WSSASC CALENDAR 2023 /2024
The canteen and BBQ run on a roster system, if you forgot to put your name down on sign on day, you will be allocated a date in each term, (one for BBQ and one for the canteen). If unavailable to attend on your night please arrange a replacement, there is no need to contact the office. The roster will be posted on the notice board, in the canteen as well as appearing in the Wilston Weekly. The canteen and BBQ roster is an important function for the Friday club nights and carnivals, and relies on the generosity of club volunteers to maintain this service. You will usually be required to help out once a term, but helping out on any night is appreciated. If you are new to the club, the canteen convenor will show you what to do and you will usually be paired with experienced helpers.
How can I help?
Swim Club is run entirely by parents volunteering their time and effort. Each week we require help with timekeeping, cooking, serving in the canteen and cleaning up at the end of the night. None of these tasks require great skill, and bring the opportunity to meet other parents as well as the satisfaction of making a contribution. Don’t forget to support our Club Sponsors.
Quick note for new families:
BBQ – If you are on BBQ roster for the night, you will be required either to cook the food or serve it. No money exchanges hands, all items are purchased at the canteen and a token will exchanged when they are served by you. Please make sure all BBQ items are washed up at the end of the night.
Canteen – All items are clearly priced, we offer BBQ items, hot box items, healthy snacks and drinks.
