A friendly reminder about our Monster Garage Sale which will be held on Saturday 14th February beginning at 10:30am. This will also be a great chance to promote our school and come together as a community and have some fun!

There will be a number of free children’s activities so please mark your diaries and spread the word.

We would welcome donations of goods in saleable condition.  Please drop any contributions off to the  School office.

We also welcome ideas and offers of help.  No job would be too small so please let Kay know if you would be available to help.

Book Fair coming soon to our school!

The Scholastic Book Fair® will be at our school in the week commencing Monday 9 June. The exciting theme for our 2014 Book Fair is “Reading Oasis: A Cool Place to Discover Hot Books!”

Our Book Fair will be a journey back to Ancient Egypt overflowing with hundreds of book treasures just waiting to be discovered. We hope you will join us as we help students discover the power of reading. We have very special events planned for that week, including:

  • Competitions
  • Dress-up day for the children
  • Visits from writers and others involved in the many aspects of books and story-telling

We will be displaying books for sale in Room 3, and this will be open at drop-off and pick-up times We will have some extended hours including on the night of our PFA social and AGM (Thursday 12th June – BYO supper).

The school will receive a percentage of sales and this will be used specifically to buy new books for the school library.  If you have some time to help us during the Book Fair please let the office know which areas you might like to be involved in:

  • Helping to set up – on Friday 6th June, and/or over the weekend
  • Going on a roster to sell books during the week – at 3-3.30pm, and an extended afternoon, or some mornings.
  • Helping to pack up in the following week

Please support our school library, and your child’s reading, by purchasing some excellent Scholastic children’s books. Encourage friends and grandparents to come along – it’s a great opportunity for stock-piling presents.

Look out for more notices in the coming weeks!
