                            SWIMMING CARNIVAL CAPS
                                 RHPS Swimming Carnival 2010
Dear Parents and Caregivers

                                                                                        caps,
Earlier this year I organised the Rouse Hill Public School zone representative swimming caps, as
well as a number of house caps for some of the students in KELLY. A number of parents
approached me on the Carnival Day expressing interest in the house caps. I intend to place a
new order for next years zone caps in the silicone quality rather than the thinner latex and I
would like to know if there are any parents/caregivers interested in purchasing a house cap for
their child for next year’s School Swimming Carnival. I have discussed the idea of the students
being able to identify each other by house colour with Mrs Machan, just as they can do with
Athletics by wearing a T-Shirt in their house colour and we thought this might be a good idea
to keep up the team spirit.

A coloured brochure showing what the caps would look like will be on the school noticeboard
at the front of the hall. Apart from needing to know the quantity required, I also need your
responses to the quality (either silicone or latex) the cost of the latex is approximately half that
of the silicone. If you are interested in purchasing caps, please complete the tear off slip below
and return it tho Mrs Machan.

Cost per cap: Silicone $8-00 approximately
              Latex $4-00 approximately
Thank you
Donna Cooper

              CRUNCH AND SIP COMES TO ROUSE HILL PUBLIC SCHOOL




Did you know that children need a balanced diet to maintain good health?

70% of children eat the daily recommended servings of fruit.
30% of children eat the daily recommended servings of vegetables.
The recommended quantities are:
              2 serves of fruit
              5 serves of vegetables

To help parents meet the recommended daily servings, Crunch and Sip begins next week, Monday
24th August, at Rouse Hill Public School.

What is Crunch and Sip?
Crunch and Sip is a program that promotes healthy eating as part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

How can children participate?
Children will be able to eat fresh fruit or vegetables and have a drink of water during class time, as
part of their daily routine. The time will be set by the class teacher. Times will vary from class to
class.

How can parents help?
Parents will need to provide fresh fruit or vegetables (such as carrot sticks) and a bottle of plain
water, in addition to your child’s recess and lunch. The children will not be allowed to eat
processed food of any kind during this time. Please peel and cut any difficult to open fruit, such as
oranges, and place in a clip-lock bag or container. Please contact your child’s teacher or Mrs Hardy
with any questions.

Do all children have to participate?
No, however teachers will be encouraging children to participate and we hope parents will too.

We are looking forward to lots of healthy crunching and sipping.

Now Spring has arrived we are seeing a huge
increase in demand for properties in our area.

Being a Rouse Hill Local for over 11 years and
parent of school age children, I understand why
the demand to live in our developing
community is so high.

For an obligation free market appraisal or if
you would just like to be kept up to date with
local market trends please give me a call.
