The P&C has recently approved several projects for funding within the school. Thank you to all parents for your  payment of the P&C levy, supporting the Easter raffle, cake stalls and other fundraisers. This is what the funds have assisted with so far this year..:

  • A Pre Primary work/ play bench has been purchased
  • 4 Lego EV3 Robots have been purchased for use in the classrooms
  • Guided reading material and books for Years 1-3 have been purchased
  • Sound proofing of Classroom 11 has been completed
  • The Kindy and Pre Primary playgrounds will be refreshed and enhanced, funding for this has been approved.

A reminder that the Easter Egg raffle tickets are due back at the latest on Thursday 11th April. Winning tickets will be drawn at assembly on Friday 12th April.

Urgent- Uniform shop:

A big thank you to the lovely Claire for all her work and volunteering in the uniform shop over the last 3 years. Claire is no longer able to volunteer in the uniform shop from Term 2. The P&C is seeking two parents interested in being volunteers in the uniform shop to assist our fabulous uniform rep Nikki. Please speak to the uniform reps or reply to this email if you are interested as soon as possible. Thank you!

Winter clothing is available now as the weather cools down, the uniform shop is open Tuesday and Thursday mornings 8.30-9am.

Kapinara School Disco – June 7th 2019

The year 6 parents and students would like to invite all students from Kindy to Year 6 to the school’s annual disco Friday June 7th upstairs at Floreat Beach Surf Club.  The Junior disco (Kindy to Year 2) will run from 5.00-6.30pm and the Senior disco (Years 3 to 6) from 7.00-8.30pm. There will be a fun theme, DJ, decorations, food and drink included in your ticket price.

Floreat Beach Surf Club is a fantastic and secure venue that provides plenty of space for the children to move and the DJ to set up. The area is fully lockable downstairs so no child is able to enter or leave the premises without being signed off on the attendance register.  The senior students will enter through the front door for their disco whilst the younger children will be taken to the back courtyard to await pickup with year 6 parents as supervisors throughout the evening.  Please note that the disco is fully supervised by Year 6 parents who will be easily identifiable.  Bathroom and kitchen facilities are all within the complex so there is no need for anyone to exit once they have been signed in.
This is an off school grounds experience which makes it extra exciting for the kids. However, if your child feels uncomfortable being left alone any parent is welcome to come up to the balcony area to stay and watch (younger siblings are also welcome). 
The school disco is a major fundraiser for the Year 6 students and the money raised goes towards their camp and graduation activities. So please put the date in your diary and support our Year 6s.

Further information will be sent out closer to the event.
With thanks from the Year 6 Disco Planning Committee.  If you have any questions to be fielded to the committee, please feel free to contact Danielle Huljich on 0429 884 033 or email daniellehuljich@hotmail.com

The P&C are seeking a parent who is interested in being the Parent Rep Co-ordinator for the P&C. Please speak to a P&C member if you are interested.
