Can we ask you a favour?

GOOD NEWS: The Eastwood Spring Fair is on Saturday the 27th August 2016.

It is time to celebrate with our fantastic school community and have loads of fun at the same time. Everything went smoothly at our first Spring Fair committee meet and we are looking forward to another great community event this year. It is really nice when a plan is coming together :-)\

Most of last year’s committee members and stall holders have already jumped on board… and they’re all getting their act together. Plus they’re quickly building a really fantastic community of Spring Fair Committee and Stallholders.

But we do need a favour: We still are a few stallholders short and a crucial committee role is still vacant so it is all the more important that parents put their hands up for these roles this year.
Without these people, the Spring Fair will miss on some traditional favourites. And we will end up losing not only some vital school funds, but also end up disappointing a bunch of people in our Eastwood community who really look forward to these stalls. So we really need your help to take charge of these stalls
Here’s the list of Committee roles and stall holders we need urgently –
Sponsorship (Committee Role)

  • Indian Food
  • Chocolate Wheel
  • Stalls Tea and Coffee
  • Ice Cream Gelato
  • Toys
  • Plants
  • Chinese Food

MORE GOOD NEWS: You do not need any experience to take these roles. And we’ve got some really wonderful parents to help you out even if you are completely new to take on these roles. For many this is their last year in school and they eagerly look forward to connect with new parents who they can pass this on to. All of these roles if shared evenly will not take much of your time. There are just three meetings in total and they are only for 30 minutes.
We request you to step up to help and join our Spring Fair community so we can together create another great event for our school and our children.
If you want to take on one of the roles above then simply contact me on 0424480613 or email shilpa@shilpa.me

Donations of potted plants

Plant stallOne of our popular stalls is the plant stall and items sell quickly. We are asking if you have any lovely potted plants that you are willing to donate to our stall. If you have potted plants that you are happy to donate please leave them around the corner from the office door next to the bike racks on Friday mornings.
We are also after donations of small unbroken pots which can be left in the same location.

Spring Fair Newsletter

Spring Fair is an important fund raising activity for Eastwood Public School and allows us to raise money which will be used to directly provide resources for our school and improve your child’s education. Spring Fair also provides a valuable connection to the local community with many local businesses donating goods and funds. Please consider giving your time to assist in making the day a success.

Please keep an eye out for upcoming dates around mufti days and second hand goods collection days.

Cake stall helpers needed

Cake stall helpers needed

Our Cake Stall on Spring Fair day, 29th August needs your support! We rely on parents to provide us with homemade cakes, muffins, slices, biscuits or your own traditional cultural cakes/cookies to sell at the Stall. We understand that everyone is very busy but please spare sometime, even just an hour or two, to contribute. Remember, people come to this great school community event to buy homemade products so please do not purchase commercially made cakes/ slices.

It is very important to label all your cakes/slices and to indicate whether it contains NUTS. NB: We will not be able to sell your product unless we know what it is.
To minimize wastage of cake trays, the Cake Stall will leave trays for collection as needed in the school office. Please only take what you will need.
Any baking should be delivered to the P&C room/Uniform Shop on the 28th of August (Friday) for our volunteer parents to wrap and present for sale on Saturday at the Spring Fair.

If you have any questions, please call Lydia Fung 0433 577 611 or email: sampras880@hotmail.com. Thank you in advance for your help and support. It is greatly appreciated
