Over the last couple of weeks it has been great to see so many of our parents and carers contributing to our school, whether it be planting our winter veggie plot, fixing the goal post or wrapping Mothers' Day gifts.
Our Mothers' Day Stall will be held tomorrow morning from 9 am. Thank you to our Parents and Friends Committee for all the effort put in over the last few weeks in preparation. I also hope to see many more of our Mums, Nans or significant others at our morning tea tomorrow. This will be held in the Prep-3 Open Learning Area at 11 am.
This week we have had a few new staff members join our team. Jane Corso has joined us in the P-3 area where she will providing assistance to some of our students and also Elizabeth Ruscoe, speech pathologist will be working once a week providing support for our children. David Jenner is currently Acting Principal at Waaia Yalca South but will return to us in a few weeks time. If parents have any issues that you would normally discuss with David, please feel free to contact myself.
Parent And Friends
At the last Parents and Friends meeting, ideas were discussed for next year's Fete and organisation for the Mothers Day and other activities. On 27th June the school will have a Pyjama Day where the students will be asked to bring along a teddy bear as well as a gold coin donation. It was decided that funds would be used to purchase a deep fryer and trestle tables and the possible relocation of the bike shed. The school will also be hosting the Lightning Premiership on 3rd August and will be catering for a BBQ at the netball courts.
The current members of our school council for 2018 are Liz McDonald (President), Melissa Hall (Vice President), Kathleen Newby (Treasurer), Kerryn Warrin, Tracey Bannon, Danielle Woolley, Amanda McIntosh, Kerryn Powlesland, Caz Parkinson, Debbie Oliver, David Jenner, Jacqi Hope and Deb McKeown.
