From the PCG
‘Second Hand Uniform Shop’:
The PCG is pleased to announce that we now have a Second Hand Uniform Shop.
Thank you Natalie Patterson for offering to run this.
How it works:
Seller: Parents to label each item with the Name, phone number and price. PCG will take 20% off the for administering the service. Funds will go towards PCG Fundraising Initiatives.
Shop Hours: By appointment only. Contact Natalie Patterson via RCS Parent Facebook page or leave a message at the office.
The PCG will be selling The Entertainment Book again this year. Please start promoting this with friends and family. The link below allows people to buy the book all around the country, so please share it with friends and family. The school receives $12 for each book sold, so this goes a long way towards our fundraising. https://www.entertainmentbook.co.nz/orderbooks/9b26634
Cheese Rolls – Update
Forms were sent home last Tuesday so you can start collecting orders for cheese rolls. These are due back 10 June. There are prizes for children that collect the most orders. Please also put the 18th June in your diaries to come along and help with the production of cheese rolls. Last year this was a wonderful day of connecting with others in the school community while raising considerable funds for the school.
School Mum’s Bible Study:
Mums Bible study groups are going to be held this term twice a week. Wednesday afternoon: 2-3pm in the school staffroom and Thursday evening: 7-8.30pm, venue yet to be decided. Please talk to Cristene Trenuela-Chan (firstname.lastname@example.org), Jacqueline Pieterse or Amy Steven (0212254653, email@example.com) if you are keen to be a part of this, and we will make sure we have a study book for you. We are a multi denominational group, with mums who are at different stages of their walk with Christ.
At some stage in the future RCS would like to work towards a school fair. The PCG is requesting someone who would take leadership with organising this event. Please contact Nina Green or Alan Whitmore if you would like to get involved.
The PCG are running a number of fundraisers this year to obtain funds for assisting the school to purchase various items that have been selected as a priority. At present the school is raising funds or seeking donations for court markings, kapa haka uniforms, a gazebo, ipads and chrome books, a water harvesting system, a junior playground, and a PA system. As you can imagine the cost to do all this is large!
If anyone is able to assist the school with offering their time at fundraising events (such as the cheese roll making on the 18th June), donation of full bottles of unexpired contents in a plastic bottle that it still sealed & new, sourcing ipads/ chrome books/ or other items mentioned (perhaps you work somewhere that these could be bought at a discounted rate?) please see Nina Green (Leon’s mum Year 1).
We are also seeking prizes for children whose fundraising efforts are great. Free passes, toys, food treats etc would all be gratefully received. Please take these to the office if you can help.
Get Involved with the PCG
The PCG is small in numbers and we would be grateful for more parents to come on board and serve the school. We meet once a month and there is a place for anyone who can give their time and energy! Please see Alan Whitmore or speak to Kendra Liggett if you would like to get involved. It’s a fun group who are dedicated and enthusiastic and we’d love to see some new faces!
We are running a number of fundraising events this year. Cheese rolls, school mug fundraiser, scholastic book fair, mystery bottle and mystery stick event at the fireworks, lego building fun day (save the date for 17th September!), and sausage sizzles to name a few. If you can assist at any of these events or donate goods that would assist these fundraising endeavours please contact Nina Green.
