PCG – Parent Community Group

The Clearview Parent Community Group (PCG) is a group of interested and motivated parents/caregivers.

The PCG organises various fundraising events and initiatives throughout the year which supports our school financially by raising funds to put back into the school.  Another of our aims is to bring together our community of families within the school.  We believe it is important to maintain strong relationships between school and families.

Some of the regular projects the PCG runs include: sausage sizzles, school discos, second-hand uniform sales, Fete and other opt-in initiatives such as art calendars, raffles, family photo sessions and the sale of other items.

Money raised by the PCG directly supports the children and school.  Some examples of what the PCG has supported, team uniforms, sporting equipment, scooter and bike stands, library books, wet day games, picnic tables, kitchen equipment for Homebase blocks, additions to the junior playground, Duplo, transport costs and the senior playground.

Friends of the PCG/Parent Volunteers

We are always seeking interested and willing parents/caregivers who want to give some of their time to support events but don’t want to necessary become a member of the PCG.  If this sounds like you, why not fill in our online form to join our Friends of the PCG email list (or feel free to email us directly to ask to be added to the list).  When extra help is needed for individual fundraising events throughout the year, we can refer to this list.  As a friend of the PCG you would not be obligated to help out every time you are asked.  However if you are on our email list, we can let you know what we have coming up and see if you can help.

Selling Uniform Second Hand

We are always in need of a lot more stock for the second hand uniform sales and gratefully accept items that you may wish to donate for this purpose.

We also provide the option to sell items on your behalf.  If this is something you would like for us to do, please bring them to the school office with the 2nd Hand Uniform form. When we sell on your behalf, you receive 80% of the item sold, with the PCG receiving 20% donate back to school.

We are currently stock taking ahead of our next second hand uniform sale but we are always in great need of items in good condition particularly sizes 8-10.
