Dear Parents, Carers and Friends,
Melrose Primary School would like to acknowledge the fundraising committee, staff and students for supporting events like the States School Spectacular, individuals and families in need and community event like our toilet upgrades. This demonstrates a combination of our Values and EQ pillars. Friday assemblies will allow parents, carers, family and friends to see the three pillars in action.

EQ Pillars:

Thank you Melrose Community:

Melrose Primary School’s community values and behaviours were evident and appreciated during the Crazy Hair day. This whole school fundraiser was to support Seth and his family during an ongoing family challenge. I would like to thank the families, students and staff who dressed up or donated to the very worthy cause.
A message from Seth and family 
In January 2017 Seth was diagnosed with a Pilocytic astrocytoma, a low grade brain Tumour usually solved with surgery.  The position of his Tumour creates other issues most notably hydrocephalus (fluid in the brain) and so far Seth has resulted in 3 surgery’s to control this. Overall he has fought through 6 surgeries 12 rounds of chemo and multiple hospital admissions. Luckily he is a fighter and has conquered it all. 
On behalf of Seth and our family I would like to say thank you to all for your support we could not do it without your help! All donations will be going towards Seth’s medical care and upcoming appointments in Melbourne. 
We feel so lucky to be a part of the Melrose family. Thank you!

Fathers Day stall:
On the 30th August, in preparation for Father’s Day on the 2nd of September, is the Melrose Primary School Father’s Day stall. This is an opportunity to purchase a gift that lets fathers and carers know how they have supported us through our life journey. 

Pick My Project:
Pick My Project is a Victorian Government community grant initiative.  Recently Melrose Primary School has placed in a submission for this program. The grant submission is to upgrade the student toilet facilities. The more votes we get the greater the chance we have of completing this project.
Please follow the steps to vote and support our submission.
