Carisbrooke Parents and the surrounding community are exceptionally generous with their donations to the school.
Throughout the years CPAC has managed to undertake a number of significant projects aimed to enhance your child's overall learning experience.
Our annual projects are identified through discussions with parents, students and the School.
HOW DO WE SET THE BUDGET
The CPAC budget is compiled over a number of months with a DRAFT presented at the September CPAC meeting, and the final Budget approved at the October CPAC meeting. All parents are invited to CPAC meetings, and it is a useful opportunity to ask questions regarding both fundraising and proposed projects. The CPAC budget typically consists of five categories: fundraising, annual expenses, operating budget, teacher requests and parent requests.
Our 2017-2018 CPAC budget was approved on Oct 18th 2017. Should you wish to see a copy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Fundraising is undertaken every year and throughout the year. Our largest fundraiser is Fun Lunch. Other fundraisers include the Card Project, and the ongoing Shop4Carisbrooke site. Funds raised in one year will go towards funding CPAC projects and activities for the following year.
Annual Expenses are for activities designed to enhance your child's education experience by funding performing artists, educational lectures, library activities and additional classroom materials and activities.
CPAC Operating Budget are costs for CPAC social events (Welcome Coffee, Teacher Appreciation Lunch, Sports Day, Coffee with the PAC, Multicultural event, Grade 7 Year end), CPAC activities (Class Directory, Committee activities, Parent Education Nights) as well as special initiatives. There are also two special funds (Special Request Fund and Compassionate Fund) allocated at the discretion of the PAC through a confidential discussion with the Principal, to assist students and families under individual circumstances.
Teachers Requests are items identified by the Teachers and recommended to the PAC.
Parent Requests are items identified by parents and recommended to the PAC.
