Dear Parents and Carers
The IHC P&F, as we are commonly and affectionately known, is a representative group of the families involved with Immaculate Heart College, and our main goal is to raise money and fund projects that bring joy, and enrich the educational experiences of the children (our children) of IHC.
Meet our 2021 Executive Committee:
President, Collette Campbell (mother of 4 children in our school)
Vice President, Katie Van Heek (mother of 1 child in our school)
Treasurer, Lisa Forbes (mother of 1 child in our school)
Secretary, Carmen Jones (mother of 1 child in our school)
Fundraising Co-ordinator, Heather Schulz (mother of 3 children within our school)
All members are welcome to attend meetings, form sub-committees for our individual projects, and generally help around the school community to make a wonderful place for our little (and not so little) people.
Each year, all the positions of the Executive Committee are declared open, and all parents and friends of IHC (new AND old!) are greatly encouraged to nominate for positions within the Committee. Our association is ONLY possible with the help of volunteers, and we urge you to consider accepting a position on the committee, and volunteering your time to assist us in the works we endeavour to run for the school and the kids.
Just some of the projects the P&F undertake…
The Canteen @ IHC – our school canteen is available to children, staff and visitors on Wednesdays and Fridays during term. The P&F are solely responsible for the running of the canteen, and we greatly rely on volunteers to help our Canteen Manager Mrs Di Whittaker, provide the wonderful service we all value.
School Banking – Mrs Julie Burgers, Mrs Letka Carbone
Scholastic Book Club – Mrs Jane Zillessen
In addition to these core projects, we fundraise throughout the year, with different events such as Easter Raffle, Mothers Day Stall, Movie Nights, Fathers Day Workshops, to assist with our contributions to making the school a great place for the kids. Some of our most recent purchases for the school have been a to provide new popup gazebos for each of our sporting factions (valued at more then $8,000), allocation of $500 per year for a “Wishlist” of items to help enhance learning experiences and paying almost $5,000 to get more concrete paths installed. This year has been affected by COVID-19 but with the help and support from all parents and friends, we still make a big difference within our school to provide more for the children.
