Our favourite Fundraiser!! Teatowels 2018


It’s on again! Our absolutely favourite fundraiser! The P & C is once again running our fabulous Tea Towel Fundraiser! This was immensely popular in 2014 and 2016 and we have had requests to run it again!

Not only is it a wonderful memento of the kids school year but it gets them involved and provides a meaningful gift for parents, friends and grandparents. Each child will draw their own picture in class which is then collated into one tea towel per year!

The tea towels are just $15 each and can be purchased by returning the order form with payment to the Canteen in an envelope clearly labelled “Tea Towel Order” or paying online via Flexischools or direct deposit to our account (see details below).

Please note that when ordering a teatowel for each of your children that you order for the year they are enrolled in e.g. Sam is in KV you must order for Kindy, Bonny is in 1C order for Year 1.

Sample Teatowels are on display in the Canteen!

A copy of the order form is available here: Parent Letter Teatowels 2018.

Attention all Year 4 Students, Parents and Carers! As Year 4 will be attending Camp on the day of the Mother’s Day Stall, we have arranged for a special Mother’s Day Stall to be held on Monday 7 May 2018. This will allow Year 4 students to choose and take home their gifts (no peeking girls!).

For those wishing to choose a gift, your payment/s must be received prior to 9:00 am on Monday 7 May 2018 so that we can account for both payment and the gift.

Mother’s Day Stall 2018



Mother’s Day is fast approaching! Every year the P & C holds a Mother’s Day Stall where the children get to pick a lovely gift for Mum, Grandma, Nanna and if you are lucky a favourite Aunt or just that extra special girl in their life! All gifts are $5.00 again this year…

Our Mother’s Day Stall is a pre-paid system whereby each child must return the Mother’s Day Collection Slip (to be sent home shortly!) with their $5 payment. Children can purchase more than one gift if they wish.

The Collection Slip and payment can be returned to our lovely P & C representatives who will be collecting in the Year 6 Seating area (next to the Canteen) from 8:30 am to 9:00 am daily commencing on Tuesday 1 May 2018 thru to Wednesday 9 May 2018. Monies and collection slips can also be left in the Canteen after these hours.

Please ensure that you clearly record your child/children’s name class and amount! If you are sending in money with just one child, please make sure that the names and classes of ALL siblings are recorded on the Collection Slip!

You can even indicate if you would like a receipt to be sent to you as a text!

Please note that for the Year 4 Camper’s we will be arranging a special day for you to choose your gifts so your monies and collection slips will need to be returned earlier (Monday 7 May).

On the day, each child will be able to choose the gift/s of their choice from the Stall. Their teacher will bring each class to the Hall and we will mark off their names from our receipted list.

Volunteers Please!

The Mother’s Day Stall is one of our most popular and favourite stall’s to Volunteer for! This year we need a few extra volunteers both to help on the day (Thursday 10 May) and to help sort, tag and wrap gifts for the stall.

We have set aside a day for the “Big Wrap” which is Saturday 5 May 2018 from 10:30 am in the School Hall. Morning Tea will be served!
If you wish to volunteer for the Stall or the Big Wrap, just do so via the Collection Slip!

Questions? Simple, just email fundraising@tackingpointpandc.org.au or inbox us!

Update 9/4/18:

A copy of the Mother’s Day Note was sent home with your child this week so please check your childs/childrens bag! A copy is provided here for you to download, print and return!

Canteen Summer Menu Term 1 2018

Hi all!

Just to let you know that our Summer Menu Term 1 2018 has been updated. Please download a copy of the current menu and discard any previous menus.

There are only two changes to the Menu:

  1. Removal of home-made slushies
  2. Addition of Slush Puppies

As advised in our December Newsletter:

“Slush Puppies” are coming!

At our August P & C Meeting, the Committee approved the installation of a Slushie Machine for a trial period. Presently, we offer “home-made slushies” at a very cheap price but at a huge resourcing cost. Our slushies are both a time-consuming process and ineffective way of producing a popular item that sells out quickly! We simply cannot keep up with demand.

In installing a slush puppie machine, we are looking to produce slushies that are healthy (made from apple juice from a supplier that is HKA approved with a 4.5 Health Star rating), readily available and cost effective. The Slushie Machine will offer three different flavours at a price of $2.00 per 250ml cup. We realise that this is quite an increase in price from what we currently offer however we believe it will be of great benefit.”

Since the introduction in Term 4 2017, the slush puppies have been a huge hit and the kids just love them – especially on these hotter summer days.

If you have any feedback or comments regarding the change, please let us know!

Cheers and thank you
