2020 iCAN CHALLENGE – 26th March 2020

Most of us have heard of the Royal Children’s Hospital.  Some of our families have been involved with the hospital in some way or other, if you haven’t you probably know someone that has. 

 

Back in 2014 Langwarrin Primary School joined together with Elisabeth Murdoch College to create a challenge to raise funds for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.  A 50 km walk! This was the beginning of the iCan Challenge.

 

We are now preparing for our 4th walk.  In 2020 we have over 50 students, 30 parents and 5 staff participating in the challenge.  Together with Elisabeth Murdoch College, Woodlands PS and Langwarrin Park PS we will be part of the biggest iCan so far.  Over 300 people walking from Melbourne (St Kilda) to Frankston foreshore.

 

SO…..we need all our families to get behind our walkers and help them achieve the challenge.

 

Here at Langwarrin PS we are holding two free dress days; where we are asking our families to help provide a donation to assist our walkers on the day at the various aide stations along their 50km walk.

 

Friday 21st February - donations of drinks - gatorade, water or powerade

 

 

Friday 13th March - donations of snacks - lolly snakes, jelly babies, muesli bars, mini sultana boxes

 

 

For our prep families and other new families to the school.

Throughout the year we hold various free dress days for a range of reasons; but most often it is to raise awareness and funds for a cause that is close to our hearts.

Our free dress days mean that the children can wear their own choice of clothes to school for the day, that’s right – no school uniform on this day.  Students are reminded that they must still wear enclosed shoes and bring their hat for outside play.  Student’s shoulders should be covered. (no spaghetti type straps)

Sentral Absences

It is a DET requirement that all student absences are explained by a parent/guardian. This can be done by logging into your Sentral account and replying to any unexplained absence notification you have received from the office. If your child/ren are going to be absent please log the absence before 9 am. 

 

CSEF

The CSEF is an annual payment to the school to be used towards camps, sports and/or excursion expenses.

Applications for 2020 are now open and will close on 26 June (end of Term 2). For concession card holders CSEF eligibility will be subject to the parent/legal guardian's concession card being successfully validated with Centrelink. CSEF application forms can be collected from the school office.  

 

Book Club

Scholastic Book Club has commenced for 2020. Book Club Issue 1 orders are due back by Monday 17th February. This will be the final issue for which the school will accept cash payments.

From Issue 2 onwards all book club orders are to be placed online via the LOOP parent payment app. If you need help setting this up on your phone pop into the school office for assistance.
