Friends of Warrandyte Primary School (FOWPS) Report


Welcome back to school for Term 2 from all of the FOWPS Committee! Amidst the chocolate-fuelled hyperness of Easter and 'business' of keeping kiddies active and engaged over the school holidays I hope you found some time for yourselves.

As you'll recall, we had a couple of school fundraisers at the end of last term; an Easter raffle and a hot cross bun drive. These were both really well supported by you, our school community, and raised over $1000 which will be used towards a few different projects. 

This term we have another two events on the calendar to share with you; a Mother's Day Competition and a school disco.


The Mother's Day competition is open to all students in the school and students may enter more than once. All they need to do is produce something about their wonderful mother, or mothers in general. This could be in an artwork, video, poem or story. Some teachers may encourage students to work on these in class but they may be also done at home. Entries need to be submitted to the front office (Cherise or Wendy) or emailed to me ( by 3:30pm Wednesday 5th of May. Prizes will be announced at assembly on Monday 10th of May and will be in the form of a certificate for the child and a gift for the lucky mum! 


The school disco date has not been decided yet but is likely to take the form of a Prep-2 session (4:30-6) and a 3-6 session (6:30:8:00) on a Friday night. There is even some talk of glow-in-the-dark body paint! We will be looking for volunteers to fill a roster for the night (and a DJ- any volunteers?!) so watch this space.


BIG THANKS call out to Bec Chivell, Tori Swedosh, Vy Costen and Maddy Wilson who helped with Term One fundraisers and Jaime Young who has offered to run the discos this term. Also thanks to 8 Artisan Bakery for generously donating the hot cross buns at less than cost price and Quinton's Super IGA for allowing us to buy all the Easter eggs using our IGA points (would you like to donate your IGA points to WPS?).   

If you would like to get more involved in fundraising or 'friend'-raising please join our FOWPS Committee by messaging me.


Thanks all of you for your continued support.
