STRAWBFEST 2018  


It is with great pleasure that we all witnessed the magic of Strawbfest unveil itself on the 7th September 2018. We opened our doors to not only our school community but the broader community and successfully celebrated our 32nd year of the event.
An event like this does not come together without incredible people behind it. There are a multitude of people who work tirelessly from conception to production but the P&C Executive would like to personally take a moment to thank and acknowledge the following people:
•The Twist Brothers
•Alicia and Dani, Strawbfest Convenors
•Ross Fisher for site management
•Katherine, Sue, Lee & Nic for managing the food
•Linda Short and Judy Fisher
•Fiona Lippey for Graphics
•Heath our Groundsman
•Parent Reps
•Teachers
•Admin Staff
Thank you again for your continued support. We wish everyone safe, relaxed and reenergising holidays and look forward to seeing you all again next term.
Kym Jackson
 President

Welcome to Chevallum State School on behalf of the Parents and Citizens Association and the families of the Chevallum community. Our P&C Association is committed to ensuring all our endeavours support the values and mission of the school, therefore benefiting the educational experience of each and every student at Chevallum.  Involvement in the P&C also provides a lasting positive example to children on the value and fulfilment of volunteering within your community.

Our parents take pride in the distinctive learning environment of Chevallum and our Parent’s and Citizens Association looks forward to welcoming you and making you feel at home in our school community.

We are fortunate to have a highly motivated, active and skilled P &C dedicated to working in support our school community and students.  P&Cs provide an opportunity for the school community to become actively involved in the operations, development and improvement of their school. The positive influence of parent involvement in education is well documented and cannot be underestimated. We encourage you to extend your involvement through joining the P&C, helping in the classroom, volunteering in the Café or Uniform Shop, assisting in the Kitchen Garden and participating in Strawbfest, our annual fundraiser.
