Welcome back everyone.
I’m very excited about the year ahead. There will be some changes and I will try and come up with a few different ideas as the year progresses.
First of all I would like to welcome all the new kindergarten kids and parents. I hope you had a good first week at Jannali East. The existing team of volunteers is looking forward meeting the new parents that have put their hand up to help out this year.
I’m sure that after your first shift you will agree that the BEST part of this job is to see the kindergarten kids coming over to buy their treats after lunch. Some of them can hardly see over the counter, some are shy and find it VERY hard to decide while some kids just try and buy everything…with 10 cents. It makes it all worth while.
As mentioned before there will be some exciting changes later in the year, starting with the online ordering system. Well overdue but we need to upgrade the canteen first before we can do this and that will take time.
The menu will roughly stay the same for now, slowly offering more healthy solutions using the NSW Healthy Canteen as a guide.
I would like to welcome Emma Pay as the new canteen treasurer. Emma takes over from Shannon McGregor, who was ready to pass on the responsibilities after many years of service. Thank you Shannon. The canteen would not have been able to run smoothly without people like you.
I would like to thank Susan Derwentsmith for her continuous work with the rostering. Just a friendly reminder from Susan:
If you cannot work on your rostered day please organise a swap withsomeone else on the roster. If you have received this roster by email, you can‘Reply to All’ requesting a swap – there are some extra people on the email list who aren’t regular volunteers, but may be able to help out at short notice. If you have any other questions or concerns about the roster: please contact Susan on email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the new parents that have not been rostered on yet, you will be added in term 2.
Attached is the LATEST version of the menu. Sorry for the confusion, but this one has some extra items so please disregard previous copies. For the new parents also attached is the “How to Order” and a “Sticky Beaks Insulated Bag” order form.
Should you have any suggestions, questions or concerns regarding the canteen please contact the P&C on email@example.com or attend the next available P&C meeting held every school term.
