The P&C is planning a colour run on Friday 5 April after lunch, to raise money for our new playground outside the pre-primary. They are sending home fundraising books this week, which give families the option to fundraise online or to use the form at the back of the book.  If you would like to see a colour run in action, there are a lot of videos of them on YouTube.  The P&C will hold a meeting to organise this event on Wednesday 20 March, 7.30pm – 8.30pm, at the Left Bank and invites all class parent reps and any other interested parents to come along.

It’s the P&C Dads of Richmond Kids camp from 5.00pm this Saturday.  Registrations are essential –  https://rpspc.tidyhq.com/ – to secure your camping spot and breakfast.  On arrival, please see the organisers before pitching your tent.  For cooking on Saturday you can bring your own camp stove or make use of the bbqs and pizza oven.  Please bring all your own ingredients (if everyone wants to make pizzas there may be a bit of a delay.)  Please bring old newspapers, sticky tape and textas for games at 7.00pm.  On Sunday morning it’s a bbq and coffee van, with a chat for the Dads and an activity for the children, before pack up.  For info or help: Mike – 0468 615 446 mikeslattery346@hotmail.com.

On Friday 22 March it’s Bike 2 School day. There is a P&C Big Breakfast from 7.15am and everyone who bikes to school will get a free juice box from the Town of East Fremantle.  We will also give out swimming medallions at 9.00am after the breakfast.

School photographs will be taken this Thursday by Kapture.  They will take a class shot up to year 4, and a year shot of years 5 and 6. They will also take an individual shot of every student. Use your two codes to order should you wish: https://www.kapture.com.au.  For the past few years Kapture has also taken a few sibling shots as a bonus for parents as they had a spare hour in their schedule. I think this will be the last year they offer this extra service, because the quota has caused disappointment (it would take nine hours to shoot every family).

Parents will have seen media reports of strangers in cars pulling up alongside students in the Melville area in recent weeks.  We have a sheet of safe practices that we use with our students – they are at the office if you would like one.

Thank you to abel mcgrath property group for their recent $500 donation to the school, and to Gilberts Fresh Hilton customers who have raised $1087.90 to date for our P&C via the support our schools program.

It’s very busy as you can see, hopefully everyone can also find time to relax with their family.  Thank you for your support of the Richmond community.
