As a community based not-for-profit centre, SIOC requires the financial support and volunteer man hours from its community to maintain this wonderful community service.
SIOC is managed by a parent based committee which meets every 4 to 6 weeks. If you would like to take part in supporting our Centre, please speak with one of our staff.
With an age range of birth to 5, you can imagine how many wipes and tissues the centre goes through.
We have a continual need for tissues and wet wipes.
From time to time, we will have need of certain items such as garbage bags, washing up detergent to craft and kitchen supplies. This list is posted up at the front desk when needed - and it would be appreciated if each family could contribute.
We have a number of events on during the year to help with our fundraising efforts. These include:
• Easter Raffle
• Sausage Sizzle BBQ at Bunnings
• Movie Nights
• Tiny Tots Disco
• Toy order Catalogue
Many of these events, require some form of donation in goods and especially time in terms of helping out with setting up or organising or just lending a hand.
During the year, parents are asked to participate with general maintenance of the Centre. This ensures the environment is safe and secure for the children. Centre maintenance tasks are often completed at weekend working bees held once a term and include jobs such as:
• Weeding/pruning gardens
• Repairing items
• Cleaning play equipment
• Handyman items such as hanging up hooks, checking hinges etc
• Odd jobs for social events such as preparing BBQ’s etc.
A roster is put out before the working bee and parents are asked to assign their name to a task.
Remember, the more volunteers, the faster the work. Normally this takes no longer than a couple hours per person.
