Fathers’ Day Breakfast and Stall
When the P & F decided to introduce a Fathers’ Day Breakfast, we were not sure how it would go. In the end, we need not have worried! The initiative was extremely well supported, with 50 School Families booking tickets in advance. This translated into a great turn out of Fathers, Grandfathers and other special persons accompanying the children for the delicious food, coffee & hot chocolate on offer.
It was wonderful to see the enthusiasm amongst the attendees as they decorated the mural on the wall of the Multi-purpose Hall, completed Activity Sheets and took a tour of the classrooms. Another highlight was the Photo Booth sponsored by the Taouk, Gledden and Clancy families. The opportunity to pose for a fun family photo proved extremely popular. Our teachers’ generosity in opening the classrooms for guided tours conducted by the children is acknowledged and we thank the Coles and Woolworths stores in Kew for donating beautiful, fresh fruit.
Our Annual Fathers’ Day Stall, which followed, was once again very well supported. The children were delighted to have an opportunity to buy a present for Fathers’ Day before it was too late!
Such days don’t happen without the tremendous support of volunteers from among our School Community. Taking lead roles in planning, preparation and co-ordination on the day were Lisa and Anne-Marie (Breakfast) and Tiff and Mel (Stall). Lending them valuable, additional assistance for gift wrapping, set-up, breakfast service, clean-up and the manning of the stall were Sue, Louise, Fiona, Melina, Ann, Jocelyn, Melissa, Stav, Becky and Sarah. Thank you all very much!
