With so much happening over the next 2 weeks with the CHICKENS visiting and EASTER celebrations we have decided to postpone our Harmony Day celebrations. See the flyer below for new dates and please get in touch with staff if you're interested in bringing in music, stories, want to help cook or have other ideas to contribute to celebrating our diversity.
Dear Parents and Friends,
With so much happening over the next few weeks we thought a summary may be helpful so you and your children can be as prepared as possible. Here goes...
13th March - Wednesday - Crazy Hair Day - a registered event for the World's Greatest Shave. Sponsor us by clicking on the icon below.
13th March - Wednesday - Cadbury Fundraiser Chocolates delivered - collect these from the office, sell them in time for Easter and help raise money for our back shed and new outdoor equipment. We're aiming to raise $2000 so are hoping for everyone's support.
14th March - STEPS vision screening - free vision test for children aged 4 and over. Please complete a permission slip for your child to be included - available at the sign in counter.
22nd March - Friday - Uplift Project bra collection ends. Click on icon below for more information but essentially they collect new and used bras to send overseas to less fortunate women. They are particularly interested in MATERNITY BRAS IN ANY CONDITION. Please add them to the pink wheelie bin in the office.
18th-22nd March - Multicultural Morning Tea Week - a registered event for Harmony Day. To celebrate the cultural variety that is Australia we will be hosting morning tea from a different culture each day (more details below). The morning's curriculum will be inspired by the culture of the day so if you would like to be involved please email the classroom teachers.
18th-28th March - Chicken Hatching Program - children will observe chickens hatching from eggs and experience them with all senses. The preschoolers will also tend to the chickens needs in preparation for some remaining with us as Kindy pets.
28th March - Thursday - Easter Hat Morning Tea - make an Easter hat (bonnet) at home with your children and wear it to the morning tea. We are also hoping to have a special hopping visitor to deliver some yummy Easter treats. Children not usually attending on Thursdays are welcome to participate under adult supervision.
29th March & 1st April - CLOSED for the Easter long weekend
7th May - Tuesday - Mother's Day Morning Tea - a chance for mums and other significant ladies to come and be pampered by their children. Put this in your diary now. Children not usually attending on Tuesdays are more than welcome to attend under adult supervision.
Help your child get the most out of everything by talking about the experiences at home. Please send in in any interesting questions or comments they have so we can include them in our curriculum planning.
We've now registered our Crazy Hair Day as an official fundraising event for the World's Greatest Shave - an annual event that supports Leukaemia patients.
Support us with as little as $2. Simply click the icon on the left to make an online donation and support this worthwhile cause.
