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. A copy of the books will be coming home with each family today. If you can sell the copy you have been given, or purchase it yourself, that would be fantastic! If you are unable to sell the book please return it to the office.
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.
Donations – A big THANK YOU!
The PCG would like to thank Orana Park for their generous donation of free passes to the park for students that collect the most cheese roll orders. We would also like to thank New World Rolleston for their generous donation towards the court markings. It is wonderful to have such a supportive local community!
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.
Bake Sale Thank you
We would like to say a HUGE thank you for all your support with the bake sale last Wednesday. We hope you enjoyed your treats as much as we enjoyed helping to prepare them and selling them to you.
With your help we raised $174.00 towards our goal. This has been a great start towards the $300 we need to get 30 pairs of Goggles for the children of Malolo School in Fiji.
Stirling Sports in Northlands have been very kind to offer us these quality goggles at a third of the retail price. So we thank them too.
We have another challenge this weekend of tramping 17km in to Lake Daniels and back. And we are hoping that the money we raise from doing this will get us to our target.
Thank you again for your support with the Bake Sale, from George and Oliver Bell.
