Just a reminder, on behalf of the Gala team, they are still sourcing Auction items so please contact them directly if you can contribute personally, or through your business.  The success of the Gala auction will have a huge impact on

the fundraising revenue for the school this year so all contributions are hugely appreciated.   Also, if you haven't yet booked your tickets, please do - the more of our school community we can get together for what is sure to be an

amazing event, the better!

Not only was Monday's assembly an amazing display of our students dressed to impress in dozens of different book characters, it also provided our school Captains and a couple of our Preps a platform to acknowledge the

extraordinary commitment and effort everyday of both Ms Dudley and Ms Mackey.  August 2nd is "Principal's Day" but we believed our Principal and Vice Principal deserved to be recognised when the whole school were together so

we chose Monday to celebrate their contribution.  On behalf of the PTFA, thank you both for all you do for our school community.  

As always, if anyone has any feedback, input, ideas or time they would like to contribute to a specific planned event or the PTFA generally, we would love to hear from you!

Thanks so much,

Fiona Galbally (on behalf of the PTFA).

Woolworths Earn & Learn

Woolworths Earn & Learn is officially over and I'd like to thank everyone who has helped us out by shopping at Woolworths and collecting those stickers. Now comes the fun part, the counting!

Obviously we want to count as many as we can, which is why we need your help to bring in all the stickers you may have collected and put them in out collection box. And keep an eye out for any rogue stickers too. You may find them

down the side of the car seat. Or hidden in the back of drawers. Every sticker counts. And the higher we can count, the more equipment we can get!

Thanks again for helping us out.


Well, the amazing team behind this year's Gala (Sept 7th) are in full swing of preparations, organising what is already looking like a phenomenal night, in a spectacular location! Make sure you book your tickets this week to be included

in the "Earlybird Raffle".  There has been a call out to Prep and Grade 1 families to offer support with process and/or on the night with silent auction. If you are in position to help, please let us know. Extra hands on deck are needed

and really appreciated.

In line with the new PTFA structure this year, assistance for specific events has been allocated to specific year groups. For example, the running of this year's Mother's Day events was allocated to Grade 3 & 4 families (& what an

awesome job they did!) and the Gala to Prep/Grade 1. However, to clarify, if you would like to assist with a specific event (e.g. Father's Day stall) but are not a Grade 5/6 family, your support is still most welcome and valued.

Additionally, if your assistance has been called on but you are already fully committed, then zero pressure, we understand.

I look forward to hearing from those who are in a position to get involved, at any level. In the meantime, can you all please follow our Facebook page "Ivanhoe East Primary School Parents Teachers Friends Association - PTFA" to help

keep you up to date with all the exciting social events and fundraisers we are organising for the whole community, for the remainder of the year. With thanks, The PTFA team ⯑
