MUFFIN BREAK IS GIVING 8 LUCKY SCHOOLS IN AUSTRALIA THE CHANCE TO WIN UP TO $3,000 AND 1,000 MUFFINS FOR THE SCHOOL TO SELL TO RAISE FUNDS!
Calling all mums, dads, uncles, aunties and grandparents!
Thank you!! 🙂
As you know, we continue to rely on the goodwill and generosity of people in the school community to assist us with our ongoing fundraising efforts for the good of all here at St Emilie’s. The great thing about this fundraiser is that we are able to sell and raise money from the wider community! If you are unable to help us out behind the stall perhaps you could come and buy a yummy sausage sizzle on your way into Bunnings! 🙂
The last BUNNINGS SAUSAGE SIZZLE for the year is happening on Saturday 8th November and we would really appreciate any assistance you might be able to offer us – many hands make light work and it would be great to see some new faces too!
All we need you to do, is please contact the School Office by email:
Subject box: Sausage sizzle / name / time slot / contact number
(and then add any other details or questions in the body of your email) or phone the Office on 92569696 with the above info and it will be forwarded to myself. I will then contat you and confirm your time and what you need to do.
If you have just one specific time slot only that is fine, but if you’re flexible with the time slot – that would be very much appreciated.
We need at least 3 people for each shift.
The sooner you can reply to this request the better as the time will disappear quickly for organising all the details. Many thanks!

Thank you so much to all these wonderful P&F parents who turned up for our Week 7 P&F Meeting this week! With a new baby and a young child in tow, these special young Mums have been committed to practically helping out, planning and supporting P&F initiatives this year, as well as giving valuable feedback. We are very appreciative of all their efforts and for being the generous, thoughtful, hard working and good humoured people they are! Minutes of meetings are being sent to Class Reps, who are charged with emailing them out to class families. Bravo to all families who got behind our Quiz Night last Friday night – a great night!
A HUGE THANK YOU to one and all for helping to make our P&F QUIZ NIGHT on Friday evening such a great success!
To Mums, Dads, family members, friends and staff members who formed our 24 tables of 8 – it was really wonderful to have your support for what was both a fund and a fun-raiser for our whole school commuity! To see you relaxed, happy, and collectively wracking your brains for some of those tricky answers that were right on the tip of your tongue, while really enjoying each others company, was just wonderful! By all accounts, there were some impressive singing and dancing performances throughout the night (and a few that, well let’s just say, reinforced the fact that it is probably not the right time to give up day jobs just yet!)
To our P&F executive – Alison, Karen, Tina – congratulations and a special thank you on organising a fabulous event. To have secured Luff and Barber’s sponsorship, which covered Jon Lennon’s services, was a terrific idea. Jon did a really fabulous job keeping the evening rolling along smoothly, with plenty of fun in between!
To all the Mums, Dads and staff who assisted in both big and small ways, whether by attending a planning meeting; donating a prize; seeking out sponsors; chasing up prizes; buying a ticket; encouraging a friend to come along; shopping for the night; ferrying gear to the hall; decorating the hall; assisting with child-minding ; serving at the bar and more … bravo and thank you!
Meanwhile back at the Multi-Purpose Room ranch was where you would have found 53 children, half a dozen staff, beanbags, rugs, milo’s, jelly cups, fairy bread, marshmallows, colour-ins, board games and two movies! The kids were really well behaved and had a fun time together with friends and brothers and sisters at their school slumber party!
A special thank you to those who made the supreme effort to stay and pack away the hall – I was so happy and grateful when I returned after helping to bundle all our little treasures into the arms of waiting Mums and Dads. To find everything packed up and tidy was truly the best thing ever! To those who also popped back on Saturday morning to remove the bags of rubbish – your generosity of time and thoughtfulness was yet another example of what makes our school special.
