Summerhill Park Kindergarten is a legally constituted body under the Incorporations Act 1981. We are a community-based, not-for-profit kindergarten, with all funds raised through fees, levies or fundraising activities going back into the operating and capital costs of running the kindergarten.
We are run by a voluntary Committee of Management (CoM) comprising ten parents elected annually to represent and act on behalf of our kindergarten community.
The CoM is responsible for the finances and general running of the kindergarten including staff employment, maintenance and organising social and fundraising events. Monthly meetings are held at the kindergarten throughout the year, and are open to all families.
Committee of Management (voting roles):
• Vice President
• Enrolment Officer
• Assistant Treasurer
• Maintenance Officer
• Social Manager
• Grants Officer
• Marketing Communications
There are also non-voting roles for class representatives, IT support and numerous subcommittees. These roles do not have voting rights at CoM however their expertise is counted on to help the kindergarten function smoothly.
• Yellow Group Class Representative
• Blue Group Class Representative
• Red Group Class Representative
• IT Support Manager
• Social/Fundraising Subcommittee
• Reconciliation Action Plan Subcommittee (RAP)
Other working groups can be established to address specific issues as they arise (eg policies, funding decisions, major projects).
