2022 NBPS P&C Committee
Keep an eye on the School Newsletter and the Facebook group for event notices and updates.
Position Vacant - Grants Coordinator
We're seeking the assistance for a Grants Coordinator to assist in the investigation, coordination, and application for grants for the P&C to help the school.
Previously the P&C have looked at garden grants to have the school garden refreshed, notice boards with musical elements (where the students can play with the music while parents read the notices) and sustainment/recycling grants. If you are up for the challenge, please contact us through our email email@example.com.
Items coming up
- School Disco!! It's back. We're looking at theme ideas now and will have more information coming out about the when and how it will be organised. All year groups will be catered for, from Preschool to Year 6.
Second Hand Book Fair
We will be holding our annual Second Hand Book Fair on Saturday 30 July! With thousands of quality books for children and adults - all priced to sell! As well as a sausage sizzle and a cake stall loaded with ridiculously delicious treats, this is the perfect way to spend a winter's day in Canberra!
The book fair is being held in the school hall from 10am to 4pm - so come and join us for a fun day, and bag yourself a bargain!
If you would like to volunteer to help out on the day, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will pop you on the roster. There are lots of ways to help out, from setting up and packing away, to processing books sales, and cooking sausages on the BBQ. Whatever you can do - we’d love to have you on our team!
Book Fair Donation Station – This Saturday 2 July!
If you have good quality books you no longer want, we would love to accept your donation. There are collection tubs at reception, or you can drop them off to our donation station this Saturday 2 July from 1-3pm in the Mabo Blvd carpark (opposite the shops).

The P&C have registered with the Canberra Return-it scheme, you can donate to the P&C by using the QR code (or phone number) attached to the newsletter. The process is:
- Place your bags of cans or bottles into a semi-see-through bag (they need to see it's not general household rubbish), a normal kitchen tidy bag is okay.
- Scan the QR code, or enter the phone number, from the flyer, at the return point, follow the remainder of the instructions and attach the printed sticker to the bag.
- Deposit the bag(s) into the hopper.
- The bag(s) will be collected by the Return-It/CDS group and counted at one of their facilities (during a quiet period of their day).
- A notice of deposit will be received by the P&C - Thank you!!!
There are two, close to school, return points located at:
- Gungahlin: O'Brien Place - near the carwash, Gungahlin Vet and Goodyear tyres.
- Amaroo: near the school oval off Horsepark Drive.
The returns generated from the scheme will assist the P&C to support the school, from sports equipment, school discos, Year 6 end-of-year surprises, etc.
