EVERY CUPPA MAKES A DIFFERENCE
We will be hosting a Biggest Morning Tea on Thursday 19th May at 11:00 am in our school hall. Every single dollar raised, makes such a life-changing difference in funding vital cancer research, prevention programs and support services for cancer patients and their families.
$150 provides transport and a night's stay at a local Cancer Council Lodge for people who need to travel for vital cancer treatment. $510 helps provide training to leaders of cancer support groups so they can offer emotional and practical support to those impacted by cancer. $1000 helps develop a blood test to monitor a patient’s individual response to cancer treatment.
We invite you and your family and friends to join with us at this Morning Tea on the 19th May at 11:00 am in our school hall.
A gold coin donation will gain you entry and a delicious morning tea. There is also the option of a QR code to make donation directly to our fundraiser.
We will also be having a Rebel Sports Hamper raffle on the day, so bring along coins. We would appreciate if school families could donate a plate of food for sharing.
Last week I attended the Year 5/6 Camp at Kyneton. It was a very good camp and the weather was fabulous on both days. The children were amazing and we had a lot of fun, as you will read in their recounts below.
The swimming/gym program commenced this week at the Ballarat Aquatic Centre. The children enjoyed their afternoon. Please make sure that all clothes are well labelled for future lessons. One child has come home with a long sleeved size 4 tshirt, when her tshirt was a size 8. Can all families please check their children's clothing.
Our Japanese Day was brilliant and we sincerely thank Sensei Buttler for her co-ordination of a wonderful day. There was cooking, games, a Japanese drumming exhibition and many other fun activities. Our children participated well and we thank that parents that assisted with the day.
Have a great week and thank you for your ongoing support.
Our students enjoy the Japanese Day.
