BUSINESS ARISING FROM LAST MINUTES
Donna – nothing heard from Polly as yet re the samples of shirts. Tricia and
Donna went along to the Co-op and spoke to P&C Federation Rep who
encouraged us to join. Donna will call tomorrow regarding samples. Margaret
advised she has found another contact for uniforms but asked if we would like
to proceed. Hazel advised she is somewhat anxious about costs of the
uniforms if we proceed with this company but is happy for us to look at shirts
only at this stage. Margaret is concerned with the quality of the material.
Brenda will make enquiries about the company who make the uniforms for
Ruse Public School. Margaret will also enquire about blazers to be
purchased and held by the school to be used for school representatives.
Denni suggested advertising for a sub-committee.

Need to know what we can and cannot sell at recess. Margaret advised all
recess items and iceblocks and drinks during the warmer weather. Margaret
advised the auditor has recommended full opening until recess every day and
the canteen must be profitable. Canteen to start recess in week 3 and to be
trialled until the end of the term to see if it is viable. It was suggested we ask
parents for ideas for recess. Various menu items were discussed and other
school menus examined. We have found most schools are not complying
with the healthy canteen policies and it was suggested that is why they make
a high profit. Again discussion regarding tendering the school canteen.
A canteen committee was suggested and named:
Margaret Webb, Denni Green, Belinda Trudgen, Brenda Dean, Jo Stewart
and Hazel Delves (Denni)
Tricia / Hazel
UNIFORM SHOP REPORT
September banking was $483.00 with no invoices to be paid.
Further to your suggestion to open two days a week, Tricia has offered to help
and Thursday and Friday mornings are probably the best with most people
getting paid on these days. (Cheryl written report).
A Uniform committee was suggested and named:
Valerie Moszt, Cheryl Neale, Donna LaRue, Tricia Coombs and Hazel Delves
A reminder to go into the newsletter that uniform items can be ordered paid
for and picked up from the canteen.
