   Donna – nothing heard from Polly as yet re the samples of shirts. Tricia and
     Donna went along to the Co-op and spoke to P&C Federation Rep who
     encouraged us to join. Donna will call tomorrow regarding samples. Margaret
     advised she has found another contact for uniforms but asked if we would like
     to proceed. Hazel advised she is somewhat anxious about costs of the
     uniforms if we proceed with this company but is happy for us to look at shirts
     only at this stage. Margaret is concerned with the quality of the material.
     Brenda will make enquiries about the company who make the uniforms for
     Ruse Public School. Margaret will also enquire about blazers to be
     purchased and held by the school to be used for school representatives.
     Denni suggested advertising for a sub-committee.

President’s Report
No report

Stewart House bags have arrived and will be distributed

   NAPLAN results are out and results are good. Impressed with growth. An
     area of interest to be looked at next year is writing. Additional work this year
     has paid off. An increase in growth in the top children is obvious.
   Staffing - Miss Taylor married last week now Mrs. Stuart. Mrs. Dawson and
     Mrs. Trevascus will be back next Monday if all goes well. Mr. Davies is on light
     duties and additional GAs are working in the school.
   Parent Workshop will be held on Friday 12th, discipline and reward system will
     be discussed. Monday week 4 (29th) at TAFF a parent forum is to be
     organised. A speaker will talk on resilience and all are welcome. Please bring
     the surveys back in time for the forum.
   Kindergarten Orientation – starts on Tuesday and to date we have four
     classes. Mrs. Milne to organise.

     asked for the $100.00 P&C contribution. (Margaret)
                                                                         Belinda / Donna
    Price list is under review.

      yeast and dairy free), chicken snack wraps and making our own pizzas.

    Need to know what we can and cannot sell at recess. Margaret advised all
      recess items and iceblocks and drinks during the warmer weather. Margaret
      advised the auditor has recommended full opening until recess every day and
      the canteen must be profitable. Canteen to start recess in week 3 and to be
      trialled until the end of the term to see if it is viable. It was suggested we ask
      parents for ideas for recess. Various menu items were discussed and other
      school menus examined. We have found most schools are not complying
      with the healthy canteen policies and it was suggested that is why they make
      a high profit. Again discussion regarding tendering the school canteen.
    A canteen committee was suggested and named:
      Margaret Webb, Denni Green, Belinda Trudgen, Brenda Dean, Jo Stewart
       and Hazel Delves (Denni)

   September banking was $483.00 with no invoices to be paid.
   Further to your suggestion to open two days a week, Tricia has offered to help
     and Thursday and Friday mornings are probably the best with most people
     getting paid on these days. (Cheryl written report).
   A Uniform committee was suggested and named:
   Valerie Moszt, Cheryl Neale, Donna LaRue, Tricia Coombs and Hazel Delves
   A reminder to go into the newsletter that uniform items can be ordered paid
     for and picked up from the canteen.
                                                                  Jo / Brenda
