Holy Family Fete-Stall Coordinators Needed!

The Holy Family Fete is in need of some passionate and enthusiastic volunteers to assist in coordinating a stall.  Being a coordinator is an easy and fun way to be involved. You will have the Committee behind you to help and guide you and also volunteers on the day to assist in running the stall. 

The role of a stall coordinator is to gather items required for the stall, pack and price items, and assist in the set-up and pack-down of the stall. If you would like to volunteer as a coordinator, please email HolyFamilyFete@gmail.com. Stalls requiring coorindators are:

* Book stall - all books will be donated

* Craft stall - some craft items will be donated but if you or a few friends are crafty, it's a good excuse for craft and a catch-up

* Devonshire tea - scones have been donated 

* Food/International Cuisine - in previous years it's been Greek, however we are open to ideas and it can be whichever cuisine is your forte.

* Party clothes/dress ups - items will be donated

* Another stall in mind? We would love to hear from you!

Remember, the Fete can't run without the help and assistance of parents, so please consider signing-up to help raise funds for your children/ren's school. Once we have confirmed coordinators for stalls, we will be sending out a request for volunteers to help with the stalls.

P&F Meetings 2022

We would love to see some new faces join us on the P&F Committee this year. We welcome new ideas and strategic thinking or if there's anything you'd love to bring to the table, we would really love to hear from you. It's a very rewarding experience and an easy way to be involved and keep informed about what is happening in our school community. 

The last P&F Meeting was held on Wednesday, 11 May 2022

See Meeting Minutes, Principal's Report, Co-Presidents and Parent Ambassador reports below.

Canteen News

Volunteers Needed

If you are looking to get more involved in the school community and can spare any time to help prepare and serve food at our canteen, we would very much appreciate a hand. Our canteen can only run with the help of a network of volunteers from our school community working together.  

Its easy and fun work with on-the-job training and you can dedicate as much or as little time as you like. We have two important shifts “The Power Hour” and “The Hot 30” but any time that you have we are happy to find you something to do.

Please have a look at the Signup Sheet link and see where you can help. All volunteers’ efforts are rewarded plenty of tea or coffee and lots of conversation.

If you are able to lend a hand in the canteen over the next few weeks, opportunities are now open. Please click on the link above to go to the sign-up sheet and see where you can help:
