SAKG Kitchen/Garden request for empty 1.25 ltr bottles
The passionfruit in the school garden is finally growing well and the fruit is starting to ripen!  We need to protect the fruit.  We would love empty 1.25ltr plastic bottles which we can use to protect the fruit.   Please drop empty bottles at the school office.
Thank you very much!

Parents and Friends – Rare Bears Class Mates’ Play Date – Friday 15th February

A Rarebears after-school play session for Prep to Year 2 students will be held Friday 15th February from 3.45 to 7pm.  This special MSPS event is a great opportunity for families and class mates to get to know each other early in the year.   All tickets $8.  Thanks to the generous support of Rarebears, 50% of all ticket sales will be donated to MSPS. Food and drinks will be available for purchase and booking forms are attached to this newsfeed and at the office.

Please note, all children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian and pre-school siblings are welcome. 

Camp Australia
Bookings are now open for 2019 after school care with Camp Australia.  If families think they might utilise Camp Australia’s services during the 2019 year, they recommend that you register your child/children in advance. 
Why register? To attend our care, parents/guardians must register their child with us by completing an online enrolment form via our parent portal. It’s very important that parents/guardians fill out all compulsory enrolment documentation for their child and notify us of any medical conditions, illnesses and other, to ensure the health and safety of all children in our care.  Early registration means that you are ready to book your child in whenever needed without having to fill in the forms.
Families can register for free at

This can be paid via Compass/Course confirmation and payments in full or via payment plan.  Book packs will be passed out to students as payments are made.  If you are having financial difficulty please contact Paula Hogan, Business Manager at the school office to arrange alternate payment options.
