Prep Fairy Tale Ball

Thursday, September 11, 2014 1:27 PM
This term the Foundation students are learning about fairy tales in our Rich Project ‘Once Upon a Time.’ We will be celebrating our learning with a Fairy Tale Ball on Friday 19th September (the last day of Term 3). Students are asked to dress up as any fairy tale character and to bring in a plate of food to share at the ball. Ideas for food can be: Fruit (we can cut up in the morning), vegetables such as cut up carrots or zucchini, ham or other deli meats, dip & biscuits, cupcakes, chips, popcorn. If you find it difficult to get a costume please come and see us as we have some costumes we can lend. But be creative – make swords, crowns, capes etc.  If there are any parents that would like to help out in the morning before the ball please let your classroom teacher know. This may include setting up tables and chairs and preparing food. There will be no need for students to bring lunch on this day – there will be plenty of food. School will still finish at 2:20pm on this day.

The junior school Melbourne Zoo excursion for students in Foundation and Years 1&2, is fast approaching, and will be held on Friday 14th November (A14-A16) and Friday 21st November (A10-A13).  A payment instalment plan is available with the first instalment of $15 due on Thursday 19th September. This should be sent to the school with a signed copy of the permission form. The second instalment of $20 is due by Friday 17th October. Final payment of $20 is due by Friday 31st October.  Wendy will not be accepting payments after 31st October. This is to allow time to re-confirm the bus and zoo entry. Students who have not paid the full amount by 31st October will not be attending. Full payment is $55. Unfortunately, due to the bus fare being costed across the whole Junior School, the amount of $40, is non-refundable.
