Mphatso Children's Foundation Charity Cricket match
A few of us met at lunchtime today to iron out arrangements for the first staff v students Alan Parker charity match supporting the Mphatso Children's Foundation will be held on Wednesday December 4 during long LINKS and lunchtime on the college soccer pitch. "Six and out" rules will apply!
Staff and students are invited to bring along and wear a bright hat and shirt during the game and cheer loudly for their favourite team. Please note: This day is not a free dress day. You are encouraged to contribute a gold coin donation on the day if you can though.
Gary Lumsden is organising a BBQ with sausages, burgers and vegie burgers available to be enjoyed by all, along with cans of soft drink that will be sold by Alan's 8B2 and 8B3 science students.
Any Year 9-10 students who would like to play are asked to let Mr. Crabtree in Currawong know. We have at least 10 staff who are keen to play but whoever puts their hand up will get a run.
Umpire Simpkin will be officiating and has informed me he is accepting bribes.
Could all MSSM folk please get the word out to the kids if you wouldn't mind? It should be a bit of fun and raise some good coin for Mphatso.
Thanks to all and kind regards,
The booklists can be downloaded here

Second-hand Textbook and Uniform Trading
The College is conscious of the need to provide an efficient process for families to be able to recycle their textbooks, uniforms and student resources.
I am delighted to inform you of the school’s new initiative to provide parents with the ability to trade second-hand items via the “Sustainable School Shop”. Families are assisted to list For Sale & Wanted advertisements online and the system then matches buyers with sellers. Results from other schools have been excellent; families have enjoyed a comprehensive and convenient method of trading these second-hand items. Many schools in Ballarat are using the service.
The Sustainable School Shop is providing complimentary access until 30th September 2014 and we would encourage parents to take full advantage of this opportunity. You need to nominate the Mt Clear College when you register on the Sustainable School Shop website to receive your complimentary Subscription (lasts 365 days).
The service provides access to second-hand textbooks, uniforms, calculators, stationery, musical equipment, etc all year round. Parents can even trade with other parents from different schools and sell items no longer in use at our College.
For the best results:
List items for sale
List Wanted Ads for those items you are looking to buy
The College’s textbook and uniform lists are loaded into the service to make listing ads easy
The system matches the ads of buyers with sellers and notifies the buyer (person with the Wanted Ad) via email
Buyers contact sellers and arrange where and when to trade
Most trading will occur with other parents from the school
Parents are well supported via Sustainable School Shop’s telephone (1300 683 337) and email help lines
The system is simple and easy to use - If you don’t have a computer, internet access or an email address, please call the Sustainable School Shop for assistance
You can pre-arrange the transaction and then trade after the texts are not required
All enquiries should be directed to the Sustainable School Shop on: 1300 683 337 or help is also available through ‘Contact Us’ on their website at www.sustainableschoolshop.com.au We are very excited about this new initiative being offered to parents and we hope you will make the most of the opportunity to annually recycle your student’s school items.
