Hi We have our schools P&C AGM coming up in a few weeks, we have a bit of a disagreement between some members. Does anyone know the answer. Are non financial members of the P&C eligible to vote at the AGM? The federation website is a bit ambiguous and is being interpreted in 2 ways by the disagreeing parties. Appreciate any feedback or links.
Only financial members can vote at any meetings, ie. they need to have paid their dues at the previous meeting to be eligible. You can't just rock up on the night, pay your money and vote at that same meeting.
Ring the P&C HQ in your state, they will tell you whatever you need to know.
I think the rules are pretty straightforward stating that you have to pay before the close of a meeting and you are then allowed to vote at any future meetings. However I have never been part of a P&C that actually follows the "rules" terribly closely.
With the cooler weather upon us, here is a collection of easy winter inspired cut, sew, knit crafts that you can do with the kids. There are glove monsters, no-sew scarfs, and sock snowmen. Winter is a great time to get crafting.
Fidgets and other sensory hand held toys are a great way to encourage attention and concentration. We all love to rock on a chair and click our pens or chew gum to stay alert and attentive, so why not let children have functional and socially acceptable fidgets too, to help them learn and keep them focused on learning.
