Good Evening Gainsborough,

Our school P&C had our Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 28th February where we elected our Executive team for 2024. We would like to say a big thank you to our outgoing Executive - Sara Sullivan. Her contribution as President for the past 2 years has been invaluable and she leaves me incredibly big shoes to fill. I am however personally delighted to still be able to work closely with her and learn from her this coming year as she continues on as an active member of the PnC.

Please welcome our Executive team for 2024:
President - Rhiane Sherriff
Vice President - Craig Tulczyn
Secretary - Victoria Davison
Treasurer - Gaylene Oppermann

We can’t wait to help make 2024 a great year for GSS!

Watch this space,
Rhiane Sherriff


📅 Clear your calendars!! 💫

We have tentatively set dates for our General Meetings to be held over the course of the year. See below and mark it in your diaries 📔

Our first General Meeting for the year is next Wednesday 13th March at 5pm held in the Executive Services building (office).

Discussing all things fundraising and events for our students and our school over the next 9 months. Everyone is welcome and we can’t wait to bring some fresh new ideas to the table for 2024.

We were so lucky to end the schools Christmas Concert with a visit from Brazilian Santa 😃 the atmosphere was wild!


We are working with our school to help those in need.

One of the ways we are helping is starting our first Uniform initiative. Recently we have been able to pass some donated uniforms onto families in need and we would like to continue this.

If you have any uniforms that are no longer needed please drop them to the Executive Services Building.

The lovely administration team will have a bucket to place them in.


A gigantic shout out to all of our volunteers this evening! Without you our P&C would not be able to run as smoothly as tonight's disco did or at all as a matter of a fact. Thank you so much!

Our next and final General Meeting for 2023


With the Colour Run ready to go for this Friday afternoon - please see below for some handy information:

1. The event starts at 1:15pm on the school oval and will finish at 2:30pm.

2. Children need to have an old white shirt or similar for the run. These can be worn to school on the day.

3. It is advisable to have old shorts on the day as well rather than the school uniform shorts.

4. Although the colour powder is not supposed to stain - I have run several of these events and usually find the colour is difficult to get out of clothes.

5. Students who are dressed in school uniform will be able to run the fun run course but WILL NOT have colour dye thrown at them.

6. Children are welcome to bring sunglasses if they would like to in order to avoid any of the colour going in their eyes (we will be aiming from the head down!)

7. The food dye used can stain very light or blonde hair for a few days. Coconut oil being rubbed through the hair before the event and then hair being washed with cold water after the event helps the colour not sticking to the strands as much.

8. If you are picking your child up by car - it would be highly advisable to bring along a towel for them to sit on!

9. We will have a water station shooting coloured water at the students - they should not get soaked but might get a little wet as well - parents might like to pack a towel!

10. Parents are welcome to run with their children’s groups if they would like to.

11. Students will be encouraged to leave the oval at the conclusion of the event and not touch anything on their way out of the school! They will have their bags and will not be returning to the classrooms.

We are looking forward to a great afternoon this Friday!
