Spoil your Dad
Last week’s newsletter mistakenly gave the wrong date for the Father’s Day stall – many apologies for the mix up. The stall is definitely on Thursday 1 September. So if your child would like to purchase a gift for their Dad or special person, the shopping will be amazing! Gifts will be $5 or $10 each. Please send a bag to squirrel home the gift.
Stall Coordinators Donna and Karen are doing a wonderful job of sourcing and presenting the gifts. And
the generous donations from parents means there will be something perfect for every Dad.
Donna and Karen would really appreciate your help in:
- Donating to the stall – some popular items are BBQ mates, gardening supplies, golf balls or sports gear, movie
passes, small vouchers for places like 99 Bikes, Bunnings or BCF. Please drop your gifts to the office.
- Wrapping gifts – wrapping bees will be held on Friday 26 and Tuesday 30 August, in the church hall after drop
off – please just drop in to help for a while.
- Serving at the stall on Thursday 1 September – supporting our young shoppers to choose their gift – please
email email@example.com if you can help.
Thanks so much for supporting this event. The students love shopping for their Dads.
The Father’s Day stall is a minor fundraiser for the P&F.
HELPING HANDS GROUP
The Year 5 Helping Hands Group are raising funds for the children of Kiribati. We are
organising our own fun day for the school on this year’s Foundation Day, Friday September
2nd. We will be running many stalls including: craft, lucky dip, pick-a-stick, toy swap, beauty,
tattoo and a sweet stall. To do this, we will need your help. We are asking that you assist
us by donating lucky dip prizes, tattoo transfers and wrapped lollies. These can be
delivered to the Year 5 classrooms now.
Also, we are going to be holding a GIANT TOY SWAP. We are asking students to donate any unused toys
that are in good working condition. On the Friday fun day there will be an opportunity for
students to purchase a toy of their choosing for a $1 donation.
All money raised via the Walkathon, Fun Day and other activities will be given to Sister
Bernardina of Good Samaritan Sisters to assist in improving their Education Centre in Abaokoro
We will need adult help on the day so if you have completed the volunteer’s course and are available to assist Year 5
Helping Hands could you please contact me on the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org .
Your help will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.
