P&C News


Dear Gumdale community, 

Welcome back for the start of term 1, 2017. I hope you have all had a relaxed break away and are ready for another positive year! 

The term started with welcoming new families to our school. A TEA and TISSUE morning tea was hosted by the P&C to welcome the new families. Thank you to volunteers that helped on the morning. It was a great turn out of families. 

It has been a very hot start to the year. P&C contributed to the school, funding for air conditioning units late last year so over the school holidays more classrooms were fitted out. We thank the community for supporting the fundraising events of 2016. Your contribution has all been worthwhile considering the temperatures are at an all-time high and our peeps are staying cool. A big shout out of THANKS to you all!

The uniform shop has had a very busy start to the year. There has been great support from new and current families and the wearing of the Gumdale State School uniform. ALWAYS OUR BEST! Thank you 

Winter uniform order forms have gone home. Please pre order your winter jacket and/or winter pants (fleece or micro) in order to receive them in time for the winter months. Details are in the uniform shop news. 

P&C welcome two new tuckshop conveners Rachelle and Amanda.

Both Rachelle and Amanda have worked in other tuckshops and are on board with smart choice guidelines implemented for 2017. We have a new menu out for term 1. Rachelle and Amanda welcome your feedback on the menu during open hours.

P&C Meeting
TimesOur COMMUNITY MOVIE NIGHT is on Friday February 10. All families and our Gumdale/ Wakerley community are welcome to come along. A flyer has gone home with details of the night. P&C are catering with a sausage sizzle, drinks snacks and glow sticks for purchase. A fun family night! Details in the fundraising news.  

Our next P&C meeting and the first one for 2017 will on Thursday 9 February, 7pm in the Resource Centre.  

Stay cool and sun safe!

Tuckshop news 

Hello, we are your newly appointed tuckshop ladies, Rachelle and Amanda. We are looking forward to providing delicious meals and snacks for Gumdale students. 

We have a new menu and sushi menu this year. These menus can be found pinned to the tuckshop blackboard, on the Gumdale State School website Tuckshop Menu, on the Gumdale State School P&C Facebook page and through our online ordering company Flexischools ( ) 


We are always requiring volunteers. If you have some spare time and would like to give back to your school, we would love to have you. We are currently in the process of starting up a volunteer roster and we are looking for volunteers to work from 30 minutes up to 2 hours or even just to help with service over the counter. So if you think the tuckshop is the place for you then please drop by the tuckshop and have a chat with us.
