Proposed change to CHS Canteen operator in 2018


Chatswood High School P&C: Canteen Operations in 2018.

Over the past 8 years, the Chatswood High School (CHS) Canteen has been operated by the CHS P&C.

Recently the Executive of the P&C has undertaken a review of canteen operations following concerns about its financial results. As a result of this review, the Executive is recommending that the P&C will discontinue operating the canteen from 2018.

Please note - a canteen will continue to operate on-site at CHS in 2018. However, the P&C will no-longer be responsible for its operations. Instead, the school administration will publicly tender for an external operator to run the CHS canteen; with the new operator expected to commence operating in Term 1, 2018.

  • The P&C would like to thank the Canteen manager and staff for their hard work in providing nutritious and healthy food to our students, and loyal service in maintaining high operating standards of health and safety since the canteen was opened by the P&C in late 2009.

This decision has not been taken lightly and reflects the current operating model and financial position of the canteen. The current staff of the canteen have already been briefed on the impact of this proposed change.

Please read the attached documents for background and further information on this intended change - information and financials.

  • For clarity, there is NO other change to current P&C activities or operations in 2018. In particular, the CHS Uniform shop is NOT impacted and will continue to operate as it is currently.

What happens next?

  • The CHS P&C will hold an extraordinary meeting on Thursday, October 19 at 7.30pm in the IEC common room to vote on the following proposal:

“The CHS P&C Executive proposes that as a result of financial losses over the past 4 years, the CHS P&C will no-longer operate the CHS canteen from the end of term 4, 2017.“

  • To be able to vote on this proposal on October 19, you must be:

A 2017 financial member of the CHS P&C and attend (in person) the extraordinary P&C meeting on October 19th (commencing at 7.30pm in the Intensive English Centre (IEC) Common Room at CHS). This means you have attended a P&C meeting during 2017, paid the $2 membership fee and have had your name recorded in the 2017 membership register.

Please contact the P&C Secretary () via email immediately to confirm your 2017 membership status according to P&C records.

  • If you are not currently a 2017 financial member and wish to vote-

You must come along to the next General P&C meeting on Thursday, 12 October, 2017 and pay your $2 to join. This meeting will commence at 7.30pm in the IEC Common Room.

And you must attend (in person) the extraordinary meeting the following week – 19 October, 2017 (also commencing at 7.30pm in the IEC Common Room).

  • If you have any questions regarding your 2017 financial membership and your ability to vote on this proposal please contact the P&C Secretary immediately on email:

    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.

    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.
