On Wednesday we provided a sausage sizzle lunch for next year’s Preps and their parents after their prep information session. This was a great opportunity for our future Preps to experience “lunch at CJC” with a huge thank you to Mr Chant and Frank who took time out of their busy days to cook the BBQ and to Megan and Madame Pommier who helped me in serving all the smiling faces. It was a wonderful experience and we can’t wait to see the 2020 Preps again during the school wide transition day on Tuesday, December 10.
Speaking of December 10, that is the last day to buy your wristband for the End of School Year Party at the discounted price on Qkr. After that all wristbands will only be available at the gate on the day of our party and you wouldn’t want to miss out. Everyone must buy a wristband to join in the fun. There are only 15 more days until we can all celebrate ‘the year that was’ with our CJC friends, teachers and families.
There will be something for everyone, no matter your age - from 1 to 100 as well as dinner and snacks available to purchase in the Food Van Area so make sure you buy your All Access or Spectator Only Wristband today!
Don’t forget to buy your wristband!
Entry will be via wristband only with all gates to the school locked in the afternoon, for safety and security reasons, and every attendee must always wear a wristband. There will be one entry and exit gate which will be via the front of the school, between the main building and the carpark. Discounted wristbands are only available via the Qkr App before 3.30pm on Tuesday, December 10, so make sure you buy yours today!
Mango delivery and tray collection
The delivery date will be announced next week, so please keep a look out, as there will be only one date for the collection of your pre ordered trays. Collection will be immediately after school on that day.
In order to avoid some incidents that occurred last year we are asking that if anyone is unable to pick up their order personally that they please email PCLeaders186@gmail.com ASAP with who you authorise to collect your tray on your behalf. Without this email we will not be able to release your ordered trays.
Let’s get ready for 2020 now!
Changes were made by the Dept of Education as to how memberships and school parent committee run. We had to adopt a Constitution and under this Constitution all members must be registered. This is done by simply signing a Registered Members Form. The signing of this form does not commit you to anything except being informed, first hand, of events and to attend upcoming meetings. It allows you to nominate for any PC Position at the AGM and gives you the right to vote, when necessary at any meetings. Most of all you get to become involved, have fun and partner with the school and the community to further enhance CJC for all our kids… and our kids love to see us involved!
At the end of every school year we lose members as they move on and historically we wait until the new year‘s AGM to fill these absences. Realistically, why wait until February? We always need motivated and enthusiastic parents willing to work together and support each other positively and we want YOU to join us now. Our hope for next year is to have every parent, carer or guardian of all our students join the PC and support CJC and you can join now. It is super easy to do - just complete the Members Registration Form, found on the last page of the PC Constitution (at the end of this section) and email it to PCLeaders186@gmail.com or hand it into the front office so we can welcome you onto our team.
We need some more ideas
Do you have a fundraising event or activity suggestion for the 2020 school year? Planning is underway and we are trying to present our 2020 school calendar of PC Events to School Council for approval as all fundraising ideas/events needs to be pre-approved before we can do them. We are keen to try any new ideas that you may have seen, heard or know from other schools that work well and are easy to arrange and run, as we want to really refocus our efforts next year of raising as much funds as possible. Our school is growing and our amenities need to be upgraded but that will not happen without us - we need to raise the funds to make it happen. So if you have an idea please send it directly to PCLeaders186@gmail.com with as much information as possible to get the ball rolling.
Second-hand Uniform Shop
The second-hand uniform shop will be open next Wednesday morning, December 4 from 8.45am until 9.45am if you require any items for the 2020 school year. The shop is dependent on stock availability so will remain open whilst there is stock available to sell. Please note that all sales are CASH ONLY as there is also limited sizes currently. The shop is located upstairs in the main building on the first landing to your right. l
All money raised by the Second-hand Uniform Shop is directed back to the school for purchases that are of benefit to all our children and if an item is not available all school uniform items can be purchased from the supplier PSW in North Road, Ormond and they are open all January. Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm and Saturdays 9am – 1pm. In February, they will revert to normal times and will be closed on Mondays.
