Whittlesea

Welcome to the May 2014 Special 1st Birthday Edition! Your Child in Whittlesea is now 1-year-old! Thank you to all our readers and advertisers who have supported us and been a part of the journey this past year. This Special Birthday Edition features our Cover Child Competition Winner, Noah, on our front cover. We also have all winners and finalists featured on our centre page spread. What a good-looking bunch of littlies! Congratulations to all of you... As our way of saying ‘thank you’ to our local community, we have featured many of our local businesses this month. This edition epitomises the twofold aims of this magazine - to form a community of local families, our regular readers, while supporting local businesses, particularly our home-based enterprises. By offering local advertising we not only provide information to local families about products and services available in the community, but also ensure that this magazine remains FREE to readers like yourselves. Please make sure you “Like” our FB page at www.facebook.com/yourchildinwhittlesea to receive regular updates about “What’s On” in your neighbourhood, and also support our wonderful advertisers. Finally, I would like to dedicate this Special Edition of Your Child in Whittlesea to the memory of Cr Nicola Davis, Whittlesea North Ward councillor, a loving wife and mother, a dear friend and leader in our community, who lost her battle with cancer at the prime of her life. Our thoughts and prayers are with her husband Paul and young daughters Sienna & Tabatha at this time. Thank you Nicola for your support of our magazine over the past year. You will be greatly missed!

Christine

Happy Mother’s Day

Christine Ernest, Editor

to all our wonderful mothers!

SCHOOL OF THE MONTH Plenty Valley Christian College Have you had a close look at Plenty Valley Christian College lately? Perhaps you've never seen more than our car park as you drive past. We are constantly changing and developing, even though you may not see that from the road! In the last few years we have built a brand new primary precinct, a multipurpose hall, and various other classrooms and building upgrades. But it's not about buildings. It's about the Prep' to Year 12 students that call Plenty Valley home, and their experience of high-quality education and outstanding pastoral care.

a

Can we invite you to come and see for yourself? As a first step, check out the short videos on our website and hear what parents and students have to say. Another way to see who we are is to come to our Open Morning on Tuesday, 20th May 2014 from 9am – 12 noon You can tour with students from the College and meet our Principal and Heads of School to ask questions over a cuppa.

Plenty Valley Christian College – we're more than you think! For more information about Plenty Valley Christian College visit::
