Canteen Volunteers

Welcome back for 2018. The school canteen will start operating on the 16 February. There will be more about how the canteen operates in next week’s newsletter. In the mean time I am once again asking for volunteers. The canteen cannot run without the help of the wonderful parents and carers who are able to give a small amount of time. 

The canteen only operates one day a week and we need one person to help collating orders on Thursday mornings and two helpers on Fridays. The times are 9:00 to 10:30 on Thursday and 9:00 to 2.30 on Friday. HOWEVER, these times are flexible. If you are only free for 30 minutes on Thursday that would be wonderful; if you can spare an hour after dropping the kids off on Friday that’s fantastic; cannot start before 11.00 and need to leave at 1:00? Not a problem!

Please contact me to organise times on 0417 559 920 or 6224 1410 or leave your name in the office.

The work is not hard and I cannot emphasise how much your children will love to see you helping.

School Banking Update 2018
Starting this year, silver banking tokens will no longer be issued.
Whenever a student is eligible to order a reward, a rewards card wallet insert will be placed in their bank book.
The school banking portal online keeps an accurate tally of how many tokens each student has earned and then subtracts them whenever a reward is claimed.  It will not allow rewards to be ordered for any student until they have at least 10 tokens.  Multiple rewards can now be ordered per student at the same time.
For those students that still have silver tokens, these will no longer be accepted for claiming rewards.  Students may choose to keep their silver tokens, return them to school or dispose of them.  The number of tokens as per the school banking portal will be deemed as final for each student.
Students can either keep track of their tokens via the comm bank youth app or by contacting the school banking coordinators:
Tania Robinson 0408054839 or
Kirsten Adams 0409 516 510

Update 131217

Dear families
Please find below some information and reminders as we head into the last week of the school year!
Remember our school Carol’s tomorrow night! The School Association will have a BBQ and drinks on sale from 5pm and the Carols will start promptly at 6pm.  We expect to be finished at 7.15 so it won’t be a late night. This is our final whole school event for 2017 so we are looking forward to seeing everyone there!
This Friday our school choir has been asked to sing at Woolworths in Sandy Bay. Students will be walking down to Sandy Bay and will be delighting shoppers between about 11.30 – 12.30pm. You might like to go down and listen if you are out and about in Sandy Bay.  Thank you, Mr Eddleston for making this opportunity happen for our students, and for the wider community to be able to enjoy our fantastic choir!
Next Wednesday is our end of year school picnic at Glenorchy Pool. Busses will be leaving school between 9.15 – 9.30am so it is important that everyone is at school on time and ready to go! Students can wear plain clothes and we encourage everyone to wear bathers underneath clothes in the morning to save time when we arrive at the pool. Don’t forget to put dry underclothes in the bag though! All student should have sunscreen and a hat.  Students all need to have a t shirt or rash vest to wear while swimming to prevent sunburn.  It would be good if younger student have sunscreen applied before coming to school.  We would appreciate it if parents could remind older students that wearing sunscreen is essential!  The canteen at the pool will be open for snacks but students should bring their lunch and plenty to drink.
Finally, congratulations to Mrs Vince who received advice on Friday that she has been successful in obtaining a 1 year contract for a ‘Raising the Bar Closing the Gap’ Literacy/Numeracy Coach position at Huonville High for 2018. This is a contract position for one year so at this stage we anticipate that she will return to Albuera Street in 2019.  I know everyone will join me in wishing Mrs Vince a professionally satisfying and stimulating time in her new role.  I am in the process of working with our Human Resources staff to find a fabulous teacher to replace Mrs Vince for next year and will provide more advice as it becomes available.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Carols tomorrow night.
Kind regards.
