Dear Parents and Friends,

The generous donation of $40,000 from Emily Hamilton MLA, will be

used to extend our patio area at the back of Atlantis block. This project

will commence on 10th September, weather permitting.

On completion, we will have aluminium picnic benches installed to

create a designated eating area for our Poseidon children during

recess and lunch time. We want to thank our P&C Association for

contributing $7,000 to this project as well.

We are so happy that Perth has been selected to host the AFL Finals

this year and we would like to fundraise with a Footy Colours Day

(Tuesday, 21 September) to purchase more aluminium benches for our

purpose built eating area. These are very expensive to purchase so

we would like to use the funds raised to ensure we have adequate

seating for all our Year 1 to Year 6 students to use during recess and

lunch times.

Footy Colours Day will have students wearing their sport/team/footy

colours to school with some Footy treats for sale at recess time and a

special lunch. Each student took home a lunch order form on Monday

30 August.

Students will not have to contribute a gold coin donation for wearing

their footy/sport colours, but we have organised for our students to

bring some Australian coins from home. We will

have a competition to see which class can make the

longest money chain on the Basketball court or the

undercover area after lunch on the day. All

proceeds will go to our fundraiser.

With best wishes

Fathers Day Stall The P&C will be again running the Father’s day stall from Tuesday 31st August to Friday 3rd September, just

in time for Father’s Day on Sunday 5th September.

Items from $2 to $10 will be available for students to purchase. We ask students to purchase one item to

start with, so there is enough for everyone. Students will have the opportunity to purchase other items on

Thursday at Recess.

So please help our P&C and school by sending your little ones to school with some spare change so they can

purchase something special for Father’s Day for that special Dad, Step Dad, Granddad or other male role

model in their lives.

Please note that this is a cash only event.

Wednesday September 1st:

10:20 - 11:00 The stall will be open for students that didn't get to

purchase an item on the Tuesday.

Thursday September 2nd:

9:00 Ms Sentonas Kindy Red

9:20 LDC Kindy Group 2

Friday September 3rd:

The stall will open during the Faction carnival IF there are items still

left for sale.

All parents are welcome to join the meeting in the Poseidon Primary staff room. Come along and become

part of a dynamic team and make some new friends with other parents in your community.

Have your say. Come along to the next General Meeting to see what is happening with your

P&C, and help us to decide where the funds we raise will be directed, help us make crucial

decisions or just listen to what is being planned for this term and beyond.
