Our school photo day is coming! This week (Week 6) every student in years 1-6 will receive a Kapture Photography order envelope to bring home. The recommended method of ordering your photos is online through Kapture’s website as your payment is secure and can be easily verified at any time. Alternatively you can pay by cash and return the provided envelope to the school on the photography day. If you place your order online please return your envelope to the photographer on the day.
You have the remainder of the current year to order, 5 days after photography a late fee will apply. Please check the website.
You also have the option to order a sibling photo package online, however please be aware there may be a limited number of sibling orders that can be placed due to time constraints on photo day. We suggest you place your online sibling order the moment you receive your personalised envelopes.
All students will be photographed individually on photo day for school administra on records AS WELL as included in their class group photo available for purchase to all families. Should there be any reason why your child should NOT be included in the photo shoot –please contact the school office.
Thank you to all who have volunteered to help in the canteen for Term 1. The canteen is able to run smoothly with the help of so many volunteers.
Pizzas will not be able for lunches in Term 1. Sushi and Rice paper rolls are still available on Wednesdays as is Subway for Friday's. Just a reminder to make sure you update existing accounts with the correct class room details for 2017, otherwise the lunches will go to the wrong classrooms.
For new families to the school or parents of Pre Primary children, lunches can be ordered through the Our Online Canteen www.ouronlinecanteen.com.au/ website by setting up an account. Lunches are available Wednesday and Friday, with the canteen being open for ice cream sales as well. Ice creams range from 50c -$2.00. No amount greater than $5 can be changed. From Year 1 the children are able to come to the canteen. Lunches will be delivered to the Pre Primary classes.
