During the year our Policy/OHS/Grants Officer, Sarah, has been busy applying for different grants. Sarah has been lucky enough to secure a grant from the City of Whitehorse for approx. $1400. This will help us with a few things like updating the security lighting at the kinder, purchasing a new indoor mat and upgrading our play equipment.
When you go to kinder this week, you will notice our new outdoor blinds which were installed last Friday. We had builders in during the holidays to repair the pergola in preparation for their installation and they look fantastic. We thank the State Government for their generous grant which has enabled us to improve this area so that the children can play in all year round - even when is pouring rain, as it was last Friday when the Possums group got to test them out for the first time!
With the recent bad weather, a gum tree branch fell into kinder. The council inspected the tree and the other trees in the vicinity and sent contractors last week to chop down any overhanging branches into the kinder - down the side and at the front of the kinder.
Make sure you keep the following dates free this term:
- Saturday 31st August – Father’s Day Morning Tea at the kinder. RSVP by Tuesday 27th August.
- Sunday 8th September – We will be holding vision portraits on this day. It is always a popular event and a great way to get some lovely photos of your family. More information is under 'Events' on Skoolbag or refer to the flyer that has been placed in the children’s pockets already.
- Thursday 19th September – Helen’s Farewell / Birthday Dinner. More information coming soon.
