School Council Committee
This School Council Committee is responsible for all maintenance and improvements to all buildings, grounds and furniture and this is entrusted to the Facilities sub-committee. As Wantirna Primary School is such a small school we value our sense of community and our school council committee has a large involvement in school decisions. Each committee is made up of the principal, several staff members and lots of enthusiastic parents.
The Finance Committee is responsible for the budget and the financial management of the school. Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month.
The Education Committee oversees areas of curriculum and all educational activities. Meetings are held the second Monday of each month.
The Promotions committee is in charge of promoting the school and looking at new ways of bringing people to the school. Meetings are held on the first Monday of each month.
Buildings & Grounds Committee
The Buildings & Grounds committee looks into how to improve the grounds of the school and how to maintain our wonderful buildings. Meetings are held on the first Monday of each month.
Parent & Friends
Welcome to the Wantirna Primary School Parents and Friends Network.
The Parents and Friends Network each year organises the fundraising events for the school. We are a group of parents that promote the community spirit of the school. Fundraising is an essential part of the running of the school and the PFN prides itself in working tirelessly raising funds for so many worthwhile projects. The primary aim of the PFN is to make all families feel they have a part to play in the school, and a contribution in helping to make their child’s years in the school a positive time in their life. New parents are actively encouraged to join the Committee every year. In order that the PFN committee be truly represented, a minimum of two representatives are sought per class at the time of the Annual General Meeting in March.
If you can join our committee please contact the school office on 9801 – 1938 or just come along to our meetings. All Welcome.
A Word From Our Parents
I remain pleasantly surprised with our child’s growth and enthusiasm about school – thank you for helping to provide such a strong foundation, building confidence for the children to make their own decisions about the present and the future (and step out of the comfort zone).
