It is June already, halfway through the year and almost the end of Term 2, hard to believe isn’t it? I am sure that everyone is looking forward to a little break over the school holidays.
The end of May saw a group of Mums go out for a drink, nibbles and a good chat at the Mitcham Social, it was a fun night had by all who attended. Thank you Renée for organising such a great social event. I am looking forward to the next one sometime in Term 3.
The Pictureproducts where sent off on the 24th May and I received notification that they had started production for our products on 29th May, hopefully we will receive our products by late July as it is a nine week turnaround at this time of year. I loved looking at all the creativeness and fabulous artwork as I sorted them into the Kinder groups. I look forward to seeing the finished products, especially the new products such as the tablet mat and pencil case. Thank you to the 29 families who bought products, we raised just over $400 for the Kinder.
Well one of the most awaited events on the kinder social calendar - the Kids Movie Night last Friday - was a great success. The children love the it and I know it has been talked about for numerous weeks in our house leading up to the day! Thank you to the 34 families who braved the weather to come and enjoy ‘Sing’ the movie, popcorn and pizza. The kids were all very well behaved and even sat watching for a long time, till some of them set up a temporary dance floor at the front of the room, which was just lovely to see. Thank you to John and his team at Vermont Pizzeria for the yummy pizzas. John was very accommodating and even did split deliveries so they stayed warmer. Tell Megan sent you when you visit. Thank you to my subcommittee and committee as to whom the help and support on the night made it such a success. Thank you to Charles for saving the day with speakers, the sound was on-point. A huge thank you to David Mutimer and the St James community for allowing us to use your Community centre for the night, it was a fabulous space and served our purpose well. We managed to raise just on $500 from the night which is fabulous.
We have had a great response to the Woollies Earn and Learn stickers too, thank you to the families that have place stickers and filled sheets in the box in the foyer. We have also had a huge amount collected from the box at the Brentford Square Woollies. The program continues till the 25th June so keep collecting. The count so far is approximately 3400 stickers, so it looks like we will be able to buy a few of the products such as Lego and Duplo.
We have a few events in Term 3 to look forward too, the first being the Father’s Day Morning Tea 31st August and Vision Portraits which are being held on 8th September, more details for both events to follow. We will also be holding a parents only dinner for teacher Helen to celebrate two special milestones in her life on the 19th September, more details to follow. There will also be another Scholastic order early in the term. Look forward to another fabulous term. Enjoy the break over the holidays. Thank you for supporting these events, this is how we can help improve the kinder for our children and is greatly appreciated.
