February Newsletter #2

Hi everyone, we just have some updates from our previous newsletter already lots of events have been planned some of which we really need your support with! 

Fundraising – Leigh Fishing Competition
On Saturday 17th of March, on the field of Leigh School, we are running a sausage sizzle/drink stall from 1-5pm and need a roster of parents to run this stall, for 1-2 hours. All food will be purchased we just require helpers on the day!   Also if you have 1-2 hours free on Friday evening to help prepare vegetables for the hangi at Leigh Hall.
 This is a great opportunity for fundraising targeting people out of our community,
Please see Carmel if you can help out.

Family BBQ Invitation
You are invited to our Family BBQ Night:- a great opportunity to meet with Elysia and Kym and our new families in the community
Friday 2nd March, 5-30-7-30pm
Sausages provided just bring along drinks and salads etc.

5+ A Day   as part of our term focus we are discussing this concept with the children. If you  would like to share the healthy meals/recipes that your children particularly enjoy,  bring them in -maybe we could use them at preschool.  Thanks

We are celebrating Purple Day with the children on Thursday March the 1st to commemorate the Haiti Earthquake. We will do some purple coloured baking and if the children could wear something purple, if they have it that would be great.
Raised Garden beds at Preschool;
We have planted out our hanging baskets and some of our flower bed.  If anyone has any flower or vegetable seedlings for the children to plant they would be really appreciated. This ‘hands on’ experience for children is truly valuable, they help us plan out where the plants go, plant them and then enjoy watching the plants grow – so it is an ongoing journey of learning for them.

Our AGM will hold place at the end of March, at Preschool, date to be confirmed.
We have several parents leaving the Committee and need 2 -3 new parents to come on board to attend monthly meetings and to support the teaching team.  If you are interested and would like to know more either discuss with Carmel or a current Committee Member – (Megan, Pam, Jade, Angela, Janine, Nakita, or Shara).
So A Big Thank You to these parents for giving up their time for our preschool !!
Without a dedicated team of parents to donate their time and individual talents we can not run the preschool - Everyone’s contribution is valued.

Library Visit  - Thursday 8th of March 9.00am: Once a month we plan this visit which is supported by the School – (April’s class and alternatively Rooms 1 and 3) we will need 3-4 parents to support this visit which lasts until 9-30am
