Welcome back! Term 2 already … where does the time go? We hope everyone had a lovely holiday break and maybe even managed to spend some time relaxing!
Firstly, we hope you had a great time at Friday Fun. It was a huge success and raised over $5,000 to go towards classroom resources!
The Fundraising Committee would like to thank all the people that helped made Friday Fun happen.
Thank you to the families who made baked goods to sell, who donated jars and treats to go into the jars, and who donated their old toys and books so they could become someone else’s treasure.
Thank you to the parents who set things up, who helped out on the stalls, and then helped pack it all away, and also to those parents who showcased their businesses in our adult market.
Thank you to the school staff who helped on the stalls, who let us pour endless buckets of water on their heads, and who worked away behind the scenes to help make it all happen.
Thank you to the teachers and students in J1 and J2 who created the amazing mini golf course.
Thank you to the Pedal Prix team who let the kids discover what it’s like to sit in their cars.
Thank you to Westbourne Park Uniting Church who loaned us the dunking machine and games and helped fill up all the buckets and create the fun.
Thank you to our wonderful committee members who put in so much effort and make all the hard work fun.
And thank you to all the children who came and had a fabulous time!
