Newsfeed Term 4 Week 10 

Uniforms and lost property
We have handed into the office some cuff links, children’s glasses and single key.  If you think they may belong to you, please stop by the office.
Very shortly, all of our school families will be assessing their children’s growth spurts and their requirements for new uniforms.  It can be heart breaking to see the amount of almost brand new pieces of clothing that come through lost property that cannot be identified and returned to its owner in a timely manner.
One way to rectify this is to ensure that clothing is clearly named before your child even wears it to school.  Iron on labels are available via many online providers, or alternatively a tube of puff fabric paint is another easy way to personalise and identify your child’s belongings.  A big bright puff paint name on the inside brim of a hat makes it identifiable by even the youngest of children, it can also make a great holiday art activity.
If you ever get the chance and have a look in lost property, it is now located near the gym.  Just follow the ramp to the bottom and there are some labelled cupboards in the alcove.

Fete news
Exciting news! The MSPS Fete is happening! It will be here at the school on Sunday March 15th 2020 – put it in your calendars now! This will be the biggest event our school has held in a decade. The aim is to bring the school community and local community together, showcase our amazing new facilities, and make sure everyone has fun! The Fete will include rides, live music, multicultural foods, games, entertainment, dunk tank and much more. Here’s the best bit: every single class will be involved on the day.
We are also excited to make this event as sustainable as possible – and our first project is to sew a whopping 500 reusable bags in collaboration with Boomerang Bags for visitors to buy and decorate on the day. The material kits are ready to be sewed, you can pick them up from school foyer. Upon completion, please return to the school office. 

The second project is collecting items (books, toys and clothes) for a preloved stall during the Fete. Should you have any items to donate, please place in the collection boxes are located in the school foyer.
