P&C funding school programs
The Berrigan Public School P&C Committee has been very busy, and have assisted in improving opportunities for a number of the students.
Funds raised by the committee will help send Allan Gardiner to Sydney for the State Athletics Carnival.
The P&C are also funding the Kindergarten Orientation program.
Their funds will pay for a relief teacher, so Kindergarten teacher Mrs Arnold can run the orientation program for prospective 2013 Kindergarten students.
Over a period of eight weeks the children will attend school for two hours every Friday.
They will be involved in a range of activities organised by Mrs Arnold and Year 5 students who will be Kindy buddies next year.
The P&C will also fund a pilot writing program designed to extend and develop the skills of stage 1 and 2 students.
Teachers say the school is ‘‘very appreciative’’ of the committee’s efforts.
