P & C

The Florey Primary School P&C association has been running since the school opened in 1989. We have a strong and active team consisting of local community members, parents from the primary school and parents from the preschool.  We meet regularly to discuss ways in which we can contribute to and improve the school and local community culture.

Our Community

Florey Primary School P&C considers our community to be:

  • families connected with our school
  • teachers and staff of our school
  • anyone within the priority enrolment area (the suburbs of Florey, Scullin, Page and part of Belconnen)

Our Vision

To help our students achieve the best they can by working with the school and with the community.

Our Goals

  • Develop rapport and trust with students, teachers and staff
  • Help create a positive learning and community culture inside the school
  • Assist teachers and staff to achieve their learning objectives
  • Be community leaders within our community area
  • Fund-raise and contribute financially to the improvement of the school resources and infrastructure
  • To have a good time and promote that being involved is fun

Our Action Plan

  • Our association is involved with the development of the children in our community and our community in general
  • We work with surrounding P&C associations and schools to provide the children in our community with a continuously supportive schooling experience from preschool to college
  • We engage with and contribute to the ACT P&C association council, the parent body of ACT P&Cs, for state-wide development
  • As the key community service in our area, we are actively building local community relationships

Our Projects

We have a number of active projects that support our goals.  At present we have a major fund-raising project to refurbish the basketball court with an improved surface.  Other on-going projects include subsidising whole-of-school events and other minor ad-hoc school and community assistance.

Our past projects have been to raise funds for new home readers, sports equipment, furniture, air conditioning and computing equipment.

Our Services

In addition to our projects, we also run a number of services throughout the school week.

Canteen

The canteen provides a healthy food alternative for students.  See the canteen web page for the menu and other details.

Uniform Shop

The uniform shop is run each Wednesday during the term in the hall from 8:30am-9:30am.  The shop sells both new and second-hand clothing. Orders outside of this time are possible through forms available from the front office.

Scholastic Book Club

The book club orders are taken twice a term via forms provided to students.

School Banking

School banking is collected each term on Thursday mornings at 9:30am in every class unit.  If you have questions, comments or wish to register, contact the banking team at floreyschoolbanking@gmail.com.
