Welcome back to Term 2! Lots of PTA activity planned for this term starting with our annual working bee on 19th May – register your attendance via the below link.
Working Bee – Sunday 19 May – Come and make a difference
Following on from the success of our inaugural working bee last year and as part of our efforts to improve the School’s outdoor environment, we are organising another Working Bee on Sunday 19 May. This year our focus will be on painting, weeding and hedge trimming – the more volunteers we have the more we can do!
To volunteer and for more details on the jobs please click on the below link:
You don’t need to come for the entire four hours – we have allocated volunteers for morning and afternoon (10am-12noon and 12noon-2pm) but of course you are welcome for the whole day!
Feel free to bring your kids along and there will be a sausage sizzle on the top field. This is a community event so if you have any friends or family who may be able to help we would love to hear from them too.
Any questions, please contact Lynda on firstname.lastname@example.org
Trivia Night is back – Friday 14 June
Dust off your glad rags, search out your outrageous costumes and start getting your team together… one of our most popular events of the year, Trivia Night is coming!
Keep an eye out for details over the next few weeks but we are looking for volunteers to help on the night and we are looking for auction items – if you have something (a holiday home, products and services) you would like to donate we’d love to hear from you – email Lynda email@example.com
Jammies in June – PJ’s collected Tues 04 – Fri 07 June
This year we will again be supporting Jammies in June which is an initiative run by the Middlemore Foundation to get warm pyjamas to kids in need.
Supporters collect pyjamas which are then distributed through Middlemore Hospital and local GPs to families in need. The aim is to help keep kids warm over winter to break the cycle of winter illnesses.
Volunteers will be in the hall every morning from 8.30 – 9am during the week of 04-07 June. If you would like to donate a new pair of pyjamas they would be gratefully received.
Any questions please contact Lynda firstname.lastname@example.org
Anchor Bottle Top Collection
It’s easy – start saving your bottle caps from the following eligible milk bottles; 2L and 1L Anchor fresh white milk, this includes 2L and 1L Blue, Lite, Trim, Calci+, Protein+, Silver Top, Zero Lacto Blue, Zero Lacto Trim, Organic Blue, Organic Trim, a2™ Blue and a2™ Trim and put them in the collection box in the office between 01 April and 10 June.
Get involved and have your say in 2019
We are always looking for more parents to get involved – if you have some ideas we’d love to see you at our PTA meetings held the first Monday of each month in the school staff room, or happy to hear from you anytime – email Lynda email@example.com.
