How can you be Involved?
Beach Bites Canteen is owned and managed by the P&C at MVPS. Our success depends hugely on the generosity of our parents as volunteers. We encourage all parents at MVPS to come and help out. You will be pleasantly surprised at the treasures you will find ... It is lots of fun and a chance to meet many other parents at the school!
Most importantly, the children LOVE to see mum, dad and/or carers in the canteen - they get very excited, feel very proud and it makes them feel part of the school community. Just simple light kitchen duties are all that's required, and a friendly smile for the children.

School banking is through the Commonwealth Bank and managed by volunteers and organised through the P&C. This is an important weekly event each Friday morning that aims to teach children to save money for their future needs. There are prizes for children to choose from when they reach certain goals of regular deposits into their accounts to encourage the behaviour of regular savings.
If you are interested in helping out with banking please get in contact with the always cheerful banking coordinator Barbara to find out how you can get involved.
The Manly Village Public School has a proud history of school bands that have been organised by volunteers, partially funded and managed by the P&C.
The band is a great opportunity for children to learn, play and perform music throughout their schooling. ‘Blow tests’ for year 2 students are held in term 4 along with a parent information night regarding what is involved in becoming a part of the school band and enable budding musicians to join. There are usually 3 bands to accommodate every child’s ability and these are Training Band (for beginners mainly year 3), Intermediate Band (for year 4 & some year 5 students) and Senior Band (for year 5 and year 6 students). The bands perform throughout the year at assemblies and other significant events.
If you are interested in your child learning a musical instrument please get in contact with the P&C band committee.
In addition, if you are interested in contributing to the improvements to musical learning at the school please contact the band committee to find out ways that you can help out.
