funds and resources to the school to improve the educational and social outcomes for the children.

 

 

 

Our most regular and common activities:                     

School Family Picnic

Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day Stalls

Women’s Night

Trivia Night

Father’s Day Breakfast

Craft Group – parents are invited to join our band of creative, crafty and friendly parents – “don’t sew, can’t knit” - don’t panic, all skill levels are welcome and often a new skill is learnt or you can simply turn up for a friendly chat.

 

Helping Hands

The Helping Hands is a service that provides help in the form of lunches and dinners to families at Roberts McCubbin Primary School who are experiencing difficult circumstances. Often family and friends help out but sometimes that is not always possible. What many may not realise is that these difficult circumstances may be that; a family member is in hospital, the family may be coping with a major illness, there may be a major change in family circumstances, death in the family or bedbound family member, there may be no support from extended family, the arrival of a new baby, or even moving house - you do not have justify your need. If you need or know of a family that needs assistance please contact Kate or Allison who are the helping hands co-ordinators. They will organise someone on their list of helpers to provide a helping hand, these helpers do not know who it is they are giving a helping hand to. Please do not hesitate to ask - as there is no need for you or other families at our school to struggle when we have a supportive community of parents willing to lend a hand. Please understand, all requests are treated with the strictest confidentiality.

 

If you need a helping hand please contact;                         
Narelle McGeehan  Mob 0408 972 051 or narellemcgeenhan@yahoo.com.au
