A VULY TRAMPOLINE WAS WON AT THE COORPAROO CARNIVAL!

Our friends at Vuly have put up their ultimate trampoline for one lucky raffle winner at the Coorparoo Carnival on 15 October 2017. Their Thunder Summer XL is their biggest springless model available, and the whole prize is worth over $3,000 – including delivery to the winner and a free Shade Cover! Vuly are based in Brisbane, and their Thunder Summer not only has a fully enclosed safety net, but the winner will also have full warranty coverage and half-price replacement parts even when the warranty is finished. This raffle prize is one that’ll be providing your family with fun for years to come.

There’s no better way to unwind after a long school day than bouncing in your backyard. Before getting started on that homework, hopping on the trampoline gets oxygen-rich blood to your brain – letting you concentrate for longer and work at your best!

The Coorparoo State School P&C aims to:
  • Provide a forum for positive discussion of educational issues, school policies, long-term planning and budgeting.
  • Welcome everyone’s views, opinions, input and suggestions and aim to make decisions on behalf of the school community, representing a wide cross-section of our families.
  • Reorganise fundraising events such as our biennial festival (fete), spell-a-thons, etc., which help the school to provide resources above and beyond those provided by Education Queensland.
  • Organise events and functions to bring our teaching staff in closer contact with our parent body, to encourage better communication and understanding of each other’s roles.
  • Represent all interest groups and specialty areas within the school. Groups and services sponsored by the P&C include the Swimming Club and Music Committee.

General Meetings of the P&C are held on the third Wednesday of each month at 7.00 pm, in the Library. We encourage you to attend these meetings, both to learn more about your school, and to have input to the decision-making process. The Annual General Meeting is held on the third Wednesday of March each year. The President’s Annual Report and the Annual Financial Report are presented at this meeting. Elections also take place for positions on the Executive Committee for the following year.
