Canteen Menu gets Healthy Approval

A new canteen menu was sent home last week. This menu is a significant one as it has taken all last year to create with research and guidance from Sunraysia Community Health Services and The Healthy Eating Advisory Service of Australia. All of our recipes and food items have been assessed and passed in accordance with our Healthy School Initiative. This means our menu has lots of nutritious meals while still managing to keep some of our children’s favourites. We are very proud of this menu and family feedback is always welcomed. We hope you take the time to look it over and maybe try something new. Our recipes are available at the canteen if you wish to try one at home.

MWPS Being Healthy Together

Healthy lunches and snacks are very important for active, growing children. Eating healthy food helps children concentrate and learn better in the classroom. It also provides children with the necessary energy to get through a busy school day. Please refer to the handout in this week’s newsletter for some tips on healthy snacks and lunches you could put in your child’s lunchbox.

SCHOOL PHOTOS

Academy Photography will be at school on Friday 28th February for School Photos. Please make sure that students are at school nice and early as the photographer will begin at 9am. All students are required to wear full School Uniform.

Each child has an individually named photo envelope to take home.

  • If your child did not receive an envelope, please collect a blank order form from the school office.
  • Family Photo order forms are also available from the school office.
  • All students need to return their envelope whether they order photos or not.
  • The office will collect orders up until 8.30am Friday 28/2/20.

There are 2 ways to pay for photos

  • Pay online at www.academyphoto.com.au using the individual code that appears on your order form (students will still need to bring the order to school)
  • Send cash or cheque, along with your order in the supplied envelope.  You must have correct money, as the photographer will not have change.

The school cannot accept EFTPOS or BPay in this case, as the money goes to the photographer on the day.

Parent/Teacher/Student Meetings

PLEASE jump on COMPASS and book a time to come to school and tell the teacher all about your child. If you have trouble with COMPASS please contact the school office and we will sort it out. I do hope everyone can come. If the times do not suit you, please contact the teacher to negotiate an alternative.

 

Have you booked a time to meet your child’s teacher?     

  • Wednesday 19th February (Prep meetings only)
  • Tuesday 25th & Wednesday 26th February (Grades 1-6)

You know your child best. Please come and tell us about him/her
