Hi everyone!

Happy New Year!!
Hope you’ve all had a nice break and the kids haven’t driven you insane so far¬† ūüôā¬† ¬†ūüėĀ
Firstly, a BIG welcome to the new families for 2018!
Whether your child is beginning their first step into big school or transferring from another school, it’s always exciting and scary at the same time.
So if you have any P&C related questions, feel free to send us an email or message via our Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/mbps.pnc/
Uniform Shop – Mon 29th Jan

Regular open hours are Wednesdays, 9 am – 10 am during the school term.
Teas & Tissues – Mon 5th Feb
The P&C will be holding a Teas & Tissues morning tea to welcome all new parents and carers on Monday 5th February (first day Kindy starts).
It’ll commence straight after the students have filed into class.
Come along to the morning tea to meet other new parents, as well as some existing parents,¬†and ease your nerves over a cup of tea.¬†We all know that new parents can be more of a nervous wreck than their kids!! And maybe share tips & tricks to survive the next 7 years of big school!¬† ¬† ūüėĬ† ¬†ūüėā
