Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is that one day of the year when I know that I am going to be allowed to sleep for as long as I like. If you are anything like me however, that means until 7.30am with three or four wakes ups along the way and whispers of  ‘Happy Mother’s Day Mummy’. In saying that, I wouldn’t trade it for the world. This year I got to spend Mother’s Day with my beautiful children, but also with my own mother. I really believe you never truly appreciate your mum and the sacrifices that they make for you until you are a mum yourself. I hope that many of our Mums, Step-Mums, Grandmas and Nannas had a magical Mother’s Day and felt truly appreciated for all the support and love that they provide.

Again, this year for Mother’s Day I was spoilt with home-made presents from childcare and school along with some beautifully selected gifts from the Mother’s Day Stall. The options at the stall this year were endless. Drink bottles, necklaces, candles, key chains, coffee mugs and cookies and many more assortments of goodies. Of course, I’m sure my kids select the cookies so that they can be ‘shared’ with them.

A big thank you to our wonderful P&F team who always put in an amazing effort in sourcing and making such lovely items for the children to buy, plus everything else that goes into planning and holding the Mother’s Day Stall. We do have lots of fun doing this!! Another big thank you to all of our St Michael’s students and families who support our school by doing their shopping with us. We hope all the mums (and grandmas) out there enjoyed their personally selected gifts, but more importantly, some precious time with their families.

Donut Day

Yesterday the P & F hosted the very popular donut day. Once again it was a very successful day with the students enjoying some sweet treats while putting in a great effort fundraising for the school. Over 206 donuts were ordered raising $320. Thank you to the students and school for their support.

Donut Day – Wednesday 3 April

The P&F are excited to bring you the first Donut Day for 2019. 

This sweet treat is a favourite with the students and a fun and easy way for the school community to contribute to the fundraising for the year.

A form has been sent home with every student this week, but you can also download it here Donut order form – T1 2019-1wfp02i  By popular demand, cinnamon donuts are back on the order form, along with the old favourites, chocolate and sprinkles.  Please make sure you circle your preference. 

Forms and payment are to be returned to the school by the end of the day on Friday and donuts will be delivered to students on Wednesday 3rd at recess time.

Sports Day 2019

The P&F Committee were once again thrilled to be a part of St Michael’s Sports Day in 2019.

Whilst we weren’t out there sprinting or high jumping, we worked behind the scenes in the lead up to the event to source, organize and pack over 150 Snack Packs to keep our students well fuelled throughout the afternoon.

Thanks to the kind generosity of Hahndorf Fruit & Veg Market, we were also able to offer free fruit which proved very popular.

At the end of day we ran the Sausage Sizzle, serving countless sausages, drinks and snacks to hungry competitors and their families.

Thanks to the incredible support of our school community and congratulations to Zebra on the win.
