We would like to announce that on Wednesday 31 May, 5 students from 5G will be raising money for Heifer by holding a bake sale for students, parents and helpers. This will take place on the downstairs play ground after school. Please bring 5 or 10 dollars if you would like to buy a tasty treat as you leave school or wait for your child.  With your support we can buy livestock for families in China.

Thank You,

A second-hand book sale for parents and students will take place on Friday 16 June from 12pm-3pm. Books will be available to buy for just $10 each. We have a range of children’s and adult’s books. If you have any books that you would like to donate please drop them off at the PTA office. If you can volunteer to sort out the books during the week of the sale or help with the sale then please contact the PTA office.

School Fair- 4 November 2017

For those who missed the previous announcement the theme of the fair will be ‘Save Our Oceans’. The fair is always a lot of fun. There will be lots of games, stalls, shopping opportunities and entertainment as well as the silent auction, food and drink. We will run an art competition using recyclable materials and have a strong environmental focus.

If you would like to be involved in the organization of the fair then please contact the PTA office. We are looking for people to assist with the financial side – just on the Saturday of the fair – so if you have some expertise in this area please get in touch. We also need someone to oversee arrangements for the bar and oversee the games and stalls. There will of course be a chance to sign up to volunteer at the fair, or in the week before, nearer the time.

If you are able to donate a Silent Auction prize for the fundraising efforts, new toys, new clothing or gifts then please get in touch with the PTA office.

Funds raised at the fair will be used for new climbing equipment and safety flooring for the students.

Please mark your calendar and help us to spread the word to the wider community. If you are able to put this poster up somewhere then please collect one from the PTA or school office.
