DENTAL CLINIC
Did you know? Many people think Dairy products have more fat in them than they actually do eg. Normal Homogenised milk 3.3% fat, fruit yogurt has less 2%. That’s the same amount of fat you’ll find in bread. Milk is a valuable source of calcium you need to build strong teeth and bones needed for every day living.

ABSENT CHILDREN
It is the parents/caregivers responsibility to contact the school if your child or children are absent from school. A phone call is all it takes phone 439 7255.

LIBRARY
Many thanks to Debbie Robinson and Joanne Nichols for all their help during bookweek and also to the many parents and grandparents who donated books to the Library. A total of 180 books were sold.

SCHOOL HOURS
We have noticed that a number of children have been arriving late to school. School commences at 8.50am and children are required to be at school by then unless other arrangements have been made eg. Music lessons etc. This is particularly important for senior pupils who may be involved with a responsibility like road patrol which commences at 8.30am and pupil council responsibility. Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

PTA SAUSAGE SIZZLE
As this is the last sausage sizzle of the year we would like to acknowledge the many people who have supported this successful fundraiser. Our thanks goes to teachers and office staff for co-ordinating orders. Mr Stringer for ensuring the BBQ was fueled and ready to go, the special needs team for serving, the many parents who volunteered their time to cook and of course our customers—DPS children and their families who have consistently supported us. Thank you everyone for your great service, we estimate about $1000 profit has been raised. Apologies to those families which missed out on drinks and sausages on Parade Day.


ADDRESS & PHONE NUMBERS
Please ensure we have any updates on new addresses and phone numbers also mobile phones. It can be very frustrating trying to get hold of people when it is necessary for a sick child to go home.
