PFA Annual General Meeting (AGM)

The PFA AGM will be held on Tuesday 10 November at 9am in the staffroom. The AGM gives us an opportunity to reflect on the year, celebrate achievements and acknowledge all the hard work and support provided by parents at ENPS. It is also an opportunity for more and new folks to come along, meet other parents and get involved in upcoming PFA events.

We look forward to seeing you there!

 Fete Free-Dress Day: Friday 13th November

As you know, our second Fete Free-Dress Day will be held on Friday 13th November.

Students are invited to wear casual clothes to school on this day. We would like to ask each student to donate one *Lucky Jar* on this day toward our 2016 school fete, please. Lucky Jars not only support our school values to reuse and recycle, but are also lots of fun to create and win!

Creating a *Lucky Jar* is easy. Simply, wash an empty jar from home. Make sure it is completely dry and odour-free before filling it. Fill it with small, inexpensive and non-perishable goodies (some ideas include badges, novelty erasers, bubbles, shoe laces, hair ties, stickers, pencils, crayons, marbles, footy cards, craft items, etc). Decorate the jar if you like, or leave it plain. Pop on the lid and bring it to school on Friday 13th November for Fete Free-Dress Day. It’s that easy!

*Lucky Jars* are hugely popular at school fetes and are an inexpensive but fun prize for children. To win a *Lucky Jar* children buy a raffle ticket for $2 and win the jar (and its awesome contents) with the corresponding number. It’s that easy!

We would like to thank all families and students in advance for your kindness, generosity and support of this day and of the 2016 school fete.

 Icy Pole Days

With summer just around the corner, don’t forget to pop $1 in your child’s school bag so they can enjoy a lovely refreshing lemonade icy pole. We are holding three Icy Pole Days this term: 

·        Wednesday 18 November,  Wednesday 25 November, and  Wednesday 2 December
