Welcome back to the last term of 2018, it’s hard to believe the year is nearly over! We hope you all had a lovely time over the school holidays. We have a busy few weeks coming up with some wonder P&F events. We need heaps of volunteers. Maybe you have some time to spare 30minutes or an hour to volunteer?
Our next P&F Meeting will be held this Tuesday the 9th of October at 7.30pm. Everyone is welcome to attend. We are now starting to prepare for 2019, maybe you are interested in taking on one of our many vacant positions?
After the success of the year level champions this year and last year we will be continuing with this model. Thank you to all those who are continuing on or have already signed up for a position.
We are still looking for a couple of people to take on the team leader positions. Over the years we have developed fantastic events and fundraisers and implemented some great systems, which have improved year to year, thanks to our past and present committee members. At this stage we are not introducing anything new for next year. So when you sign up for a champion or coordinator position, there are always people around who have done it before who will be able to help and guide you in the right direction.
We have an awesome community and P&F at St James, let's keep it up for our new families in 2019.
If you would like to volunteer for a co-ordinator or volunteer position, please visit www.volunteersignup.org/F3AMP
If you are interested in the Team Leader Position please email the P&F at [email protected] or make contact with Jen Everett or Daniella Migliorati

Twilight Sports BBQ – Monday, 22nd October
The St James Twilight Sports will be held on Monday the 22nd of October. Our Grade 4 Champions will be running the BBQ this year. We require volunteers to cook and serve the food. You should have received the timetable for each event from school last term. Last year each event ran for about 20 minutes, which may help you to pick out a good time to volunteer.
We also need helpers to sell raffle tickets, this can be done while you walk around watching your kids.
Please sign up at www.volunteersignup.org/PDAFQ
Icypoles will be on sale on Friday’s at afternoon playtime. Cost is 50c. We will also be selling our leftover Lamington fingers. We require volunteers for 30 min each Friday to sell the iceypoles to the kids.
