The carnival steering team has been working hard coming up with a theme and finalizing stalls for the upcoming carnival.
Our theme for the 2019 carnival is 'Around the World'. We hope to take you on a journey with a range of cuisines and performances that you will never forget.
We will also be incorporating the Junior School Council's suggestion of 'Kids just wanting to have fun' into the theme, which will be represented in some capacity throughout the promotion of the carnival.
Thank you to those people who have donated bags of sugar. We are still accepting donations so if you haven’t yet donated and would like to do so please send it to the school office. (see Jam Stall Request)
Over the next few months, we will be requesting for some second hand toys, books, clothes (adults and kids), wine, craft goods, chocolates and other items that are needed for the various stalls.
Watch this space for the full list of what is required. We will develop a schedule where, each week or even fortnightly, we highlight what is required. All classrooms will have a donation box so children will know where to drop off their donations. If you are planning on de-cluttering these school holidays, this is the best time 😉!!
Most stalls have already been filled. We will have a volunteer sign-up sheet in the coming months.
We still have a few roles/stalls to fill, so if you would like to be involved, please contact the school office. 9568 1300
Accountant- Updating overall budget (already set up), forecasting stall profitability and price setting.
Set up and Pack up team- Volunteers assistance to help with setting up and packing up is crucial to the running of this event. Can you assist with tasks of putting up a marquees, putting out furniture and equipment?
Plumbers, Electricians and Builders - We are also currently looking for a team of plumbers, electricians and builders who can help with the carnival.
Please contact the office for further details. If you can spare a few hours on the day to ensure stalls are operational, please yell out. We are not expecting you to ‘volunteer’ the entire day. The more helpers we have, the less each volunteer will have to do. So please contact us if you have these skills and would like to help.
Stalls- Souvlaki, Dutch Pancakes – These were very successful stalls at the last carnival, but unfortunately, we don’t have anyone to run them this time. If you know of any family who would like to run these stalls, please let the school office know.
We will be conducting a briefing session next term for all of the stall holders, so you will have a better understanding of what's involved in running a stall. You will have the opportunity to ask for additional support/advice during this session.
The reason for the session is that we are getting feedback from some parents who are a bit worried that they have not run a stall before and don't know what's involved. We want to reassure you that you will be supported throughout the process and that we are here to help!
A huge thank you to all of the wonderful parents who have already put up their hands to help out with the carnival. It will not be a successful event without your help. All money raised will go towards much needed play equipment for the school. The Junior School Council has already had a meeting (with some input from the younger kids) and are deciding which new items they would like to see in their playgrounds. We cannot let them down!!!!
