The team at Beadie Creations will help you finish off your project so you can wear your new creation with pride.

If any St Matty’s parents feel the need to share their creative spirit and want to join in on the fun on fete day, volunteers will be warmly welcomed. Contact Tamsin Walkden at [email protected] WE NEED YOU! Have fun, meet new people and support our school. We need parents and friends of St Matthew’s to help out on stalls and activities on Fete Day and in the lead up to our great fete. Sorting clothes for The Clothing Emporium, making cakes, sweets and relishes and simply spreading the word to all your family and friends are all positive ways you can help. Whether you can assist with set up the day before or offer an hour on the day we would be grateful for your assistance. Later this term we will place a volunteer roster online so you can put your name down next to a stall and/or task. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact Shannon Woodward [email protected] MONSTER RAFFLE We have a long list of potential sources, but need a parent or friend who has some spare time to walk into the relevant businesses with the request letter and discuss the potential donation with the manager.

Line a baking tray with baking paper. Cream butter, brown sugar and vanilla until pale and creamy. Add egg and mix until combined. Add sifted plain flour and bi carb soda then use a wooden spoon to mix together. Add the rolled oats and chocolate chips and mix until combined. Roll tablespoons of mixture into a ball and place on the baking tray (leave a fair amount of space between the cookies as they do spread). Bake for 15 - 18 minutes (the more you cook, the crunchier the cookies will be). Place in a wire cooling rack to cool. Enjoy! MATTY’S GARDEN If you have any plants or garden items and accessories, Matty’s Garden is looking for donations to make this stall a success. These can be dropped off in the courtyard at any time prior to Fete day.
