Dear Parents of Grade (fill in detail),


As most of you will know the school market is an important forum for raising much needed funds to support the continuing development and running of our great school.


Each year we host eight community markets in our school grounds, offering a great selection of trash and treasure, plants, clothes, jewellery, pastries, fruit & vegetables and other eclectic and unique surprises. A jumping castle, animal farm, ice-cream van, and an ever growing variety of fun and games to keep the children amused; while the bbq, sausage sizzle, barista coffee and a selection of treats in the school hall offer a great start to any weekend for any age.


Importantly our markets are always a fun and social morning where we as parents get a chance to contribute to the school and participate in the Elwood community, as well as meet other parents.


Critical to our markets’ success is the contribution we all make by volunteering our time and importantly, by providing baked items for our food hall.  


As the nominated classes for the next market, we need you to rally and support our market. Parents and children of the nominated class are asked to help by contributing a couple of hours of their time to fill the required rosters and/or by baking items for our food hall. 


Recipes and tips for market baking are available if you need them.  Cellophane wrap bags, labels, paper plates and boxes and ribbon are available from the trolley outside the kitchen from the Thursday before the market.  Goods should be deposited at the kitchen on Friday after school, or Saturday before 10am.  Please remember the no nuts policy and do not include nuts in your baking.  If you do use nuts, you must bring the items to school already wrapped, with a note not to open it in the school grounds. 


For those of you who have volunteered for roster duty before, we now have a new and simpler way of completing the market roster.  Please select the roster form at:

The Form shows you the available time slots in the roster it allows you to provide information if you are baking.  


Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries.


Kind regards,


(Class Rep name and contact details)
