Mother's Day Stall

MOTHERS’ DAY STALL

Friday, 10 May

 The Mothers’ Day stall will be held on Friday, 10 May.  For those not familiar with the stall the idea is that each child brings to school a small item (worth around $4 to $8).  These gifts can be picked up from the supermarket as part of regular shopping. It is the spirit that is important and not the actual gift.  

Children are then able to purchase a present, other than the one they have brought in, for a nominal cost of $1 or $2.  

Please bring in your gifts to your classroom as soon as possible!!

We recommend a gift worth about $4 - $8.  Some ideas... chocolates, mugs,

books, toiletries, key rings, magazines, gardening stuff, DVD’s... The list goes on!  

It doesn’t have to be expensive, just thoughtful.

Please consider the environment when purchasing and wrapping your gift

** Father Helpers are also needed on the day (between 8.30am – 11.00am). 

Please call or text Mark Bauer on 0413 759 692 if you can assist.
