On Saturday, a group of very special and very generous Mums, Dads, Grandparents , children and staff turned up to our annual BUSY BEE.
We collected rubbish from garden beds …. we shovelled mulch into garden beds and we pruned ….
Glenn, our Board Chair came along and helped us to get the job done in under three hours – many thanks Glenn!It was awesome to have grandparents there too – way to go and THANK YOU!!!
Janine and other parents covered books in the library while Mitchell (former St Emilie’s student) came back to lend a hand – thanks for your time Mitch!
These little helpers held shovels ready for dad to use, went for a wheelbarrow ride, drew lots of pictures and were great kids all morning!Chris and his children treated our bushland trees for dieback, and he has recommended the plants we need to plant on National Schools Tree planting day Friday 26 July.Shirley smiled her way through carting mulch and serving morning tea – thank you for all you did Shirley!
Connor is another former student , now in high school – and it was really great to see him too!
Thank you for all so much for your wonderful help everyone – many hands certainly did make light work and we are really grateful for your generosity of time and goodwill!
This busy bee saved Glenn a good two days work which means he can now complete other more important projects around our school.
What a great bunch of people!
We now need volunteers to help sell cakes, slices and a sausage sizzle outside our school hall on Election Day, Saturday 18th May.
St Emilie’s School Hall is being used as a voting venue and the P&F are running a Sausage Sizzle and cake stall to take advantage of the crowd of people that will be there to vote.
To be able to raise some money from people outside our community is such a great opportunity, but of course we NEED YOUR HELP to get this going.
We are therefore currently seeking at least 20 parent volunteers who would be happy to come along and help us on a roster to either cook snags, sell a sausage sizzle or a cake and a cuppa. Essentially you would be placed on a 2 hour time slot between 7.30am and 3.30pm.
We are also needing as many families as possible to bake some home made cupcakes, cakes, slices or bickies to sell on the day. These are to be dropped into the office.
More details will come home in this week’s Weekly Reminders 🙂
Thank you for your anticipated support everyone!
