P&C News Week 9

Congrats Kapinara Families – it’s almost the end of another school year ? Thank you for all your support of the P&C and the School in 2020, whether that’s with time, $$ or both, from the uniform shop and canteen to Quiz Night, the EOY concert, Easter Raffle, cake stalls, disco and so much more. Good luck to our year 6 families for whom this is their last year at Kapinara, welcome to all our new families, and see you soon to all the returning families – we wish you all a safe, healthy and happy festive season with family, friends and loved ones.

Uniform Shop

Today (Thursday 10 December) is the last day that the Uniform Shop will be open for 2020, though online orders can still be placed until 8am on Tuesday 15 December to be brought home by students or picked up from the front office before the end of term. The online order form can be downloaded at https://bit.ly/33XtsP1 The Uniform Shop will open again ahead of term 1 on Friday 29 January from 9:30am-11:00am. Email kapinara.uniform@gmail.com with any questions.


Tuesday 15 December will be the last day for canteen in 2020. Place your orders as usual via QuickCliq, and remember that any remaining cash balance in your QuickCliq account will carry over to 2021. You may notice that your preferred menu choices aren’t available – that’s because we’re running down our freezer stocks ahead of our end of term deep clean and switching off the freezers for the holidays. Sushi, teriyaki and toasted sandwiches won’t be impacted by this since they are made to order, but in the meantime enjoy the return (while stocks last!) of favourites such as zucchini slice and frozen yoghurt arrows.

Canteen Volunteers

A very huge and heartfelt THANK YOU to all those who have volunteered in the canteen this year. Without you, we quite simply cannot operate, so even one shift spent making toasted sandwiches or chopping fruit and veg for the go green bags means that we’re able to open on our usual Tuesday and Thursday and offer a more complete range of menu items.  More volunteers = more menu choices. 

We understand that not everyone is able to volunteer, whether due to work or childcare commitments. To that end, we’ll be sending out a short survey to get community input on what’s most important to you when it comes to canteen – staying open no matter what, a full menu offering, or low prices. Stay tuned!

Sundowner 2021

SAVE THE DATE for our annual Sundowner welcome event to be held early in term 1. Tentative dates are either week 3/Friday 19 or week 4/Friday 26 February – a family event on the oval with food trucks, bbq, live music and more. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details and a confirmed date, coming soon!

Class Reps for 2021

The role of class rep is not only crucial to the operation of the P&C and the support we provide the school, but an amazing way to meet and stay connected with other parents in your class and year group. Sign-up sheets for the role of class admin rep (1x per class) and social co-ordinator (2x per year group) will go up in time for the start of term 1 – please consider volunteering for one of these roles. It’s a minimum time requirement which really does make a huge difference. 

P&C Annual General Meeting 2021

Our AGM will take place on Tuesday 23 February (week 4) at 7pm in the School Library – anyone and everyone is welcome to attend! This is the meeting where we nominate and vote for office bearers, executive committee, and other valuable volunteer roles from canteen and uniform shop to playground maintenance, sustainability initiatives, and communications. If you are interested in finding out more, or have skills you think might be helpful (finance, accounting, project management, marketing, teaching, childcare etc etc) please email kapinarafamilies@gmail.com and we will be more than happy to chat with you.
