Dear Parents and Friends,
Who can believe it, we are now into June. The leaves are falling, the chill is here & already half the year has
passed. No longer are we sending the children in sunscreen & hats, but coats & woolly warm clothes.
The building works continue to progress & is still on schedule to finish on time by the end of term. The interruption
to families at pick up & drop off seems to be working smoothly. We would like to extend our thanks to the
continued patience & support by all families.
The new works has generated much interest in the children. With the newly laid rubber in
the pre-school playground, the children have created a new bike game with the ‘track’ in the
rubber. The toy tools are being used to bang & sand, fixing the doll house. Even the babies in
the nursery aren’t perturbed by the noise & carry-on.
I hope the dreaded cold/flu doesn’t catch you.
Kind regards, Cas Coomans (President)

A Word From Our Staff
Can you please make sure
that your children’s
belongings are clearly
The un-named food & drink
containers are becoming a
problem. We have too many precious children at our
centre with various allergies & we cannot take the
chance with guessing which lunch box belongs to
which child.
We have a permanent texta at the front desk that
you can use to write your childs name on their
containers if you need to.
We cannot stress enough how important this issue is.
Thankyou for your understanding in this matter.
~ Annie

Fundraising News
Movie Night
Water for Elephants Movie
This was a great success
and thoroughly enjoyed by all
who attended. I think a few of
us found it quite teary, but that
might have been because of the
champers! We raised $260
which will go towards much
needed art supplies for
Playstation. Look out for the
next movie night, planned for
the fourth term.

Up-Coming Events Term 3
In the third term, look out for the Crazy Camel
catalogue. There are some fab ideas for cards and
calendars which make a great present for the family.
Thank you
With all the fabulous money raised through
fundraising, staff has been able to purchase new
‘little people’ tables & chairs for the rooms. So next
time you’re dropping off, look out for some fresh
new furniture.
Staff & committee wish to extend their gratitude in
the contribution of families which enables us to
better our centre for the children.
If anyone wishes to have any of the old furniture
for their home, please see Annie or another staff

Do you know of a friend who needs some time out?
How about adding an afternoon session to your
morning session?
From the 5th September this year, 2012 enrolment packs
will be made available for all existing members at
Playstation. This year we will be giving the option to
receive these forms via email instead of having a pack
waiting for you at the centre. This way you will receive the
forms the first day they are available, and can print and
complete them ready to take with you to your first session
that week. Playstation continues to adopt a first-in-first
served allocation for placement. If you would like to
receive your enrolment pack via email, please return this
slip to the centre with an up to date email address. If we
do not receive a response from you, a pack will be waiting
for you at the centre from September 5. Any questions to
