Cake Stall – Urgent Help Needed

PLEASE HELP! The Parents Association Storeroom has weavels!


On Friday we discovered weavels enjoying our store of flour and sugar left over from last year and we urgently need to re-stock for this week’s cake stall at the Collingwood Children’s Farm Farmer’s Market on Saturday.

If you aren’t able to bake for the week end, please consider making a donation. We urgently need:

  • flour
  • cornflour
  • gluten free cake & biscuit mix
  • sugar
  • icing sugar
  • custard powder


  • butter
  • eggs
  • dried fruit
  • apples
  • oranges
  • oats
  • honey
  • cinnamon


The Parents Association is planning a shopping trip to Cosco’s so if you can, please drop your donations in to the canteen by 9am Wednesday so we know what we have – and can spend as little of our hard earned money as possible!


Baking & Nit Spray Making THIS FRIDAY!


For those of you who enjoy baking with friends – or simply for the joy of baking in Desley’s kitchen, we are holding a baking day between 9am and 6pm this Friday. We’ll be baking Yo Yos and macaroons, fruit cakes, apple crumble cakes and tea cakes – or anything else you’d like to bake!

If baking is not for you, also on Friday (in the canteen between 9am and 2pm), we’re making up some more organic nit spray to help combat the seemingly never-ending head lice alert. It’s very simple and everything you need will be provided.

If you can come along on Friday for a couple of hours, we’d love to see you.




The first cake stall for the year is on this Saturday at the Collingwood Children’s Farm Farmer’s Market. This one is always a big fundraiser for us as market-goers buy biscuits and cakes as Mother’s Day gifts or to take to share with their families the next day.

Please consider baking a cake or biscuits for our stall. Cake bags will be available from Monday afternoon on the ground floor outside the classrooms, at the office, at the bottom of the stairs and from After Care.

Please bring your donations to the Parent’s Association Kitchen on Friday before 6pm.

We also need helpers on Saturday between 7am – 1pm and we urgently need a morning person with a station wagon or ute to bring the small marquee and trestles and help set them up between 7 and 7:30am.

Children and students are welcome to help, it’s great maths practice!


If you can help for an hour on Saturday or can bring the marquee, please call or SMS Tina on 0438 176 635.


Thank you!

Tina (R3/4)
