Busy Bee - Thank you!

Dear Parents,

Thank you to the 50 or so wonderful families who were able to come and help out on the Busy Bee on Saturday. I appreciate that some were unavoidably detained or unable to make it along on the morning. It was a fantastic Community Building event and many thanks go to the P&F and the  Board; especially the coordinator of the event, Carlos Acuna. Before we draw the movie passes we want to make sure we have the names of all the helpers from the weekend. If you didn’t manage to sign in please send me your name and I will add you to the draw.

Caritas Café in the hall on Tuesday

This Tuesday 4th March, the year 6 class will be hosting a Caritas Café in the hall at lunch time. There will be savoury and sweet items for sale and all children from PP- Yr 6 are invited to purchase any of the food available. To buy the food, there will be raffle tickets for sale in the hall for 50 cents each, and one raffle ticket will buy one piece of food. Children can buy as many raffle tickets as they would like. The raffle tickets will then be drawn in a raffle with a small surprise for the winner.

SCHOOL FEES

Most families would have received their Annual Fee Statement yesterday. Some Fee Statements needing adjustments will be sent home today. Thank you to the families who have already brought in their Fee Payment Form. A new Direct Debit Form and Agreement and an updated Fees Schedule with bank details, have been placed on the website.

If you have any queries, please contact Alison Elsegood on 9341 3148.

OLGC Playgroup

Our Lady of Good Counsel Playgroup runs at the parish Centre on Friday morning during school term. The playgroup needs a new group of parents to take over running the group. There is lots of equipment and toys there, and grants can be applied for to access additional funding.  Please call Ruth on 0419 871 745 if you are interested in running the playgroup, otherwise unfortunately it may need to close down as it really needs to be co-ordinated by someone at the school or parish.  The playgroup details are below.

Year 1 News

Hi Everyone!

Firstly just a few reminders:

·       This Thursday the Year One children will be having a disco to celebrate the end of the year.  This was an option that the students voted for and they seem very excited!  The children may dress in Christmas clothes or colours.  (No uniform required for this day)  It would be terrific if you could provide a plate to share for this!
