Whole School Italian Day

Italian Day: Tuesday the 19th of November!!

It will be a day where the students will be immersed in the Italian language through a variety of cultural activities.
Some of the activities students can look forward to are: Soccer drills, Bocce with Adeglia and her team from The
Furlan Club, Roberto the ‘Connie’ from Yarra Trams for history, Puppet Making, Michelangelo’s Artists, Waiter’s
Race, dancing with Dance Focus and much more as well as a special pizza lunch and gelato treat!

Our Italian Day is always a highlight for our students. The students look forward to the activities and the food.
These days would not be successful if it wasn’t for the assistance and support from our wonderful parent
community. As per previous years, we will need your assistance for our special lunch and for a pasta making and
eating activity particularly for our Year 3 to 6.

Stay tuned for more information about parent helpers and about our special pizza lunch and gelato treat
and how to order in the next two weeks.

A CALL FOR AN EXPRESSION OF INTEREST FOR PASTA MAKING ACTIVITY FOR YEARS 3 TO 6
STUDENTS:

HELP REQUIRED:

Due to popular demand, the Years 3 to 6 students have requested for the possibility to make and eat pasta on our
Italian Day as one of their activities. We are seeking out any interested parents or guardians who would like to take
part in pasta workshops with our students.
We will need:

1 to 2 parents to coordinate the activity and liaise with the interested parents
8 parents or more to conduct several pasta workshops with small groups of students (the more parents available
the easier the activity will be) 2 or more parents to cook and serve the pasta
Teachers will be present to assist and the pasta workshops will start from 9:30 until 12:45 with 5 rotations before
an earlier lunch for some classes.

If you are up for a challenge, want to know how to make pasta and meet new parents or catch up with familiar ones
and of course have lots of fun, please email me on paladino.rosa.r@edumail.vic.gov.au up until Friday the 25th of
October outlining what you are able to assist with.
