Minutes of August Meeting
East Canning Vale Primary School 
Parents and Citizens Association

Held Wednesday, 22nd August, 2001 

Meeting opened at 7.30pm.    
Chairperson:  Vanessa Smith-Colombini

Confirmation of Minutes

Minutes were confirmed and seconded as a true and accurate record.

An amendment was noted for the June minutes, which incorrectly suggested that the school name “Hungerford” was unanimously agreed unsuitable.  In fact, no formal vote was taken and the decision was not unanimous or final.

WACSSO Training Night

Thanks to all who attended on 2nd August for training. 

School Progress

Peter Glendenning - School progress is going well.

Mail Out

The mail out went on schedule.  

Upcoming Committees

Peter Glendenning - Some important new committees will become more important soon.  These are: a Pre-Primary Committee to work with pre-primary staff (this is an immediate issue), a Health and Sport Committee and a Grounds Committee.


Jacqueline Small - The minutes will now be available via the website:  www.onlinecommunities.com.au  for those with access to the Internet.  Those who have provided their email address will receive them via the net.  Alternatively, they will be available from Canning Vale and Ranford Primary Schools and hopefully also from Paul Andrew’s office at the Sanctuary Waters shops on the corner of Campbell and Ranford Rds (to be confirmed).  Anyone unable to get a copy is very welcome to call Jacqui on 9455 5595 and a copy will be sent.  The above decision has been made to cut the high costs associated with a mass mail out.  The minutes will be available two weeks before the next meeting so that everyone has a chance to read them prior to attending.


Enrolments for 2002

Lyn Thackray - Pre-primary children at Ranford were given an enrolment form where some of the information given was a little ambiguous.  Are these forms to be filled in and given in to Ranford Primary, or are parents to wait?

ACTION:  Peter Glendenning to confirm.


The next meeting will be held on Wednesday, 26th September 2001 at 7.30pm in the Ranford Primary School Library.

The meeting closed at 9.01pm
