Treasurer report

We are waiting for a balance update for the Treasurers.

We are planning a more transparent process around paying for requested items so that everybody can see what the school has requested, what we’ve agreed to pay, and the status of the payment.

First Aiders request

We need at least 4 registered First Aiders at all our events. The Federation have given us some logins for online First Aid training & certification so we can increase the number of availabel First Aiders.

Naomi & Chiara volunteered to do the training, and we have 2 more logins available for anyone who can commit to being a registered First Aider at the Spring Fair and future events.

If you would like to participate in the training, which only takes a couple of hours, and volunteer as a registered First Aider please let us know by emailing info@shacklewellfamilies.com
