    Tea towel Fundraiser
    We will be asking the children to draw a self-portrait over the next few weeks. All the drawings will then be placed on a tea towel and made available to purchase towards the end of November. These are a great idea for Christmas gifts for family and friends!

    As the weather gets warmer please remember a sunhat and drink bottle every day. Children will continue to need a warm layer for outdoor play in the mornings.
    Sunblock needs to be applied by parents each morning. We will reapply to the children who are staying for the afternoon. If your child has sensitive skin or an allergy to sunblock we ask that you please supply your own sunblock to remain at Kindergarten.
    Please remember a spoon in your child’s lunchbox as needed.

    Would you be interested in taking Bluey home this term? He loves his adventures in the weekend so please put your name on the roster next week if you are able.

    As always if you have any queries please don’t hesitate to come as talk to us.
