A very warm welcome to all our Blinky Belle families on this rather cool July day! I suppose it is now winter, the sun is shinning thank goodness!
Wow what a busy June we had this year. Our Pyjama Party was amazing, all the children dressed up for the occasion and had loads of fun in their pyjamas playing games at Pre-School.
Also our Multicultural Week was a treat especially with Drum Safari coming in and getting all our children into the rhythm of Africa by drumming. Our teachers were very busy creating culinary delights such as Dutch pancakes, Sushi, Nasi Goreng and Roti. Our children were very brave tasting and eating different dishes from all cultures around the world. Good work everyone.
Mick Conway from Young Australia Workshop Show got the message across regarding reduce, reuse and recycling. We had lots of laughter with his serious silliness.
On a serious note, the NSW Health Department would like to inform all parents and carers of a virus called Enterovirus. We have put up notices regarding this terrible infectious disease and urge all families to be very vigilant if your child develops a rash similar to hand, foot and mouth. At Blinky Belle we have taken precautions by disinfecting, and practicing good health and hygiene and ensuring that children are constantly washing their hands with soap and water and advise you to do the same at home. If for any reason you are unsure of any infection or symptoms similar to hand, foot and mouth, do not delay in seeking medical attention either through your family doctor or hospital.
We have a jammed packed July in store for you all!
Best wishes and take care of yourselves Dee xxxxxxxx
Indian Roti Recipe
Serves : 12
- 2 cups (500g) durum wheat flour (Italian flour)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup (200ml) water
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Preparation:15min › Cook:30min › Ready in:45min
- In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, salt, water and oil, until the mixture pulls away from the sides. Turn the dough out onto a well floured surface. Knead until smooth and pliable; about 10 minutes.
- Preheat an unoiled frying pan to medium high heat.
- Divide dough into 12 equal parts, form into rounds and cover with a damp cloth. Flatten the balls with the palm of your hand, then use a rolling pin to roll out each piece into a 15cm-20cm round.
- Cook the roti for 1 minute before turning over, then turn again after another minute. The roti should have some darker brown spots when finished. Best served warm.
