Morningside State School P&C's AGM
Morningside State School P&C’s Annual General Meeting is on Wednesday, March 21st at 7pm in the School’s Resource Centre.
The current P&C Committee is hard working, has fun fulfilling their roles and are proud to be a part of a thriving school community.
Recently, the P&C has contributed to a new shade sail for a large playground on the school Oval, a new playground for the prep children and they continue to ensure that the school’s classrooms have air conditioning, important as new rooms have been added as the school continues to grow.
The Committee also put on a lot of events throughout the school year and often open these up to the wider community and to other local volunteer-run organisations.
Could Morningside State School P&C Treasurer be the role for you?
As a local community member, a role on their P&C Committee may be of interest to you. In particular, the school is looking for a Treasurer and thought that the role might suit a grandparent or retiree.
MSS current Treasurer, David Furze, has done a fantastic job over the last year and has put a lot of processes in place that have made the role far more manageable. However, he will not be nominating for the position again this year. As the role is critical to the operation of the P&C, we are hoping to have conversations with those interested in the position in advance of our AGM on Wednesday, March 21st.
The role of Treasurer can appear daunting without breaking down the activities involved. Here are a few details;
- The Treasurer provides a monthly financial update to the P&C. These reports are based on standard templates which if updated regularly present few challenges.
- Accounts are handled by our external bookkeepers. The Treasurer’s role does involve coming into the school twice a week to sign and approve invoices and acknowledging/approving invoices online.
- Annual reports, financial statements, audits and tax returns are handled externally; your role is to ensure the accountant has access to the information they need. You have the assistance of a paid admin assistant who manages day to day tasks and a lot of communication with our bookkeeper.
- Ideally you would have an exposure to finance or business and excel (but it’s not essential) and have an interest in the financial viability of the P&C.
