Parents and Citizens AssociationBambara Primary School
Welcome to Bambara P & C Committee
At Bambara Primary School we have a very active P&C who organise many fundraisers throughout the year. These events not only raise vital funds for our school but also create a welcoming school community for all our students, parents and care givers to enjoy. Your involvement in the P&C is one of the best ways of being aware of school activities and what is planned to improve the Learning Environment for your child. There are many ways of supporting the P&C however, personal involvement is one of the most appreciated. Meetings are held twice per term, dates are published on our Term Planner, Calendar, Facebook page and Skoolbag app. This is your opportunity to share your ideas. Please contact us if you would like more information by emailing us at - firstname.lastname@example.org
Everyone’s contribution is valuable to the P&C and all parents and caregivers are welcome to come along to the meetings. If you have an idea for raising funds please put it on the meeting agenda for discussion and as a team we will work together to bring it to life. Meetings are normally held on Wednesday at 6.30pm in the staff room, dates are published in the School Newsletter and on the Term Planner. Everyone is welcome!

We have a canteen service available each Friday. These lunch orders come from Duncraig Senior High School canteen. Orders can only be placed online by going to – Flexischools We ask that any parent who uses this facility take a turn of handing out the lunches to the students once per term. Visit our School Lunches page for full details.
Banking will be held every Wednesday in the library from 8 am .
The School Banking Program is run through Commonwealth Bank. Students are able to make deposits into their Youthsaver Account at school and receive a token each time they make a deposit.
Once they reach 10 tokens they are able to redeem them for a prize. It’s a great way to teach children about savings and on top of this the P&C receives a commission based on the number of deposits that are made. If you would like your child to participate in the program all they need is a Youthsaver Account which can be opened online here; commbank.com.au/schoolbanking or you can open an account at any Commonwealth Bank.
If you would like to open an account, please complete this application form.
