Men of Batemen Update

Hello fellow MOBsters,

On Saturday November 21 is the Dads and Father Figure event (put this in your diaries). We are just finalising details for this event as it was originally planned for the Beer and Beef Festival, but unfortunately the dates for that event did not align due to effects of COVID-19 and subsequent changes in dates. However, we shall have a suitable alternative event for this date and notifications will be forthcoming. We are looking forward to another great term for the MOB and to keep seeing new dads/father figures coming along to the events and learning about the Fathering Project.

If you are not on the MOB WhatsApp group, please contact Lance on 0432 870 798 and I shall add you to the group to keep up to date with events and other MOB discussions that occur all the time. There is also the MOB link on the Fathering Project website which has lots of information for dads/father figures to have a look at which is very informative and this was looked at in the last MOB event.

Planning of events for 2021 will commence this term, so any suggestions for events are welcome and encouraged from the group so please keep them coming.


Bateman Primary School 50 Year Anniversary Time Capsule

Bateman Primary P&C are excited to announce that fundraising efforts from the Spellathon this year will go towards the purchase of a handcrafted time capsule and plaque to commemorate the school’s 50 year anniversary.  Each class will have the opportunity to contribute to the time capsule, providing your child with the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy at the school.

The time capsule will be buried and opened in 25 years at the school’s 75 year anniversary celebrations… in 2045!  What will the world look like then?  This year has been one that many of us will not forget but what a wonderful way to officially capture some of these memories and the imagination of the school community for years to come in a 50 year anniversary time capsule.


Festival of Bateman Update - (NEW DATE) Friday 20 November 2020


4.30pm to 7.30pm on the grassy knoll @ Bateman Primary School

It is with deep regret that we will need to postpone the Festival of Bateman due to the bad weather forecasted.  We want to ensure all our guests are safe and have the best time possible celebrating 50 years of Bateman. 

We are excited and ready to celebrate so the festival will be postponed to next Friday 20 November 4.30-7.30pm on the grassy knoll. 

All prepaid tokens and wrist bands are valid for next week.  Festival wrist bands have been sent home with the oldest child in each family, please look out for them in your child’s bag.  Should you be unable to attend the festival on the new date and cannot use your pre-purchased wrist bands or tokens please contact Amy Henry on 0417 171 644.

We are so excited that all of our suppliers have been so generous to postpone this event and join us next week. 

We hope to see all our lovely Bateman family and friends next week.
