The Deniliquin High School Parents & Citizens Committee held its annual general meeting last Tuesday, with Jenny Fellows re-elected as president.
The P&C committee, which fundraises for the Deniliquin High School, is a school-based organisation made up of parents, teachers and interested citizens.
Mrs Fellows is joined on the executive by Graeme McKindlay as vice president, Lynda Barclay as secretary and Lynda Danckert as treasurer.
Mrs Fellows said the only change to the committee was Carolyn Murphy standing down as secretary.
‘‘Carolyn has been a fantastic asset and will be missed as she moves on and we thank her very much,’’ Mrs Fellows said.
‘‘We are looking forward to Lynda’s continued involvement, now with an executive role.’’
The P&C Committee gave more than $27,000 to the school in 2013 which helped pay for a class set of iPads, an iPad trolley, additional Deniliquin High School blazers, student journals, and a new oven and electrical upgrades for the home economics department. It also provided all Homework Club wages.
Mrs Fellows said the P&C was thankful to have received funds from the school canteen and a Bendigo Bank Community Grant.
It has two sub committees – Driver Education Committee and Canteen Committee – and also coordinates the Homework Club initiative.
The P&C meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month in the high school’s administration building from 6pm. All are welcome.
