P and F News 25 November 2016

Hello GCC Community!

Well, what a year it has been! 2016 has definitely been the best yet for the P and F Association, and we hope it has been the same for all of you.

We look forward to seeing you all at the Primary Christmas Concerts next Monday and Tuesday evenings. The P and F Association has organised some delicious food and drink options for the concerts. This year the P and F Association is proud to be donating a rainbow LED candle to each primary student. These candles will be given out to students upon arrival to their respective concerts. Candles will also be available for purchase for $2.50 each from the P and F Association stall at the concerts.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to the P and F executive Sue Schafer, Patti McNulty and Kerri-Ann Ross for your invaluable hard work and support over the last year, along with committee members, college management, staff and volunteers. Without all of you, the P and F Association would not be what it is today. Another big thank you to Stephanie McCredie and Margaret Johnson, our 2016 Funfest Coordinators, for your tireless efforts in organising what was a massive and amazing day.

On another note, it is with great sadness that I must advise I am not in a position to continue on in my role as President of the P and F Association next year. This decision has not been made lightly, and although I have enjoyed my year leading a great group of volunteers, I feel that it is time for me to hand over the reigns to their next leader. If you are interested in joining with a wonderfully dedicated group of parents and friends to enrich the lives of our children and the GCC community in general, please contact me. The role of president is not without its challenges, but I have found it to also be extremely rewarding, and a fantastic opportunity to work alongside other parents, college management and staff for the benefit of all. I am grateful to be able to continue attending monthly P and F meetings next year, support the next President and help out where I can.
The next P and F meeting will be held on Tuesday 7th February 2017 at 7pm in the college library. As usual, all are welcome.

The AGM will be held on Tuesday 7th March at 6:30pm, followed by the monthly meeting at 7pm.

Again, a big thank you to all who have been involved with the P and F over the last year and if I don’t have the opportunity to speak with you before the end of term – have a happy and blessed Christmas and I will see you in the New Year!

Until 2017, stay safe and god bless.

Kate Adam, P and F President
