Next term, on Friday 22nd July, we will be celebrating NAIDOC week. Students will participate in a variety of interesting activities over the day and are encouraged to wear free dress in the colours of the Aboriginal flag. We look forward to learning about the season of Makuru which is the coldest and wettest period of the Noongar six seasons
Next term the Book Week Parade will be held on Friday 19 August. The theme for this year is
‘Dreaming with eyes open’.
Please keep the costumes simple. There is no need to buy or hire costumes just use what you have at home or borrow something. This is meant to be a fun day celebrating books. We will have some great books on display that will be in the running to be one of the CBCA book winners.
If you have a child turning 4 years of age between 1st July 2022 and the 30th June 2023, they will be eligible to attend Kindergarten in 2023. Please put your enrolment form into the school office asap. We will be starting enrolments for Kindy 2023 in the next week.
The new Semester 1 CANTEEN MENU for 2022 is available on the MMCCPS website or alternatively if you require a hard copy, at the office or canteen. Please refer to this new menu ONLY, as many changes have taken place, with freshly made products.
The canteen operates on Monday, Wednesday & Friday. To alleviate using money, Mary MacKillop Catholic Community Primary School has an online ordering system for canteen orders. This enables a more efficient and effective service available to you and your family.
You can visit quickcliq.com.au to register.
Canteen tokens are available to purchase from the office or canteen at a cost of $32 per sheet. Lunch/recess order bags are available from the canteen, 20 bags for $1. Please ensure your child’s name and correct class are written clearly on bags. Separate bags must be written for recess and lunch. PLEASE DO NOT USE STICKY TAPE OR STAPLES TO SECURE LUNCH BAGS.
All lunch/recess orders must be placed in classroom baskets before the class commences. They will then be taken to the canteen. If your child is late, they are to take the lunch order directly to the canteen.
All prepaid drink orders from Yrs 1-6 are to be collected by your child at the canteen with their lunch order bags as proof of purchase.
Ice creams are then sold after the students are dismissed from eating their lunch. If ice creams are pre-ordered, the bag must be shown at the canteen when picking up the ice cream.
Please note, your child can purchase a drink or ice cream without pre-ordering if they have money.
Parents, please do not allow your children to buy icecreams for their friends and no large amounts of money should not be given to them. Thank you for your co operation in this matter.
If you wish to volunteer in the canteen please come and see me, we would love your help.
If you have any queries, please come and see either myself or Kath and we will be happy to help.
If you would like to purchase any second-hand uniforms, please contact Mrs Anita Andrews on 0412866588.
