Get your stickers in soon! Our time is nearly up!
Our Preschool has been shortlisted for the Whitehorse Leader Local Grants competition to assist in funding an upgrade to Lily and Rosie’s enclosure.
The grants are awarded to the projects which receive the most votes, so please share on social media and encourage your people to vote- whether they are directly or remotely related to the preschool.
To vote, you simply need to register and log in to the Leader website (www.leaderlocalgrants.com.au)
Click on the “finalists” link in the menu at the top of the screen, and you will see a full list of finalists which can be filtered via the drop down menu for 'Whitehorse Leader'.
Select our project 'Preschool Guinea Pig Enclosure – Blackburn Pre-School'.
You can then assign 10 votes via a green voting panel but clicking it 10 times. Check that you have used all of your votes as the website is a bit clunky.
We’re up against schools with lots of voting power so please share with your networks on social media and via email.
Voting is open between the 17th and 28th June 2019.
WORKING BEE COMING!
Saturday 11th May at kinder!
We’d love to see you and your tools to spruce up the kinder for our Open Day the following week!
Our wonderful Friends of Blackburn hosted a brilliant morning tea for us on Friday morning in an effort to raise money for the Cancer Council. Thank you to Kate, Lisa and their team who worked hard to host this beautiful morning. We know that the funds raised will go towards helping many families.
Hope you all had a lovely Easter and have settled back into term 2 hassle free.
The wonderful earn and learn program has one again returned to Woolworths from now until the 25th of June. For those not familiar with the program, for every $10 you spend at a Woolworths store you get a sticker. Each sticker equates to $1 for the kinder to put towards educational products. In previous years Blackburn Preschool have managed to gain a number of valuable resources our kids are now enjoying during their sessions.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
Shop at Woolies and collect your stickers. You can either drop your stickers directly into the Blackburn Preschool boxes located at Blackburn South, Brentford Square and Blackburn North Woolworths stores or bring them along to the kinder and pop them in the box located next to the sign in book. If you feel like filling in a sheet you can also find the sticker sheets next to the sign in book (full sheets, half sheets or loose stickers all welcome).
To kick us off Woolies are offering double stickers this weekend so get down there and start collecting. If you're bold enough to ask family and friends to do the same and pass on their stickers every sticker earned will make a difference to our kinder.
Thanks in advance for you support.
Any queries please contact Haley.
Wishing everyone in our community a restful and safe holiday break, with the right amount of treats!
We look forward to welcoming Frogs and Kookaburras back to kinder on Tuesday 23rd April and Wombats on Wednesday 24th April.
A reminder that families are welcome at an end of term play this Friday at Blacky Lake park from 4:30pm.
Just one of the photos that you’ll find in our term 1 newsletter, coming out later this week!
