Parents and Friends for Armadale

Hi everyone,

Hot Cross Bun collection

Thank you to everyone who ordered their yummy Philippa’s hot cross buns through the PFA.  With your help, we raised $541.34!  A very special thank you to Emily Gardner for managing the Hot Cross Bun drive with the help of and Fiona Madden-Jones – much appreciated!

Remember to collect your buns this Friday 23rd March from the quadrangle/stage area between 2.30pm and 3.45pm. Enjoy!

Easter Hampers

As I was delivering plain cardboard boxes to each classroom last week, it was fun to hear that there’s some friendly (or fierce!) competition amongst some of the teachers to be the winner of this year’s Easter Hamper box decorating competition!  It’s such a fun activity for the kids to be involved in, and we wish each class best of luck with the competition!  In Rochelle’s absence, Connie will be judging the top 3 winning boxes on Monday 26th March. 

Reminder - this Friday 23rd March by 10am is your last chance to make a donation for the Hampers.  The huge box in Reception is filling up nicely, however with 16 Hamper boxes to fill, we could still do with a few more goodies please!

Raffle tickets will be available to purchase to win one of the top 3 winning hampers from this Thursday 22nd March to Thursday 29th March, from 8.45am to 9.15am, and 3.15pm to 3.45pm each day from.  You’ll find our friendly volunteers in the quadrangle.  Tickets are 1 for $2, or 3 for $5, and the prizes will be drawn at the final assembly on the last day of term.

 Volunteers required please!

1.     To help turn the donations and decorated boxes into beautiful hampers - this Friday 23rd March at 10am.

2.     To help sell raffle tickets – times and dates outlined above (under Raffle tickets).


If you are able to spare 30 minutes or so to help out, it would be greatly appreciated!  Please email directly with the activity you would like to help with, and the day & shift if it’s for the raffle tickets.

Mother’s Day lunch

Sarah Alder and her team of volunteers have been hard at work organising a very special Mother’s Day Lunch to be held at the beautiful Royal South Yarra Tennis club on Friday 4th May at 12pm.  It will be a wonderful afternoon of mums celebrating themselves and each other.  It’s also a great opportunity to get to know some of the other mums from your year level, and meet some new mums that you pass by in the school yard!

Cost is $80 per head and includes a drink on arrival, 2 course meal, tea/coffee and a small donation towards the PFA fundraising efforts.  There will also be some lovely prizes being raffled off on the day.  You can book your tickets at

Enjoy the last week of term!
