OWPS COMMUNITY FESTIVAL 2019
Only two more weeks to go! Now’s the time to jump online get your tickets for opening night, buy your rides passes and book in your volunteering spot. Parent notes were sent in Skoolbag and are going out as a hard copy. Head to www.owpscommunityfestival.org
If you'd like to promote the event with your community, sporting groups or daycare there are some promo flyers at the Front Office. We'd love you to share the message!
FINAL TRASH & TREASURE DROP OFF THIS FRIDAY
Thank you to all those who've donated so far to our Trash and Treasure stall. 100% of profits from this stall go back to the school and it's always popular with festival-goers! We’d love your donations (see flyer later in this newsletter for donations we are able to accept). Any questions please contact Lisa Foy (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Kim Jepson (email@example.com).
Collection drop off at the shade sail area near Kindergarten rooms this Friday 16th from 3.15 to 3.45pm.
LOVE OUR DUMPLINGS?
Each year our Flavours of Asia stall sells out of their delicious dumplings before the day is out. This is your chance to order frozen dumplings to have at home! Only 40 packets are available so head to bit.ly/OWPSdumplings to order before they sell out. More details in the flyer later in this newsletter.
READY-SET-BAKE... CAKE STALL NEEDS YOU!
Thinking of getting your MasterChef mojo on this year? Let us know what you'll be baking and when you'll be dropping off by completing the Donation Form which is attached to the Parent Note by Thursday 22nd August.
CAN YOU DONATE A BOTTLE OF WINE?
The 'Keys to the Cellar' is always a highlight of the evening and a terrific fundraiser for the school. The Cellar is filled with donations from Oatley West parents who generously drop off a bottle or two (valued at minimum $20 each) to ensure that the Cellar is well and truly stocked! This is an ideal opportunity for parents who cannot volunteer over the Community Festival weekend to show their support and still contribute to the event.
The next drop-off is this Wednesday 3.15-3.45pm in the driveway of 71 Oatley Park Avenue (opposite the main entrance gate to the school). If you have questions or can’t make these times but would still like to donate please contact Milly Starkey (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Lea Pracy (email@example.com).
Tickets for Opening Night and Ride Passes are now available online (www.owpscommunityfestival.org/buy-now). Don't forget the All Weekend ride passes are only available online and the one day passes are cheaper if you pre-pay.
Have you already sold your Raffle Tickets? If so, GO YOU! If you need more get in touch with Jenny Nicol (firstname.lastname@example.org). Make sure you return ticket butts and money to the School Office by Wednesday 21 August to be in the draw.
