F.R.I.E.N.D.S of the Village – we’ll be there for you!

Please get in touch with us via if you need anything!  Even if it’s just a suggestion, some feedback or a virtual hug!

Reminder: Send in your photos/videos for a teacher appreciation video

Lisa, one of the FOTV VPs, is putting together a little video for our wonderful teachers to say “we appreciate you” and to let them know we are all keeping (mostly) positive with our learning at home!

If you could send Lisa a little still/video of your kids learning at home that she can compile into one sweet video message, that would be ace! Please send to:

We will be emailing to Stephanie for her to forward on to her team, but we will also probably place the video on the LLV Parents FB page, so just be aware of that!

Term 3 FOTV General Meeting is postponed

We have decided to postpone our Term 3 GM, currently scheduled for Thursday 12 August, to later in the term.

New date TBD, but likely to be in Week 9 or Week 10.



Stage-based Zooms to keep us all connected

Instead of a GM, we thought you’d all like to get together in stages to share your lockdown highs and lows with other parents. During the week beginning Monday 16 August, we will set up a Zoom for each stage, kicking off @ 8pm on each of Monday-Thursday:

Mon 16/8 – Kindy
Tue 17/8 – Stage 1, Stage 4 (separate Zooms)
Wed 18/8 – Stage 2, Stage 5 (separate Zooms)
Thu 19/8 – Stage 3, Stage 6 (separate Zooms)

Zoom links for each will be sent via email and WhatsApp.

FOTV Business Directory

An FOTV Business Directory has been in the pipeline for a while but we thought now would be a good time to do something about it!  As we all adjust to living, working and consuming in lockdown (and with CoVID) let’s support those in our school community.

Please complete this form if your business can do with a little injection of LLV love and we’ll publish details on the FOTV website.

Well-being resources

All of us are handling living in lockdown and learning from home in different ways, but if you and/or your family need something to reflect on or just some inspiration, you may find these useful:

Life in Mind Australia: Self-Care Guide

WHO: Well-being resources

Lifeline: Info & Support during CoVID-19


Lockdown gift for our wonderful teachers

Let’s show our appreciation for what a tremendous job our LLV teachers and staff are doing through remote learning with a small donation.  We’ve set up this page on the FOTV Shop to collect contributions from parents for a small gift for each member of the LLV team.



Stay safe and well,
The FOTV Leadership Team, 
Jason, Lisa, Kathy, Chris, Alyssa and Angela
