To the School Community,
As a parent of three children and a small business operator, I am excited to send this information to you as we start a new term.
During last term I have been part of negotiations with Nell Gray to provide our children with more affordable school uniforms. I am delighted to say we are able to provide a special price (while stocks last) on the school polo shirt of $15.00 which is great value and perfect for the winter months.
In addition the school shorts are now down to $12.00 and will be a sort after item for athletics and the warmer months to come.
Other items can still be purchased and the full uniform selection will be available from the school’s reception. Our mannequins in the office give parents a guide to sizes and we are able to provide a convenient service 5 days a week.
Operational cost running a full-time school canteen has been difficult in this current economic climate. I am pleased to announce a full time lunch service is being provided through a partnership with our local Food Works
store. Please see the school’s website for the menu. Coinciding with this change, our canteen manageress, Mrs Dann has won a full-time position at Dome.
Congratulations to Mrs Dann on her new role. We wish her all the very best for the future.
The change in operation to the school uniforms and canteen will enable the P&C to focus on its purpose of supporting the school with much needed funds to complete projects that benefit all our children.
At the next P&C meeting we will acknowledge the wonderful work of the previous P&C administration, elect a new Treasurer and celebrate Mrs Dann’s service and contribution to the school.
I will continue to serve the East Kenwick Community to the best of my ability and look forward to meeting many more families this year.
