​Message from the Outgoing President

On behalf of the outgoing Executive team we would like to congratulate everyone who has contributed to another successful year. In acknowledgment of this, we would like to take this opportunity to recognise the huge contribution made by the members of the Fundraising Committee and associated working parties. It goes without saying that the Fundraising Committee continues to produce outstanding events with outstanding funds raised. You give tirelessly of your time and it’s appreciated by all of us.

Some of the achievements for 2016 that have been made possible by the very successful fundraising effort include: the installation of air-conditioning units, wireless upgrade, library resources, grounds work to new and old ovals, community support programs and more recently improvements to the Tuckshop.

In addition to this, the P&C supported the school when hosting ToM, Art Show, Music Show and Graduation. We would like to acknowledge YMCA for their help in many of these events. Your partnership with our school is appreciated.

Rachelle and Amanda have been appointed as the new Tuckshop convenors in 2017. The girls have brought about positive changes in management and there have been a number of menu changes to reflect the recommendations by Smart Choice Guidelines. Rachelle and Amanda have been busy implementing the changes to reflect home-baking style and the feedback has been very positive. A heartfelt thank you to both of you for your dedication and enthusiasm. It has been a great start to the year. Also, thank you to the volunteers who continue to offer time to help out. Your contribution is very important and we couldn’t operate efficiently without your help.

The considerable hard work and effort of the Uniform Working Party in 2015 came to bear fruit at the beginning of 2016 which was the transition year for the Gumdale State School new uniform. Changing uniforms is a big decision and required much effort and collaboration from a small group of volunteers. We want to thank everyone for their hard work then, because the roll out of the new uniform was without hassle and was incredibly well received.

Our thanks must go to the school administration, who from the very beginning supported the changes and supported us in wanting to ensure a strict uniform policy. We believe that the uniform represents pride and respect and the current appearance of our students in their uniforms is setting new standards.

Thank you Tanya for the commitment you’ve shown to the Uniform Shop and to the volunteers that helped Tanya during the busy times, we couldn't have operated without your help. Thank you.

We would like to thank Mr. Savil and all Gumdale State School staff. We established a very strong partnership from the beginning and your support for us has been tremendous. We have welcomed your leadership and clear direction. 

We welcome the incoming Executives for 2017. With a positive focus for the future the outgoing Executives wish you the very best. 

On a personal note I wish to thank everyone for their support during my Presidency. To the outgoing Executives, thank you for your time and commitment over the past few years. Volunteering our time in these roles gives us a sense of purpose and achievement. I have enjoyed my time working beside you. Our future planning has been very positive.
