Thanks to everyone who attended our recent Parent & Friends meeting– it was great to see new and old faces there! It’s been a busy term for fundraising and organising events. Our first big fundraiser of the year is only days away – how exciting! We have lots of exciting activities coming up and hope that we can find a few more volunteers to come along and help organise!
Fundraising so far….
2019 TARGET - $20,000
Subway Lunches - $635
Colour Explosion – quick reminder
Friday 29th March
What a fantastic effort so far, the children and yourselves have done with the fundraising! We are well on our way to hopefully getting the new shade sail! Just a reminder that children are asked to wear an old white top and whatever they wish on the bottom for school on Friday. The children will be getting wet and having chalk thrown as they run past, so we suggest goggles or sunglasses to be worn and also a towel and a spare change of clothes to be brought to school.
If you would like to volunteer at the event, please post a message in the Parents and Friends Facebook Group.
Tickets have been sent home to all children. There are some spares at the office if you require them. The raffle will be drawn at assembly on Friday 5th April after the Easter Hat parade.
We are taking donations of chocolate or Easter themed goodies for the raffle. If you would like to contribute, please ensure you drop your gift off at the office before Thursday 4th April.
Save the Date – Friday 10th March. Mums/ Guardians/ Grandmas/ Aunts and special persons are invited to come and spend time with their child from 1.00 – 1.30 in the classroom and then join us for Afternoon Tea from 1.30pm in the Gym. Further details of this event will be sent home very early in term 2.
The Mother’s Day stall will run on Wednesday 8th May and Thursday 9th May.
Term 2 will see us having two of these events. The first one, Friday 24th May, will be a Bakers Delight Pizza lunch and the second will be a Subway lunch (Thursday 20th June).
We will be continuing to sell icy poles for term 2. These are being sold for $1.50 on a Friday after lunch eating time. We are looking into alternative treats and will communicate plans next term.
