This committee is one of our largest committees and they are responsible for putting together one of our major fundraising events of the year. This requires a number of volunteers with a range of skills including administration, financial, sponsorship, and operations. It’s a fun committee to work on and a great way to get to know people within the school and the community. There is also a large reliance on volunteers to get make this event a success.
The Grants Committee liaises with, and makes enquiries of government bodies and other organisations who offer grants of money to assist not-for-profit and community organisations such as the P & C. The Grants Committee then prepares and submits applications to these government bodies and other organisations to seek funding grants to assist the P & C with financing projects, events and capital works for the school. Examples of P & C/ school projects that have been assisted by successful grant applications are playground re-development, the school's recycling project and the school's sustainable garden project. The committee is also responsible for working with the school to oversee redevelopment of the playground, act as a voice for parents with new ideas/suggestions for the playground upgrades and assist the school with keeping the playground in top shape by running parent working bees throughout the year.
The Performance committee is made up of a group of parents who assist the school with all sorts of performances. These include the school band and choir but also all school events like the Easter Hat Parade and end of year performances.
Trivia night is one of the favourite social events for DPS parents and staff. The team are responsible for coming up with a theme, organising class artworks, items for our silent auction and the entertainment for the evening and many more behind the scene requirements
Early in the school year we hold a school disco to welcome back and also welcome our new students into the broader school community. Its an event the kids really love. The committee organises the theme for the evening, ticket sales and the entertainment amongst many other behind the scenes requirements.
The annual DPS Activitython is a sports-based fundraiser usually held in the first half of the year. It involves all students participating in a fun activitycircuit around the school, raising money for every lap they complete. Children are encouraged to gather sponsors from family, friends and neighbours who can either sponsor per lap or make a small donation.
The Activitython is a major event on the P&C fundraising calendar. It's a major cooperative effort between the P&C and teaching staff (being the main P&C event held during school time) and contributes significant support to projects like the playground redevelopment.
Every year our Committee relies on help from parents, grandparents, carers and friends to help run the activity stations with teachers, stamp sponsor cards and cheer on the students
