The PTF will be collecting donations for the Asylum Seekers Centre at the next Rue Kelly Second Hand Sales in Week 8.

The sales will take place on Thursday 10 and Friday 11 June from 8am to 9am.

Donations of non perishable food, toiletries and nappies are welcome.

Please note that private music tuition fees at IGS will increase from $44 to $45 for 30 minutes from Term 3.

The increase brings IGS rates closer to the rate recommended by the Music Teachers Association of NSW (though still below) and is aimed at retaining our highly experienced staff.

Please see here a recent letter sent to Parents and Carers regarding the Kindy to Year 6 Vacation Care Program for June and July 2021.

PTF Year 6 parent representatives invite fellow Year 6 parents and carers to share their details via this link to help organise social events.

Please note that parents and carers who opt in must keep the list private and confidential. It is not to be shared with others outside the IGS community and may not be used by parents and carers for sharing information other than PTF matters (ie not for spam). If printed, it is to be disposed of securely once no longer needed.

Parents are reminded that if they change their contact details, this should be done via Engage.

 

The first IGS music ensembles concert since 2019 will be held in the Hall at 6pm on Thursday 20 May. Tickets are free, but please book via this link to maximise COVID safety.

Please see new webinars for parents and carers here.

See here a few things you can do to help keep your children and others safer during drop-off and pick-up
times during the school week.

The PTF is encouraging labelling to help reduce lost property waste.

Please order name labels here so that 25 per cent of every registered IGS label order (using the IGS school code of 2127 or the School’s name) will be donated back to the PTF and then to the Sustainable Futures group to use for their good work.

The PTF has a new initiative with WornUp to send away old uniforms to be made into new school desks. A “pod” for collecting old items will arrive shortly. The PTF is paying for the collections and the recycling fees.

Please see the calendar for information about the next PTF Rue Kelly secondhand sale.

 

eSafety is running a free webinar for parents that looks at how parents and carers can set up devices and apps to help keep young people safer online. The webinar will include practical tips, demonstrations, and advice for parents and carers to help keep young people safer online.
