Committee Meeting Notes
We had a MADECTA meeting with guest speaker Melinday Wyatt from Wyatt chiropractor. Melinda talked with us about the importance of looking after our spines for ourselves and our children that we work with. Melinda is hoping to implement programs into schools which highlight the importance of spinal awareness.
We also discussed our upcoming AGM which is to be held at West Mackay SS new prep building. This meeting will be at 6pm and we are asking people to bring along things that extend children's play.
November 26th will be our end of preschool celebration at 10am at the botanic gardens.
