Skaterz Session

Skaterz Eltham hosted Eltham North Primary School for a free after school skate a couple of weeks ago and it was a great success. The rink was buzzing, with 108 kids (and parents!) strapping on their skates for 3 hours of rolling fun. Thank you to the crew at Skaterz for offering this free session to ENPS and for your ongoing support – it is greatly appreciated!

ENPS’s 2016 ‘Fantabulous, Fun Fete’

The PFA have been busy little bees behind the scenes planning the school’s Fete for next year. It is going to be a great, fun, community-focused event not to be missed, so please put this all-important date in your diary now: SATURDAY 5TH MARCH 2016.

As with any major event like this, planning and volunteers are the cornerstones of success. If you can spare an hour of your time to volunteer, please do so – just put your name down on the Fete roster that is currently circulating each class by your Class Rep.

You may also like to get involved by having your own market stall (selling crafty low-cost items sold by kids or parents). Or if you have your own business, you may like to have a Feature Stall. If you are interested in a:

·        Feature Stall to promote your business, please contact our PFA President, Melissa de Jonge at

·        Market Stall (best suited to selling low-cost and crafty items by kids or parents), please contact Kelly at

Places are limited, so be quick to ensure you don’t miss out!

We are also collecting donations for the Fete’s ‘White Elephant Sale’. A ‘White Elephant Sale’ is exactly like a Garage Sale, but on the school grounds. Donations for the Fete White Elephant Sale will be collected on Friday 11th December from 3-5pm. Full details will be available on Compass soon, so stay tuned to learn more about what you can donate on 11th December.

Finally, a big thank you to all students that kindly donated a *Lucky Jar* on Fete Free-Dress Day. Many fun, creative and generous *Lucky Jars* were received. It was great to see all classes and year levels contributing so many fabulous and imaginative jars. Your creations will be a fabulous highlight at next year’s Fete!
