PTS Treasurer Needed
With the regeneration of our PTS we are in great need of a Treasurer. If you have accounting experience and would like to help the PTS we would love to have your expertise on our team. Please contact Charlotte Houghton [email protected]
A big thank you to rooms 16 and 17 who raised $508 last week – even with the year 5s away on camp! Thank you to everyone who baked and helped out at the stall – the kids love their end of week treat so it’s lovely to have such a great display of baking for them to choose from. Our weekly Bake Sale is one of our strongest fund raisers during the school year – did you know that money from last year’s bake sales purchased 15 Chromebooks and a storage cabinet for VAS?
Grandparents’ Day Dress Rehersal – 7 June
As part of our preparation for the Grandparent’s Day and as a way of offering parents a chance to see/hear their children perform, we are inviting parents of our concert performers to attend our dress rehearsal on Thursday 7th June at 9.15 in the school hall. We hope that as many of you as possible are able to come.
(Please note that is a rehearsal rather than a performance, but we hope it will be a great rehearsal!)
Grandparents’ Day – 8 June
This is a wonderful day for grandparents (or a special person/people in your children’s lives) to come to the school and see what our kids are up to in class.
The morning kicks off with a concert at 9.15am – this is only for the grandparents as seats are limited and we’d hate them to miss out. We intend to film the concert and make it available on the website for family viewing.
In addition, there’s a morning tea for grandparents in the hall.
As Grandparents’ Day coincides with the Scholastic Book Fair, there is also the opportunity for the grandparents to buy their grandchildren a book (or donate one to the library) if they wish.
Click here for the invitation to Grandparents that you can print off and give to your grandparent for the day. (You may have already have been given one of these in your child’s book bag). The invite lists all the details of the day and has a map on the back so that the Grandparents know where to go.
We would love parents’ help for Grandparents’ Day. We are looking for:
- * Four people from each class to supply a plate for the morning tea– the senior and middle school are asked to supply savoury treats, and the junior school is assigned sweet treats.
- *Two parents from each class to help on the morning (this might be helping with food – setting up, serving, cleaning up – or directing grandparents, or helping to sell books at the Book Fair).
Thank you to all of those that have offered your help already. If you can help (and have not yet been in touch) please email Bridget Snelling at [email protected] sooner rather than later. Let us know if you can bring a plate and/or are happy to help out on the day.
This week we have distributed our 2018 VAS School Directory to the eldest child in each family. It’s a great guide to connecting our community so keep a look out in your child’s book bag.
Thank you so much to Sue Underdown, Shelley Cunningham, Tracey Hemingway, Joanne Henderson, Kinzsa Vahry and Rozy Williamson for their help making this happen.
And of course, a big thanks to all of our advertisers who are so generously supporting our school – we are very grateful!
