Welcome to Term 4! I hope everyone had a relaxing holiday. Don’t forget to pack your child’s hat for kinder sessions this term and to apply sunscreen. There is some sunscreen in the foyer and near the sign-in book if needed.
Thanks to everyone who came along to celebrate Helen’s Birthday (and start her farewell celebrations). Current and past parents and staff attended and it was a lovely evening full of laughter, reminiscing and cake! If you couldn’t make it, there will be an opportunity later in the year for the current 4yo families to farewell Helen.
Term 4 is a very busy term here at Eastmont.
Last term we secured a grant for approx. $1400 from the Whitehorse Council. So far we have purchased four new rugs for the children to sit on and play, which are arriving next week and are looking to upgrade parts of our outdoor area. We are looking to re-home the old rugs, see notice below and speak to Sonya if you can assist.
Our Bunnings BBQ & Cake Stall is to be held at Vermont South Bunnings on Sunday 20th October. All families are expected to help out by volunteering on the day or baking something for our cake stall. Sign up at volunteersignup.org/JR7MD
Below are some important dates for your diary. We hope to see lots of families at these upcoming events!
Grandparents Morning Tea will be held on Saturday 9th Nov at the kinder with details being announced shortly.
A highlight of the term will be the Eastmont Pre-School Christmas Party at the Mooroolbark Miniature Railway on Sunday 17th November 10am – 1pm. All families are invited. More information coming soon!
Our AGM will be held on Wednesday 20st November at 7:30pm. Attendance is compulsory for all 2020 families.
Our last working bee for the year was held at the end of the school holidays. We had families raking and sweeping, digging up some of the agapanthus and doing a general clean-up of the kinder. Thanks to Fiona, Alex, Kim, Mick, Kath, Carole, Megan, Mel and Lynette and a group of children who gave up their Sunday morning to help get everything ready for Term 4.
Finally, we are looking for some new committee members for next year. Being on the committee is a great way to meet others and contribute to your child’s education. Eastmont Pre-School can only continue to operate effectively with a full committee. See below copy of letter sent to all 202 families and feel free to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or speak to the other committee members if you would like more information about the roles available.
