Tricia Ritchie - Business Manager
Canteen Assistant - Position Vacancy
Our Canteen is busy and thriving. Lunch orders and daily sales have increased. The Canteen continues to provide healthy food options to our students and staff, and also caters for school events and functions.
To assist our amazing Canteen, the Canteen subcommittee has endorsed the proposal to offer a short term paid casual contract. This paid position will aim to assist Sally and Pam for up to 6 hours per week on a rotating roster.
We are seeking “Expressions of Interest” directed to Jason Munro, Principal, from anyone who is interested in this paid casual position. Applications are now open, and close at 3:00pm on Thursday 1st July.
As we head towards the end of Term 2, we wanted to say a big THANK YOU for your support and generosity with regards to the fundraising events we have held so far this year. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again … we couldn’t have done it without you!
Since our last newsletter, we have received a number of fundraising purchasing requests, from students, staff and parents – this is great, so please keep them coming! The support and generosity we have received from the school community has allowed us to already allocate funds towards a wide range of items. For instance, performing arts resources and equipment, flexible seating options for classrooms, plus new sandpit toys for Yard A. If you are interested in submitting a request, you can submit a request online via the Fundraising page on the new school website.
Our Winter Warmers Wine Drive was a great success – thank you to everyone who ordered a few bottles (or more!) to get you through the colder months. Your support helped us raise funds that will go towards developing a Jacaranda outdoor learning space.
Looking forward, Term 3 will see our biggest fundraising event of the year taking place – the annual WPPS Quiz Night on Saturday, 28th August. This years’ theme “Night at the Museum” will surely set the scene for a great night out! Event details will be sent out via SkoolBag/Schoolzine and there will be more information coming out over the coming weeks. (Check out our Save the Date below). Stay tuned …
Thank you again, for your support, involvement, and enthusiasm!
The WPPS Fundraising Committee
