P&C Association

The Bertram Primary School P&C provides a range of services & donations to Bertram Primary School, thanks to the valuable contribution of all our members & volunteers. We provide a CANTEEN & UNIFORM SHOP service for Bertram Primary School, allowing us to keep costs down for families.  We also did the work involved to get a Crossing Guard for the school and FUNDRAISE to help provide the students with the best environment for learning possible.

In order to continue to provide these services & donations to the students of Bertram Primary School we need YOUR HELP, YOUR SUPPORT & YOUR IDEAS. This involves: 

  • $1.00 per year to become a Financial Member. Membership forms are available to fill out at meetings. If you can’t make a meeting there are forms and envelopes in the front office. Fill out your form, place it in an envelope with your $1.00 and hand it in to the office. 
  • Attendance at any of the meetings you can make. These are twice a Term (morning and evening). Kids are welcome. 
  • Contributing to our fundraising efforts in whatever capacity you are able to. There is NO PRESSURE – you can pick and choose when & how much you would like to contribute, but remember things can’t happen if we don’t have people willing to take on bigger tasks. 
  • Encouraging friends to join to help increase ideas & spread the load. 

Involvement can range from being at a meeting to taking on one of our Office Bearer Roles or from helping out with a fundraising event to taking on the running of a fundraising event. Every little bit counts, so if you have some time to spare we would love to have you on board. The more people we have involved the more we can spread the load between members & contribute toward the school. Your contributions are going towards a great cause – your children!! Payment comes in the form of tea, coffee, Tim Tams & chocolates provided at meetings & the satisfaction you get making a difference to the lives of all the children at Bertram Primary School.
