We are delighted to invite you and your family to attend a Mother’s Day breakfast on Friday 7 May.

Breakfast will commence at 7:30 am in the Francis Batty Hall. All families are welcome and encouraged to attend. We will have a photographer on-site to capture family photos which will be made available to download after the event.

We will also be holding a gift stall for students in Kindergarten – Year 6 on Friday 7 May during class time. Gifts range from $1 – $8 and students are able to purchase a limit of two gifts from the stall.

Preschool students have the opportunity to pre-order from the Mother’s Day Stall. To order, please complete and return the order form attached (including payment) to Preschool. Students are able to purchase a limit of two gifts from the stall. Gifts are currently on display at the Preschool.

The Mother’s Day stall is a special occasion for our students who love hand-selecting a special gift for the mothers and mother figures in their life. We would appreciate your help in operating the stall.  If you are available for any duration of time between 8 am – 11 am on Friday 7 May please contact Sarah Badcock at BadcockS@btac.nsw.edu.au.

Nappy Collective

The Nappy Collective

Bishop Tyrell Anglican College has committed to fundraising for The Nappy Collective. Twice a year The Nappy Collective collects nappies from around Australia to distribute to families in need.

Nappy stress is the experience of families not having enough nappies to change their children as often as they need to. A family experiencing nappy stress is likely to cut back on other essentials like food to access nappies.

Around 1 in 10 Australian mums will struggle to afford the nappies they need for their babies.

The Nappy Collective believes that every child should have access to an adequate supply of clean nappies.

If you would like to help, please drop ‘unused’ nappies at the College Office by the end of May.

Thank you again for all who choose to assist, it is greatly appreciated.
