MBBC P&F Association 2017 Wrap Up

22 November 2017

Dear Parents

The MBBC P&F AGM was held on Tuesday 7th November. Thank you to everyone who came along. We had an update from Mr Wood, and received a preliminary audited report of the Associations financial activity for 2017. We also welcomed a new committee, including a new president for 2018. Congratulations and thank you to Emma Hunter for stepping into the role of President next year. I wish her every success and I know she will do a great job. Also joining Emma is Michelle Crouch (VP), Leanne Stevenson (Treasurer), Chris Richardson (Secretary), and 2 new committee members – Stephen Gray and Graeme Fletcher, who join Michael Carr, Stacey Mears and Janelle Bostock on the committee. Congratulations to the committee members.

In 2017 the P&F cleared over $30,000 in raised funds thanks to the generosity of parents. Thank you all so much for coming along to our events and giving so generously. Our main funding support this year went to three items – a large fan now installed in the Sports Hall, some portable staging that will be used for many events over the coming years, and $15,000 towards the fit out of the IT area in the new MBBC library.

Thank you to all the committee from 2017 – we had a spectacular year, and a lot of fun. Thank you to retiring members Clayton Doo, Jane Willmott and Kim Lawrence. Thank you also to Michael Carr and Andrea Misso, organisers of the very successful Trivia Night and P&F Ball respectively.

I’ve been tremendously honoured to serve as President. I have met many new people from the school community, and made new friends. Thank you to the school administration staff, and Leadership group, who made me feel welcome and provided invaluable support. I hope you all have a happy, restful and safe festive season. See you all in 2018 – ready to start refreshed for another year of activity, and community-building.
