Our P&C

SGPS P&C is a registered not-for-profit association consisting of parents, carers, teachers and members of the community.

We explore topics surrounding school life, fundraising and our community in an attempt to further develop and enhance the facilities, opportunities and resources our children have at school. We organise events and oversee the operation of the Uniform Shop, School Canteen and School Bands, along with other endeavours, for the purpose of raising funds and providing a quality service to the school. The proceeds of our fundraising initiatives are primarily targeted towards enhancing the academic, social, emotional and physical well-being of our students. Additionally we endeavour to empower parents and carers with information and knowledge to better support their children's education, growth and development at Samuel Gilbert Public School.

We aim to promote an inviting, inclusive, cohesive and engaged community and to foster a positive working relationship with the School Executive.

We typically meet the second Tuesday of every month during school terms. Meetings are held in the staff room and start at 7.30pm. All members of our community are welcome. For more info click here


Fete Message from the School

It's exciting to have the Great Fete back in 2018. This event is not only a highlight for the Samuel Gilbert students and families but also for the wider community, who come together for a day of fun and enjoyment.

This year we have a fabulous combination of traditional stalls such as Trash n Treasure, Lucky Dip and the Cake Stall to name a few, through to rides and activities for the kids and a variety of market stalls for the adults - the Samuel Gilbert Great Fete has something for everyone!.

We look forward to sharing the day with you on Sunday 19 August.

Fete Message from the P&C

Thanks to all of our Parents, Volunteers, School staff and local businesses helping to prepare for the 2018 Great Fete at Samuel Gilbert Public School! Each year, the event involves the whole community, with local businesses, families, and the school playing a huge role in its success.

The fete is a fun, friendly and well organised day that attracts thousands of visitors.

In previous years, fundraising from the fete has allowed the School to purchase white boards, learning materials, computing equipment and software, air conditioning and other resources and infrastructure. Samuel Gilbert is a growing school and there is now, more than ever, a need for us to rally as a community to provide the vital resources that our children and the staff of the school need to develop future focused learners.

Thank you to both the school community and broader community for your support. To become a part of this amazing day in 2018 please see Contact Us and Get Involved.
