quotes about friends

International Day of Friendship 2018

Everyone needs a friend.  Someone who will laugh at your dad jokes, support you when you feel like your world is falling apart and help you find your way when you’ve lost your way.

Today is International Day of Friendship, so celebrate all the wonderful friends you have in your life who make your days so much brighter.

Happy Day of Friendship from our family to yours,

Natalie

NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK

QUOTES ABOUT VOLUNTEERS

NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK

Today kicks off the celebrations for National Volunteer Week.  This week is a time to recognise the hard work and contribution volunteers make to our communities.

Having just finished 3 years as our school P&C President I am well aware of the many volunteers in our school and others ensuring our kids have the best opportunities, environments and resources possible.  Everyone is time poor but the truth is without volunteers there would be a lot of things not operating.  Whether you volunteer with the kids sporting clubs, school, scouts, or the many other wonderful organisations in our society then you are making a difference.  Covering books, baking for the cake stall, selling raffle tickets, changing readers, volunteering at the school uniform shop, it all matters.

Today and every day we would like to acknowledge and give thanks to everyone who volunteers and makes sure our communities are the best they can be, thank you!

Today it’s your day to be pampered, spoilt and loved in every way.  Thank you for everything you do for us and our families.

From our family to yours, Happy Mother’s Day!

Anzac Day 2018

Anzac Day 2017

Anzac Day 2018

Anzac Day is a day of remembrance, of honouring those who have served and continue to serve our nation for our freedom.  This year marks the final year of the Centenary of the First World War.  The stories of courage, honour and bravery continue to live on in our nation’s identity and is something we at Made For School are very proud of.

Nearly 100 years ago our Great Uncle, Leslie Winter Reid returned from the great war and started LW Reid, our family business.  Leslie returned from the war, his brother Stanley did not, and remains missing in action to this day.  Stanley’s name is etched on the Menin Gate in Ypres along with 60,000 other Australians missing in action.  Their names and the names of many brave men and women who served their country and paid the ultimate sacrifice are on the Wall of Honour at the Australian War Memorial.

Today as we remember and honour those brave men and women who served our country in both war and peacekeeping duties.

Lest We Forget

Happy Easter!

HAPPY EASTER

Enjoy time with family and friends, hot cross buns and of course Easter eggs.

From our family to yours, we would like to wish you a very Happy Easter.

April Fools’ Easter

April Fools Pranks

April Fools’ Easter

The excitement of no school uniforms for 4 days over Easter is a gift in itself for me, but this year as Easter Sunday falls on April Fools’ day I can’t be the only one thinking this is a match made in heaven?

The Easter Bunny is terrible at our place. He drops little eggs from the front door to the back and leaves messy footprints behind despite the numerous appeals and signs we have made over the years.  This year I’ve decided that to make cleaning up those footprints a little more fun I’m going to swap the eggs for grapes and leave a plate of chocolate grapes on the table.  I’m thinking this will also help with our dog who devours anything, well not homework just yet!

Are you going to have some fun this April Fools?

Library Lovers Day 2018

Library Lovers Day

Roses, chocolates and proclamations of love will be enjoyed around the world on Wednesday for Valentine’s Day. Some lovers, share a different passion. One of divine pleasure, of twists and turns and a scent that can be intoxicating. That’s right, it’s Library Lovers Day on Wednesday!

What is not to love about a new thriller, a romantic dream or sharing someone’s life and dreams through an autobiography?

Get ready to head down to the library with your favourite library bag, and slowly caress the spines and delicately choose your date for the next few nights. Of course, you can always download a new e-book but does it really give you the joy and heady scent of those pages?

Whatever you choose, grab your library bag and get ready to enjoy Library Lovers Day on Wednesday!
