Hi everyone,

Your P&C would like to update you all on the following for Term 3, 2017:

    School banking is CANCELLED for this week only.
    School banking is very short of volunteers again. If you can assist for 1-2 hours on a Thursday morning the P&C can ensure this service remains going every week. It would be great to have enough volunteers to set up a rotating roster. Please come to the P&C office on Thursday morning if you can lend a much needed hand or email us with your availability. The P&C will have to cease this service if we are unable to get more regular volunteers – please spread the word, grandparents, aunts, uncles – ALL welcome to assist!!

Please visit our P & C website http://mbpspandc.org.au/banking/ for more information about banking.

School Banking is a fun, interactive and engaging way for young Australians to learn about money and develop good savings habits. Children who deposit money into their Youthsaver account through School Banking earn Dollarmites tokens, which they can save up and redeem for exciting rewards.

The rewards available during 2017 are:
· Cyber Handball
· Colour Change Markers
· 3D Chalk Set
· Tablet Case
· Smiley Emoji Keyring
· Volt Handball
· Pencil + Tech Case
· Epic Earphones

We encourage all of our students to open an account as this is another simple activity that helps contribute to P&C fundraising efforts.

Our school receives $5 when a student makes their first ever School Banking deposit and 5% on every deposit made through the school (to a maximum of $10 per individual deposit).

    The P&C will run a Father’s Day stall on Thursday the 31st August – we have a great range of reasonably priced gifts for our student shoppers. The P&C need volunteers to run this stall on the day – a few hours of your time would make a big contribution to our efforts. We would LOVE to see some of our Dads, Grandpas or Uncles. Please email us and let us know if you can assist.
    The next P&C meeting will be held on Wednesday,16th August, 6:30pm in the school library. Please come and join us to hear what is happening in and around the school. We welcome new faces.

Thank you to our parents who are using our online ordering system http://mbpspandc.org.au/uniform-shop/

We are still trying to deliver 1-2 times per week. Please remember to indicate if you would like the order delivered to your child’s classroom before you complete your order.

We also need more volunteers to keep our uniform shop open – please come and visit us on a Wednesday morning if you can assist. We only need an hour of your time and it’s a great way to support P&C fundraising efforts.
