The Christmas Concert is ON.
We can't wait to see you all and share a lovely evening. Please remember to deliver your children to the door at 5:30-5:45 and take a seat out the front ready for a 6pm start (no parents inside please).
Raffle tickets will be available for purchase at the front gate. All raffle winners will choose from our amazing list of prizes and vouchers - details to come soon. Tickets are $3 each or 5 for $10.
Dear Families and Friends,
We have received RSVPs and attending numbers from many families but not all.
Please comment on this post or email last minute RSVPs over the weekend - we need to know for catering.
A cute little something that came to us via email...
This is absolutely amazing. If you have not seen it before just type in your address or any friends addresses and look through the window at the snow falling on your home today. It's hard to believe how it works!!!!
This is what Kindy looks like. Click on the link below to see your place...
STEPS will be attending Green Gables on Wednesday 12th December at 10am. All children aged 4 and over are entitled to a free vision screening. If your child doesn't usually come on Wednesday and you would like them to participate then please bring them in at 10:30 and stay until they've been assessed. CONSENT FORMS MUST BE COMPLETED for children to participate - available at the sign in counter.
Just in case yo've not heard the buzz around town our end of year celebrations are next Monday - more details on the attached poster.
To ensure the night gets off to a smooth start please bring your children to the door (we will be there to welcome them) and take a seat in the front garden. We know you'd all like to stay for our final preparations but it is very distracting for the children and super hard for the teachers. We'll have extra staff on hand so if there are separation tears there'll be enough hands for some tender cuddles and care.
DID YOU BUY YOUR RAFFLE TICKETS YET?
If not then check your parent pockets.
There will also be tickets being sold on the night so arrive with plenty of time.
Thank you to all the parents that have volunteered to help on and before the day. If anyone else could spare some time please let us know.
Koula is our longest standing staff member at Green Gables. She started working here in 2000 and is returning to work today after a years maternity leave. Koula is returning on a part time basis for now and will be with us each Monday and Wednesday.
We are very excited to have Koula back, especially at this busy time of year. Her warm and gentle nature puts the children in her company at ease and her experience in the job is a comfort to staff as they know she can be depended upon.
Koula is very likely to remember many of you and your children but a little reminder of names could be helpful (we all know the powers of baby brain). If your child/family started at Green Gables this year then you won't know Koula yet and vice versa. Please introduce yourself to her and welcome her 'home'.
Welcome home Koula.
