My name is Cassie and I’m the current President of Eastmont Pre-School. Both my sons have attended Eastmont and are now at primary school. My daughter, Elizabeth, started at Eastmont this year and in the 3yo group. This will be my second year as President and I am looking forward to working with the 2019 committees and meeting many of our Eastmont families over the coming year.
We had two working bees recently to get the pre-school ready for the start of the year. New tan bark was distributed, windows cleaned, leaves raked and blown, vegetation trimmed, the foyer was cleaned, play equipment was repaired, and everything was given a general tidy up. So thank you to everyone who helped at one (or both) of these working bees – Mel, Josh, Kath, Carole, Singrid, Anthony, Megan, Bronwyn, Scott, Katie, Maggie, Sarah, Jawad, Dean, Cynthia, George, Fiona, Luke and Ash all did a terrific job. And thanks to all our little helpers who all enjoyed tidying up their kinder.
Thank you also to Mel, Singrid, Megan and Carole who all come in over the holidays to water the gardens and to Mick McMahon who cleaned up after a branch was found on the grassed area.
Our 3yo groups has a new name! To line up with our 4yo groups (the Koalas and Possums) the 3yo group will now be the Wombats.
One of the things that makes Eastmont Pre-school so special is our wonderful staff. Sonya, Sue, Helen, Moira and Nithi are have returned to Eastmont again. We are also excited to welcome two new staff members to Eastmont this year: Kim and Angie. Kim is the 3yo Wombats teacher and the 4yo Possums co-teacher and Angie is one of the educators for the Possums. All the staff have done a terrific job so far settling and getting to know all of the children starting this term.
The Social and Fundraising team have an exciting year of family friendly social events planned. The year starts with the Welcome Coffees as well as our Welcome BBQ on Friday 15th March from 5:30pm – 7pm. Both events are a great way to meet other families at the Pre-School.
The Committee of Management are all looking forward to a productive year.
