Each class has a parent (or two) who volunteers to be the Class Representative. We encourage the Class Rep to help organize a couple of social events with class parents e.g. Morning teas, dinners or drinks to help parents get to know each other. This is particularly important if new families come into the class. The Class representative is also a valuable resource for the classroom teacher and will give some assistance in coordinating for any major fundraising events during the year. This is a wonderful way to get involved in the school.
An important role of the SPS P&C is the provision of additional resources to the school to enhance facilities or supplement educational programs. In addition to the annual P&C Levy, a significant portion of these funds come from fundraising events held throughout the year.

This committee strive to create enjoyable activities and events during the year to enable new and old families involved in the school to participate and raise funds for projects that will benefit the school in the short and long term.
