The Father's Day Breakfast will be held on Friday 30 August from 7.30-8.30am. Hopefully you have all received your invitations and have passed them onto your dads, granddads, step dads, and other special men you would like to come and enjoy delicious food and coffee with your children. For catering purposes, please RSVP by tomorrow, Friday 23 August, by filling out the eForm on the Skoolbag app on the Events tab. Thank you to Alex Speed and parents from Room 5 for organising.
Thank you to everyone who has ordered aprons for Father's Day. Orders will be available at the Father's Day Breakfast. For those who can't make it to the breakfast, orders will be sent home with students that day. There will be a limited number of spare aprons available for sale on the day - $20 each, cash only.
Silver September starts on Monday 2 September - the day after Father's Day. We will be collecting silver 5c, 10c, 20c and 50c coins as a fundraiser for our new nature play space. There will be a container in each classroom to put your coins in. At the end of the term, we will use the collected coins to make a giant 20 as part of our school's 20th anniversary celebrations, so the more coins we collect, the bigger it will be! If you haven't already, start collecting your loose change today!
The next Cake Stall will be held tomorrow from 8.30am outside the MFP - thank you to Room 10 for organising.
Considering how busy the term has already been, and we still have the musical and swimming to go, we have decided not to have a special food day this term. There will be a few special food days next term - one for Pedal Prix, Subway lunch for Splash Day and one on the last day of term. More information will be sent out closer to the dates.
We are still collecting and recycling empty drink containers, so please keep bringing in your cans, bottles and milk/fruit boxes. Thank you to everyone who has donated drink containers to this project.
At the last P&F meeting, the committee approved $12000 in funding for the first stage of the new nature play space, which will include the chicken run, raised garden beds, and compost bin. Work will begin in the next few weeks, and we will be looking for volunteers to help with building and landscaping at working bees, so watch this space!
Starting in September, Woolworths will be running a promotion, where you can get free seedlings with your weekly grocery shop. We would love any donations of these (or other) seedlings to go in the new raised garden beds. A special thank you to Chris Smith for all the preparation he has done so far.
