of where we are at.
Catering Supplies – Tracey Carmody advised that we are not a huge catering
school. However, when we have functions on there is a lack of serving platters and
jugs. She would like to see these items bought and put in a locked cupboard in the
kitchen. Anyone needing these items would have to sign a key out with the Admin.
Urn – Tracey Carmody advised that the urn used at Grandparent’s Day tripped the
power and made it very stressful getting the water hot in time. She suggested that
we buy a new one.
Tuckshop –Slushie Machine made on 99% Juice ordered for Tuckshop. Action –
After much discussion, Steve voted that as the machine comes with no contract,
however we have to buy the 99% Juice from the supplier. We should put it in the
tuckshop on trial and over the summer months.
Shop for Schools Programs – This became a very heated discussion. Where as a
school do we stand on letting so many companies’ advertise through the school
system. Action - It was agreed that there should be a policy made on how many
programs the school should participate in each year.
Fair Wrap Up – Tracey Carmody congratulated Andrew Small and Michelle
MacDonald together with their committee on a great fair.
Andrew was very pleased with the running of the fair. He said it was great to see
everyone pull together and work so hard to give our kids and the wider community a
great and memorable day at Stella Maris...It was a bonus the weather was
Jodie O’Rourke made a great comment..That she was so impressed by the amount
of teachers & staff who worked on so many of the stalls on the day. Well done!
