P & C 2019 Mid Year Message

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

As we are halfway through the year your P&C Executive team thought they would give a quick update of some of the major fund allocations, your P&C has approved.

  • New laptops for Stage 1 which now means all stages have the technology they need.
  • Air conditioning for the new office and administration block.
  • Air conditioning the uniform shop
  • Building variations for the new canteen to ensure it accommodates all our current facilities.
  • Prefect Blazers and Representative Shirts
  • Diaries for Year 6
  • New laptops for the canteen and uniform shop

Traffic management project update - As you know traffic around Excelsior at drop off and pick up is very busy and often quite dangerous. Your P&C has been working with the Hills Council and local MP’s, to see if anything can be done to improve traffic flow around the school. Unfortunately, most changes are based on formulas and numbers rather than common sense. In the May minutes you will see all the issues we have raised and suggested, what’s happened so far and what is still under discussion.

However, we also need to do out bit and there are currently quite a few illegal practices happening, two of the main ones which either the Police or Council Rangers can fine you for are;

  1. Crossing double white lines and doing a right hand turn either   into or out of the kiss and drop area
  2. Parking too close to a junction, you need to be 10 metres back from the intersecting road.

This is a long term project and the P&C will continue liaising with the Council and update parents with any good news. You can find the road rules at www.rms.nsw.gov.au

We would really love to see new faces at our June meeting, so you can see what we do and you can have your say. The school has a high percentage of students from households, where English is not the first language, however the P&C does not have fair representation of the different cultures and backgrounds and we certainly want them catered for.  It doesn’t matter if English is not your first language, everyone is really friendly and welcoming, and we would love your input.

We also have a new email should you have any queries, thoughts, concerns or suggestions excelsiorpandc@gmail.com

Hopefully we will see you June 25th 7.15pm in the after-school care building.

Regards

Your P&C Executive Team
