Winter Magic Market 2020 Message from CET
In 'normal' years the first four weeks of our term 3 would be consumed with the wonder and excitement, the companionship and strength of purpose that is our community coming together and preparing for Winter Magic Market. Usually our wonderful school would be filled with busyness – corridors loaded with boxes of second-hand books, Sprout bursting with curry supplies and its tables filled with chatter, craft making and face painting practice. The OSHC kitchen is a production line of curry puffs and in homes jam is bubbling on stoves and recipe books are open to cakes and treats. Musicians old and young are rehearsing, disco balls and playlists are being put together, artworks are being created and generously donated, fire drums and fairy lights are being dug out and the weather forecast is checked for the 78th time. Tanya, in her fabulous red coat, would be orchestrating the whole process with a much appreciated combination of determination, dark humour and expertise.
Sadly, 2020 has taken not just the Winter Magic Market away but for many of us the best bit of this day – the lead up and connections we create through the many and often unbelievably varied jobs we sign up for!Add your memories or reflections to the Kudoboardhttps://www.kudoboard.com/boards/L9zeuNKqBring the winter magic into every home this weekend
Over this week and on Saturday 8th August we are encouraging you to bring a bit of the magic of the Winter Magic Market to your home. We would love it if your family could add to our Virtual Winter Magic Market Kudoboard with photos of how you might be marking this day or reflections of past markets.
Hopefully, whilst we might be apart this virtual collection will make us feel some of the magic that is BNWPSThere may not be a market this year but we can still share the winter magic
