Woolworths Earn and Learn

8 September 2017

This year both the Kindergarten and Junior Years will be participating in the Woolworths Earn & Learn program. Through this program we will be able to obtain new educational resources for our school/early learning centre – and all we need you to do is shop for your groceries at Woolworths.

From Wednesday 26 July to Tuesday 19 September or while stock lasts, we are collecting Woolworths Earn & Learn Stickers.  You will get one Woolworths Earn & Learn Sticker for every $10 spent (excluding liquor, tobacco and gift cards). Place the Woolworths Earn & Learn Sticker onto a Woolworths Earn & Learn Sticker Sheet and when it’s complete, the Sticker Sheet can be dropped into the Collection Box here at the school or at your local Woolworths.

At the end of the promotion, we’ll be able to get some great new equipment. The range is extensive and offers lots of items ideal for our students – including resources for Maths, English, Science and some fantastic fun supplies for Arts & Craft, Sport and for our library.

Collection boxes are located on the Kindergarten verandah, Prep room and Junior Years Reception.

Lunches

25 August 2017

From time to time we have children in the Junior Years Office telling staff they have no lunch. While we would never let them go hungry, we are often challenged to find something for them! Sometimes they eat all of their food at morning tea and leave nothing for lunch. Would you please check with your daughter and ensure she keeps food for lunch?

From next week, we will keep a list of girls asking for food and we will advise the class teachers so that they can contact you and keep you aware.

Children’s health

14 July 2017

As we enter the worst term for sickness, colds and flu. We ask parents to be vigilant with their children’s health. Please do not send them to school if they are unwell, as this only spreads the germs across the school quickly.

We can send work home if required, and this is preferable to the girls struggling here at school. Thank you for your support with this.
