School Lunch Orders

School lunch Orders

Starting tomorrow students will be able to order their lunch each Wednesday.  Copies of our Menu went home with students today and can be found under the ‘Information’ tab on our website. Order bags are available from the front office.

Orders are to be placed in the box in the front office containing correct change by 8.40am (at the latest!!) on Wednesdays*
• Please make sure student name, classroom number and order selection is clear on lunch order bag and bag is sealed
• Bags can be collected from the front office
• Correct change accepted only
*Newton Moore Senior High School Canteen needs sufficient time to collect and prepare orders, those received after 8.40am will not be filled

Later this term we will introduce a second lunch order day on a Friday. This day will be run from our school canteen by Newton Moore Education Support Centre. Staff and students from NMESC will use our canteen as their classroom. Orders for Friday will be taken on Thursday so that purchasing can happen prior to Friday. This is an exciting project that enhances learning opportunities and provides a service to our school.

Tuart Forest Primary School P & C

Hi Parents and Carers,

Firstly a very big welcome back to school for our returning families and a super big welcome to the new families for 2016. I truly hope that you and your children have all settled into the 2016 school year.

Before I go any further, let me introduce myself, my name is Josh Oakey and I am the President of the Tuart Forest Primary School P&C. More importantly though I am the Dad to Maddie and Chase who are in Year 5 and Year 2, respectively. I love this school, and have been here since the beginning!

So the reason for my email, newsletter piece or FB Post (depends on where you are reading this), is to invite you all to become active members of the P&C.

One of the questions I commonly get asked is what is the P&C?

Well to sum it up the P&C is a group of TFPS parents who meet every month to discuss ways on how we can support the school provide the best learning and fun environment for our children.

This is done through fundraising events, discussions with our principal and other key representatives of the school and community.

Last year the committee consisted of around 30 parents and friendships were formed.

We had 5 fundraising events (within the school and as part of community events) which had a variety of volunteers and raised money for the Oxford Learning readers which will be used by all children for many years to come.

This year our first meeting is on Monday 8th February at 7.30pm in the school library, please come along around 7.15pm and have a cuppa and a chat before the meeting gets started at 7.30pm.

If you would like anything added to the agenda, please submit to by Friday 5th February 2016.

If you can’t make it we also offer the meeting online, so you can attend from home! However we have found that the meetings are a great chance to meet other parents that you only see in the playground.

Membership to the P&C costs $1 for the year and provides you with full voting rights and the ability to nominate for one of the Office Bearer Positions.

If you would like to join as a member download a membership form here…

Following on from the first general meeting, will be the Annual General Meeting and will be held on Monday 15th February at 7.30pm in the Library. This meeting will not be available online.

ALL positions are declared vacant and everyone is encouraged to nominate for a position on the executive committee (President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer or Executive committee member).

Here are the nomination forms for the Office Bearer positions as well as a brief description of each…

We need as much support from parents as we can possibly get.  The P&C is all about our supporting our children and our school community.

Please return the nomination forms for office bearer positions by Thursday 11th February 2016, to the school office or by email to .

Everyone has something to contribute, such as time, ideas, enthusiasm, or just getting in there and getting your hands dirty!

Your presence, opinions, input, and support are very valuable.

Please come along, listen to what the P&C is all about and nominate for a position or register yourself as a general member.

If you have any questions regarding the P&C, please feel free to contact me on 0417 763 633 or by email .  I look forward to talking with you soon.
