Facilities: Our first Community Action Day has been planned for 16th of May 2-5pm. The committee discussed the 2020 Accelerated Projects funds, upgrades (air-conditioners works soon to progress, disability access and pathways – development and planning underway, nature play improvements – last year’s fundraising has been targeted to spend on nature play resources, drinking fountains - one installed and one soon to be installed by hall, security – swipe cards for entry and other features, and wifi and network – completed).
After School Sports: We fielded a Kanga Cricket Team this term but unfortunately didn’t have numbers to nominate another team. Basketball has taken off at Clapham Primary with three teams being entered into the competition. Preparation for the Netball and Soccer season (Terms 2 and 3) have been nearly finalised (on hold due to Covid-19 uncertainty). We have ordered another set of netball dresses so both Senior teams will be outfitted this year.
OSHC Advisory Sub-Committee: Happy Haven have communicated Vacation Care program for this holidays. Staff have attended a number of professional development sessions. The After school care and before school care numbers are increasing. On a few days a week after school care is almost at capacity, the school and Happy Haven are negotiating additional spaces for Happy Haven to access in the need for catering for higher numbers.
Carpet, vinyl and pinboard upgrades were completed last year. Happy Haven and OSHC to both contribute to the costs of installation of blinds in the room. Investigation in the future to replace air-conditioners.
Events (Fundraising): Please note this sub-committee has undergone a name change! We would really like more people to volunteer to be a part of this sub-committee as so far we have only had two parents offer their support. More hands make light work. J We had planned an Easter Hot-cross bun lunch special but unfortunately this had to be cancelled. In Term 2 we are proposing a Wine Order, Movie Night and After School Sports Home Game BBQs.
Education and Communication Committee: Yet to meet.
Finance: The 2020 Budget was approved. The school is in a good financial position and in the 2020 budget spending is targeted towards improving resources to support teaching and learning programs and facilities (continual upgrades/improvements) eg the library.
