Locker Co-ordinator needed

The P&C runs a locker hire service for students at Chatswood High School. 

Our current locker co-ordinator Krystyna is looking to transition the role to the next person and it would be useful to have someone at Orientation Day. 

The locker co-ordinator is an enjoyable role involving contact with the students, with support from the office staff and uniform shop. You can organize it to fit your schedule.

You need to be available for 3 -5 very full days at the school:

  • Orientation Day: early December. Setting up a locker hire desk; taking and checking names, payments and locker agreements; cashing up at end of day. (needs 2 people)
  • Padlock refund day: December, before end of term. Organise students to clear out locker, issue padlock refund, student to sign for refund; check padlocks all working; re allocate padlocks to new lockers. (needs 3 people)
  • Locker issue day (s): During 2nd and 3rd week of term 1. Arrange small groups of students to be instructed in padlock use and allocate locker. Only once has this been completed in a day. Usually it takes another 2 part days to get all 70 lockers allocated. (needs 2 people plus school runners to find students!)

In your own time you make lists of: email contact; spreadsheet for bookkeeper with names and monies paid; locker /padlock list; student/locker list; sign in and out list. All of these are formatted and ready to use. I have organized paperwork to suit myself, the P&C bookeeper and school office staff.

I am looking for a replacement now so you can get an idea of what is involved. I have had parent, John Phibbs, help me out each year, and he is happy to continue with his support next year. You will also need a working with children check which can be organized through the P&C.

Some of you may have rented a locker in year 7. It is really important that P&C continue to run this scheme on behalf of the school, as it does make a big difference to the students.

If you are able to take on this position please contact me at . You even get your own email address!!

Hope to hear from you soon.

    The uniform shop accepts donations of second hand uniform for re-sale. These items are not available for sale during busy periods.

     

    Music Uniform

    The uniform shop sells the music uniform worn by participants in the music program.

     

    Volunteers Wanted

    Volunteering in the uniform shop is a great way to get to know the school and community. You will get to know our group of friendly and dedicated volunteers. It is not all work as we get together twice a year for social events, usually to try out multi cultural food and cuisine that the volunteers made from home. You may take a look at "What we do" at the uniform shop events. Come in and we'd love you to join our big uniform shop family.

  • What is the Parent Network?

    The parent network co-ordinators for each year group maintain a list of contact details of all interested parents in their year group. This list is circulated to those on the list, enabling parents to be able to contact other parents in their child's year.

     

    The parent network co-ordinators may organise social events during the year, send information emails, and ask for help at certain school functions.

     

    How do I join?

    Fill in your details or email your network co-ordinator or fill in a hardcopy form that is available at the school office.

  • Would you like to get more involved but not sure where you fit?

    The P&C has a variety of functions and there are many opportunities to get involved: view the list of roles within the P&C.

    For further information about any of these roles, please contact the President  or the Secretary .

     

    Uniform Shop Volunteers

    Volunteer in the uniform shop on a regular basis.

    Please note that a Working With Children Check (WWCC) is required for all volunteers. See more on our info sheet.

    Apply online for your WWCC - its free and can be used for other organisations that require it from you.

     

    Committee Members

    Come along to the general P&C meeting - there are 2 meetings each term on either a Tuesday or Thursday night.

    Join one of the P&C committees - uniform, fundraising, building - and have a say in how things are run.

     

    Parent Representative on Teacher Interview Panel

    Would you like to represent the parent body on teacher interview panels as required? There is a small amount of training to do first.

  • The P&C supports the school with specific projects and events where the school cannot afford the cost, but these projects can only go ahead if the P&C can afford it.

     

    Parent Contributions

    While funding is sought via grants and sponsorship for specific projects where appropriate, parents are asked to contribute to the P&C to enable these projects to continue. Suggested contribution amounts are:

    Building Fund (Tax Deductible): $150 per student

    General Fund: $90 per student

     

    Contributions can be made with your school fees.

  • The P&C has gathered resources from various speakers and these are available for parents - please see the Parent Resource page.
