Parents and Friend's News

The Spice is Right

Parents & Friends will hold a hot cross bun drive at the school on Wednesday, March 28 – that’s the day before the last day of term.

As in previous years, the buns will come from O’Heas Bakery and Deli, and this year will cost $2 each. Payment will be by cash on the day at the canteen.

Trivial pursuits

Parents & Friends is planning to hold a trivia night, probably to take place in Term 3. As an extravaganza of this scale takes a bit of organisation, the group is keen to hear from anyone who would like to join our organising committee to help make the event a great success. If you have skills or time to offer, email us at

Hotplate heroes

Volunteer numbers for the Farmers’ Market school stalls have been terrific this year, so thanks to all the Grade 1 families – and others – who have turned so far. For the February 24 stall, thanks go to Jemma with Baxter, Anna with Ethan, Luis with Mateo, Georgie and Pat with Eve, Liz with Ernie, Derek with Maebh, Tim and Janene with Henry and Millie, Briar and Dom with Oscar and Jenny with Max. (Ruzi apologises if anyone has been forgotten). Thank you, your help is, as always, greatly appreciated. The school stall will be there tomorrow (March 9).

Wake up and …

Smell the coffee. The P&F Coffee Morning kicks off again in the morning of next Friday, March 16, courtesy of the Vagabond Coffee van. All welcome.

Fresh faces

After a fierce and handsomely funded campaign, Tamara Heath and Jackie Hanson have been reelected as co-presidents, and Meredith Dimsey as treasurer of the Parents & Friends group. Kalissa Alexeyeff has decided to stand down as secretary, with Amelia O’Neill – mum of Louis (2C) and Rose (Foundation) to take on the role in 2018. Thanks to Kalissa for her two years of unwavering service to the group, on top of her many hours of volunteering.

Ruzi Duric will become the group’s delegate on the school council, replacing Kirrily Noonan. Thanks, too, to Kirrily for her many hours of service.
