Father’s Day Stall & Raffle

The P & F are again coordinating the annual Father’s Day Stall for students to buy a special gift for Father’s Day. After the success of the Mother’s Day Stall, the Father’s Day Stall will also be conducted by your child’s teacher in their classroom.

The stall will be held on WEDNESDAY 2nd September  

We have a wonderful selection of gifts from $2 to $7. Please send some cash with your child on the day of the stall so that they can buy a gift. If your child is absent or forgets their money on the day of the stall, they will be able to purchase a gift on Friday 4th September. Students may also be offered the opportunity to buy a second gift provided that all students have had the chance to buy a gift.

The P & F are also holding a Father’s Day Raffle this year. Raffle tickets will be sent home soon.

Raffle ticket sales close WEDNESDAY 2nd September 2020.

The raffle will be drawn on: FRIDAY 4th September 2020.

The money raised by the Father’s Day Stall and Raffle will go towards the playground upgrade that has begun with the flying fox on the main oval and the creek bed water play area in the K/PP area. We thank you in advance for your support.

 

Movie Night

As we will be abiding by the 2 sqm rule and have social distancing and hygiene measures in place, the P & F have been given the approval to go ahead with the Movie Night in Phase 4 on FRIDAY 11th SEPTEMBER in the School Hall. We ask that all families bring a blanket to mark your area and maintain your family’s social distancing. All other details about the night will remain the same.

Bring the whole family, order your dinner and enjoy a fun and easy family night out! The movie will be ‘Secret Life of Pets 2’ as voted by our students. Doors open 5:30pm, with the movie starting at 6:30pm. Please make sure that you pre-order food and drinks so that you don’t miss out. Limited food and drinks will be available for purchase on the night. The ‘Candy Bar’ will also be available on the night. Tickets will be available at the door until we reach capacity. Please send your family’s order form into the school office OR email to pandf@mmccps.wa.edu.au .

Order forms are due by WEDNESDAY 9th SEPTEMBER.

Payment can be made by direct debit to the P & F account OR by cash. The P & F are abiding by the 2 sqm rule for this event and have completed the COVID 19 Infection Control Training course to ensure everyone’s absolute safety.
