P&C Father's Day Stall

Date

02 September

Time

All day

Location
Wentworth Falls Public School

Welcome back to Term 3! Father’s Day is less than 4 weeks away and the P&C is busy filling and decorating jars for the annual Father’s Day stall. This year the stall will be held on FRIDAY, 2 September. Many of us look forward to the arrival of our gorgeous gingham topped jars, but for those new to the school, you are in for a treat! Each student has the opportunity to choose a jar filled with the ingredients needed to spoil all the wonderful fathers and grandfathers of Wentworth Falls. There will be the very popular brownie mix, a choice of biscuit mixes, salts and pancakes. These are gifts our children and families can feel good about. They are eco-friendly, made locally with reusable jars, and they are absolutely delicious! Many families say they enjoy the time spent baking together, and some older students take the initiative and make afternoon tea themselves! All gift jars are $8.00 each and all the profits will buy resources for our children to use at school. If you would like your child to select a gift jar, please go to www.quickcliq.com.au and click on EVENTS under the QuickCliq Logo. We have chosen this online system to streamline the process for our volunteers this year. If you are unable to order using QuickClik, there will be forms available at the office, and payment will be required in correct cash. Your child will be able to choose from the selection of jars on the 2nd of September at school. The last day for orders will be WEDNESDAY, 31 August. Many thanks for your support, P&C
