Icypole Roster: Term 4 roster now open

Icypole Roster: Term 4 roster now open

*** To volunteer please click here

Every Thursday lunchtime at Hawthorn West Primary School icypoles are available for all students to purchase. The cost of icypoles is $1 each.

We require 2 parent volunteers each week to run the icypole sales. You can roster on once a year, once a term or as many times as you like. This is a fun, quick and easy way to get involved and help out. This year you can sign up online for the dates that suit. (Note: This is a change from previous years where parents volunteered and were then rostered on).

Volunteering involves:

– arriving approx. 15 minutes prior to lunchtime to set up (collect and sort icypoles from the freezer)

– selling icypoles for 20-30 minutes

– counting and bagging the money and submitting it to the school office

Location: HWPS – next to the BBQ
