P&C News 18.7.21

Hello to all our families, and welcome back to Term 3. We hope you’ve enjoyed a safe, healthy and relaxing school holidays ??? and look forward to seeing everyone back at school this week.

Canteen Updates: Now WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY each week

We hope you’ve seen the previous updates, but if not – our canteen opening days have changed for Term 3. We’ll now be open Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays instead of Tuesdays and Thursdays, effective immediately, starting this week. As you may have heard, we made this change in response to feedback from the parent survey conducted by the school in term 2, which indicated that parents would be more likely to volunteer in the canteen if it was open on different days. So that’s what we’ve done ?

Unfortunately, we as yet have NO VOLUNTEERS for weeks 1, 2 or 3 which will potentially mean we have to limit our food offerings or not open at all 🙁 If you can help – any week, on any of our opening days – you will be welcomed with open arms! We have 2x shifts available each opening day – 8:45am-10:45am, and 10:45am-1pm, and need 2x volunteers per shift. If you can do one shift, your kids will get a free recess; if you do both shifts on one day, your kids will get a free lunch.

Canteen Refurbishment Works starting soon

The P&C is grateful for all the support from our community for our fundraising activities so far this year which means that we’re at last able to invest in some long overdue infrastructure upgrades in the Canteen. Starting in early August, we’ll be installing new fridges and freezers, a new larger oven, and generally making the most of the space we have to hand. These days we’re serving more than 200 recesses and also lunches a day, far more than the current kitchen space was designed to cope with. While we can’t make the space any bigger, we can make it work more efficiently. A huge thanks to canteen manager Kirsten Piccinini and Mel Capper from our P&C for researching what was needed, as well as the school for helping us secure the best deals we could. Stay tuned for updates and photos coming soon!
