P&C News Week 2

The lower playground slope work has been completed over the holidays and looks fantastic. The slope upgrade has been many years in planning, fundraising and obtaining quotes- a huge thanks to Jordy Veerman for all her hard work co-ordinating this. Thanks to all parents for ensuring children don’t play on the slope while the ground stabilises. The Kindy playground has had work completed during the holidays as well and is looking fresh and fantastic for the kindy kids to play in. Thanks to all parents for their support of the P&C to ensure we can fund these important tasks in the school. Please support the Entertainment Book fundraiser and the school disco which are currently selling tickets. Thanks also to the fabulous effort of all parents supporting the Pre Primary Easter Raffle- a total of $2418 was raised for Pre Primary!!!

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

School fundraiser – The school is collecting Woollies stickers again this year.  We have collection boxes in the office and there will be one down at Kindy as well. Stickers are to be placed on a sheet (these are at the office and at Kindy) and placed in the box and then we can earn to obtain resources for the school.  This will run from 1 May to 25 June, thank you.
