Last week, Parent Group hosted their annual Mother’s Day / Special Person stall. This was our biggest stall yet with over 100 items on sale. Across two days, we saw each class come in to select their gifts. Some children knew exactly what they wanted to buy while others took their time browsing.

As the stall was profitable, Parent Group has decided to donate $1000 of the profits to a locally based charity, Next Steps Australia Limited. To give you insight into what Next Steps Australia Limited does to help the community their mission is below:

Our mission is to support survivors of domestic and family violence in establishing independent homes and lives by providing Starter Packs of essential manchester items to families who are forced to leave their homes due to violence.

 We aim to supply at least 365 Starter Packs each year to families in need, meaning that each day of each year, Next Steps Australia is helping at least one mother or child start a new life.

For more information on our selected charity or to see how you can support them please visit their website:

As always, we would like to thank all our volunteers that made this event possible. It was nice to see a lot of new faces volunteering and we hope this continues with other events throughout the year.

If you would like to be notified of volunteer opportunities, please feel free to email Parent Group at

Lastly, we would like to wish all our OSPS mums a very Happy Mother’s Day for Sunday!
