Fundraising & Community

The P&C holds several fundraising & community engagement activities throughout the year.

Events are organised and run by volunteers and our fundraising events help raise much needed funds required by the P&C to maintain the various services as well as making regular donations to the school. If we don’t have enough volunteers then we can’t run these events! We need everyone to help step up and pitch in. Reach out if you you help provide support. 

For more information about P&C events and activities or to offer your time, please email our office – office@wesspandc.org

You can make a difference – even if you don’t have the time! 

  • Donation of goods and services – Got a business that can donate something for one of our fundraising events? 
  • Sponsorship of our events and activities  – we are happy to offer a package of publicity and other opportunities in return for sponsorship of our events. Want to find out more?
  • Donate your earnings from the Container for Exchange program at Tomra in West End. Just add our code C10044213 when you have finished adding depositing your containers.
    Please email office@wesspandc.org

Donations Appeal:

Queensland state schools are some of the most underfunded state schools in the country because the Queensland Government only provides 69.26% of the needs-based funding to state schools. WESS is especially underfunded given our large student cohort and increasing enrolment numbers throughout the year.

The P&C helps fill this funding gap with much needed in school resources, programs and facilities. We also generously provide financial assistance to students in need, ie school supplies, uniforms, tuckshop vouchers, school camps, extracurricular activities and more. We need your help! 

Parents and carers of the school can also contribute through the P&C Voluntary Donations Drive.

How to Donate:

Community Engagement

Community Engagement is about getting to know people and helping families to be part of the WESS community. The WESS Community is the heart of the P&C. The role of Community Engagement is to ensure families feel welcomed and are involved with the events and activities organised by the P&C and the school. At the WESS P&C, we want to include and embrace our diverse community. 

Some of the activities we organise are: 

Parent & Language Rep Program – currently consisting of 50+ parent reps across all grade levels. Representatives help get our information out to the school community, organise meet ups for families every term outside school time so families can meet and get to know each other and help welcome new families to WESS.

Community Chit Chat – Every 1st Wednesday in term time at the Tuckshop, from 7:30am

Contact engagement@wesspandc.org if you want to learn more about our community engagement activities.
