Cookie Time Christmas Cookies Fundraiser
We are really lucky to be one of only 50 schools around NZ to be able to sell Cookie Time Christmas Cookies as a fundraiser. They have created 2x Amazing Kiwiana Tins especially for schools to sell. They are filled with chocolate chip cookies. Each set of two sells for $20 and $5 goes to the school.
I know that lots of people buy these for Christmas so we are hoping that families can take this to their work places and get us lots of sales!!
The fundraiser starts on 6th November and Tins are ordered once the order form and money are returned to school.
We really want the money raised to go to something special for our students so we will be asking them to pitch ideas next week.
I have attached a poster and an order form for people to use. Jonelle, Ian, Jill and myself can all collect order forms and money as soon as you have them ready. You can order multiple times until about the beginning of December.
Parent Event Thursday 23rd November
Our group of parents are working on putting together an evening event for parents. They have been formulating a plan and booking a venue. At this stage they have pencilled in Thursday November 23rd at the XCHC. I thought I would just give people a heads up for now as term 4 can get very busy.
